On Sunday, December 19, ladies will converge to celebrate the shortest and darkest day of the year, the Winter Solstice. This alternative holistic event will take place at White Rabbit Medicine Lodge on Orchard Road in Dover-Foxcroft starting at 2 PM.
This event is being put on before the actual Winter Solstice on December 22 in order to bring more people together a weekend evening and is a back-to-basics, feminine experience surrounded by bold and beautiful women who appreciate each other's company and a connection to nature.
The evening will consist of warm beverages surrounded by the warm light of candles. Dress warmly with thrift store finds or bundled up in your newest winter clothes or your warmest pajamas.
Enjoy dinner before the sun sets around 3 - 3:30 PM. The sunset is expected at 3:53 PM when an evening stroll will take place. Sit around a bonfire and take in the beginning of longer days to come surrounded by feminine energy.
The event emphasizes the importance of being comfortable in your clothes and comfortable in your skin, just bring you and have a good time. Bring warm clothes, a flashlight, something to sit on and whatever 'feels' right.
