We are absolutely thrilled to announce our 1st official public Solstice Celebration. This is our all time favourite festival of the year, and to celebrate the returning of the sun we will be collaborating with our dear friend David from Gong Therapeutics and his exceptional collection of gongs.
Experience a full nights immersion in the cosmic vibration of these impressive gongs.
Winter Solstice celebrates the returning of the SUN. To mark this special moment in the year we will be surrounding ourselves with the sounds of gongs throughout the night until the Dawn Star rises bringing with it a new cycle in our calendar. We will be opening our Gong Puja in ceremony, offerings & prayer. Then our sounding will begin with the gongs being played throughout the night as we lie, absorb and connect. During the night each person will have an opportunity to play the gongs. Our ceremony will close at 7am.
Florence House is a beautiful cliff-side retreat centre located in-between Saltdean & Beachy Head, in Sussex on the south coast.
A simple vegan/gluten free breakfast will be provided. Please do bring what you feel you will need for your comfort for the night. i.e. bedroll, sleeping bag, sheepskin etc. There are some pillows at the centre, but we strongly advise you bring what you need to be as comfortable as possible. Some people brought full mattresses on our 1st event. So that gives you an idea of how comfortable you can feel to do exactly what you need.
The Kitchen will be open during the night so you can help yourself to drinks. There is free parking in front of Florence House.
