We are all here because of our common interest, well our natural human instinct to grow food and connect with our giver of life, earth. getting back in rhythm with the cycles of the earth are so important and the Solstice is a very important yearly cycle akin to the In & out breath of the earth/sun, it is described as stillness of the sun, the moment of shifting axis back in or back out depending on northern or southern hemisphere perspective.
I think it is a good time to get still within ourselves and let the natural rhythm of slow time resonate for a few moments. Happy solstice everybody. enjoy the stillness..
