Winter Solstice Chant & Dance

Winter Solstice Chant & Dance - Celebrate the Light of the Sun with the Goddess Lucina
Celebrate the Light of the Sun! - Show the way Lucina!
Dance the Round on Sabbat night! - Blessed be the Great Mother!

In the European Goddess tradition, Lucina is the Maiden Goddess of the returning light at Mid-Winter Solstice. She wears a crown of candles and evergreens, and a white gown with a red sash. As Goddess of Childbirth, She also represents the rebirth of the New Year and heralds the return of the light of the sun!

Altísimo Corazón - Incarnating the Qualities of the Divine Feminine
Altissimo corazon que floresca, Que floresca la luz! Que floresca!
"The Highest Heart, How it Radiates Divine Light!"

In the Carribean the "Divine Feminine" of the Catholic tradition [Mary]
is often blended with the "Divine Feminine" of the indigenous Voodoo Goddess tradition

[In Celebration of the Virgin of Guadalupe Feast Day]
When the Sun's Reborn!

When the Sun is Reborn - Yule dance & chant - Winter Solstice song - It is the Great Mother giving birth to him!
WOMEN: It is the Great Mother giving birth to him! - Great Mother giving birth to him!
CHORUS: When the Sun comes up again! - When the Sun's reborn!

A Celtic Parting Blessing - "May the Road Rise with You!"

"Blessed Be!"
This ancient Celtic Blessing draws on the 4 Elements of Earth, Air, Water & Fire
and embodies the 3 key aspects of a Parting Blessing...

Sadness (that our time together is over)
Well-wishing (for each other's future)
Appreciation (for who you are, and for being part of my life's journey!).
 We incorporate this old saying into a beautiful Blessing Ritual circle.

"May the Circle Be Open! - But Unbroken!"

From "Ancient Mother" Album by Robert Gass & On Wings Of Song
