From Darkness to Light  – Candlelit Labyrinth Walk and Sound Bath 

7pm-9pm, Thursday 20 December, St Augustine’s Event Centre, BN1 6EA 

On the eve of Winter Solstice come and join us for a rich and special evening of candlelit labyrinth walk, meditation and sound bath, evoking in symbol, simple ritual, poetry, voice and music the movement from darkness to light. 

Many spiritual traditions hold this period of the year as a time of waiting in the darkness and looking forward to the return of the light. In the Christian tradition, advent means “the coming” and the anticipation of the Christ light emerging in the world. The evening is an invitation to connect to our inner light, the Divine Spirit, within each of us, which guides us on our life’s journey, especially when the outer world can feel overwhelming and the darkness all too evident. There will be opportunity during the evening to transition, as you wish, between labyrinth walking, sound bath and meditative reflection using art materials. No prior experience of meditation, sounds baths or labyrinths is required.

For more details and to buy your tickets (£12 standard, £7.50 concessions) please visit Eventbrite. Tickets must be bought in advance as numbers are limited.  

“Silence is a dwelling place that is at once horizontal, allowing connection with the thisness, the singularity of everything, but also, at the same time, vertical. It allows us to find through those things doorways to the eternal.” Richard Rohr
