Winter Solstice 2012
Leeward Oahu, Hawaii
Wednesday, December 19 to Sunday,
December 23, 2012
Join us in sacred space to celebrate the Winter Solstice of 2012!
Aloha Fire Tribe Family
It is with great joy, humility and celebration that we invite you all to the last Fire Tribe Hawaii Gathering, which will be held in observance of Winter Solstice. This is an 'informal' Fire Tribe Hawaii circle to gather and celebrate 10+ years of spiritual community in Hawaii. We will have the opportunity to bring gratitude and closure to over a decade of alchemical rhythm, conscious collaboration, trance-formation, and creative play.
The founding members of Fire Tribe Hawaii have taken careful consideration in bringing a close to this cycle of circles. On the auspicious eve of 12.21.12, Fire Tribe Hawaii will end... nostalgically, magically, mysteriously, and intentionally as it began, all while beings, families, communities and galaxies begin anew.
Please join us.
We will gather around the Sacred Fire to sing, make music, and dance from dark until dawn. Our circles are participatory. Your offerings of prayer, poetry, music, chant and service are welcome. We encourage you to wear colors or costumes that evoke the season. We invite you to help build and decorate the Fire Circle on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and we will all join together to clean up on Sunday morning.
