From Light to Dark: A Celebration of the Winter Solstice – 12/21/2017

The C.G. Jung Society presents

From Light to Dark: A Celebration of the winter solstice

As we observe the longest night, shortest day of the yearly cycle which we call the winter solstice, it is an appropriate time to focus on the wheel of the seasons and the shifting balance point of light and dark.   This celebration provides a connection to the timeless human experience of night and day, rest and activity, by turning inward and connecting to all that is outside ourselves, from the Earth beneath our feet to the furthest star.

Join us Thursday, December 21, 2017 from 4:30 to 6:30 PM in BREC’s City-Brooks Community Park, for a seasonally appropriate tale told by award-winning storyteller, playwright, and actor O’neal Isaac.  Star gazing and an explanation of the science of the solstice facilitated by the Baton Rouge Astronomical Society (BRAS) the BREC Highland Road Park Observatory will be ongoing during the event, finishing with a ceremony in the labyrinth facilitated by the C. G. Jung Society of Baton Rouge.  This event is free and open to the public.

In practice, a labyrinth can be a spiritual and/or psychological tool, utilized to stimulate creativity and enhance right-brain activity as well as connect us, not only to our center, our self, but also to other peoples, times, and places. Jung wrote that the work of the individual psychologically is to make the unconscious conscious—the labyrinth is a tool to facilitate that work, which Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called individuation. Join us for a unique, fun experience.
