Serious Spiritual Rituals / Interfaith Spiritual Practices
Our Solstice Program is led by Rev. JJ Crow.  JJ is a wise and inspired leader who will guide us through ritual and song as we let go of the old, and open to the new. She will open with a discussion of solstice, journeying inward, and the new birth. 

We will sing together ‘Grandmother’s Song’
