The relationship between deep ecology and the need for a re-connection with the ancient wisdom & spiritual heritage of our indigenous roots, is the core theme of the program. My ancestry is predominately Celtic, so it is from the Celtic perspective that I explore this concept. No matter which ancestry one claims, the traditional ways of living in harmony and balance on our beautiful planet can restore vitality to ones life and benefit us all.
SOLSTICE - The 'standing still' of the Sun. Twice yearly this astronomical phenomenon results in the longest day/shortest night each Summer, or the shortest day/longest night each Winter. Timing for both of these being dependent on which hemisphere we are in. The actual calendrical date varies by a day or two, but essentially Solstice occurs in the third week of either June or December. Here in the Southern Hemisphere the 2017 Summer solstice falls on Friday 22nd December, and is exact @ 03:30am. [Northern Hemisphere will then experience Winter Solstice.]
