The summer solstice marks the height of summer – the time of year when I feel the strongest connection with the power of the sun. Today I can literally feel the sun’s energy soaking into my skin and nourishing me. The abundance of this energy overflows my capacity for absorption. I bubble up with laughter and spontaneously find myself dancing. I feel awake and alive, staying up late into the night to celebrate the abundant joy that I feel. I am filled with gratitude for all my blessing – good friends, wonderful food to eat, and a happy home.
The summer solstice has been celebrated by many cultures throughout history and continues to be celebrated in modern society today. Almost all of these celebrations are rooted in our human relationship with the earth and a world-wide tradition of honoring the reciprocity between Man and Nature.
In the spirit summer radiance, I invite you to share your stories of summer.
