As promised a quick mail now we are approaching the summer solstice, which for me is a very important time. It’s my new year (Wep Ron Pet), though many Kemetics mark this one first week of August I tend towards the Old Kingdom period which places it at the summer solstice. Anyway, whatever and however you mark this festival, enjoy!
On Tuesday 24th June, 2014, I had the pleasure of being invited to attend a summer solstice ritual at Stonehenge for the first time. I’ve only visisted that place once before and really didn’t get much from it before, but this time, with a chance to enter amoungst the stones I was hoping for an experience that would renew my interest in the place. The experience certainlly did that and was the most magical of expereicnces, no dbout assisted by the amazing ritual that the Gorsedd of Cor Gawr had organised. The experience of seeing the sun hit that heal stone will forever be remembered. May I will attend another sometime, I’m pretty sure that will happen though not sure when. 🙂
Well, for a a change I partook in a Druid ceremony on a local beach at Folkstone this morning for the mid summer solstice. A little over cast but still a good experience with friends and new friends made there. Afterwards pulled out my rope labyrinth and a few had a go with it.
Its late now on the Saturday and the long day is starting to catch up with me. Still more to do, tomorrow I think now, my own ritual and then prep for a trip down to Stonehenge for a private ritual there that I have been invited to.
