winter_solstice_candlesThe Winter Solstice is the day in which the night is longer than the day. To many of the ancient civilizations this date marked the beginning of the year. The Maya Elders say that during this moment, the Sun is young and it is the perfect time to plan our purposes for this New Year. We must take this opportunity to ask for our personal and common wishes, bearing in mind that what’s most important is to ask for light and harmony, specially for Mother Earth; to pray for peace and spiritual growth.

The importance of this date is the opportunity we will have to connect with thousands of people throughout the planet that will be making their rituals and ceremonies to absorb this energy.

Whatever your faith, we ask you to take ACTION, which should be the spirituality of nowadays. We ask you to participate in a ritual or ceremony, on a prayer, or even just to light a candle and ask for humanity to be again in harmony with Mother Nature, to ask for people to have a communitary purpose instead of selfishness, to ask that the energy opens a channel for people to connect with spirituality.
