It’s the 21st June 2019 and our started with an alarm at 3:30am. Followed by a swift bulletproof coffee making session, flasks filled and thermos cups in hand. We get out the door for 4am and hop in the car to make our journey to Summer Solstice at Stonehenge.
Summer Solstice at Stonehenge
Today marks the summer solstice.
Where Stonehenge opens its doors for Druid celebrations from sunset to sunrise.
I had passed comment that I had never been to Stonehenge before, despite having grown up in England. Even if i had, I didn’t have a memory of it.
While on a recent 5 week trip back to England from Canada, I couldn’t think of a better way to see this wonderful monument, than to be up close, able to touch the stones, as the sun rises over the rolling hills of Tidworth.
The most beautiful thing was not the gorgeous glowing sun, rising over the most magical rolling hills, the sunlight diffusing softly through the mist that was lying low over blades of sun kissed grasses.
The most beautiful thing was the energy and diversity.
People of all ages, different walks of life.
From different countries, different ethnicities, different religions, all coming together in one place.
In a place of love. To all appreciate the rising of the sun.
Anywhere you looked, any gaze that you caught would be met with a loving smile.
Everyone, totally embracing their authenticity and expressing their individuality, in a safe space of acceptance and love.
And that… was beautiful.
Both to witness and be a part of.
No separation, no segregation, just oneness.
Under the shadow of the moon and the blaze of the sun.
Today, I am grateful.
Every Summer and Winter Solstice, they open the doors of Stonehenge for this wonderful celebration.
Really a magical experience if you find yourself venturing to England over one of these days.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post! It really does mean a lot!
