Event description


~ Deep Winter Song 2018 ~

A Mystical Evening of Music and Story
Winter Solstice Swirl
WHEN: Sunday, December 16th, 2018- 7:30 pm music starts, doors open at 7 pm.
WHERE: Centre For Spiritual Living- 7621-101 Avenue NW Edmonton, Alberta

Deep Winter Song is an "acoustic" musical presentation exploring and celebrating the Mystery of the Winter Solstice, Christmas, and this wondrous dark season of winter. The night will include traditional and modern songs of winter, inspiring stories & poetry, angelic voices, inspiring words, delightful and mystical moods, laser starlight, beautiful projections, a time of Sacred Sound Journey, and a Solstice Fire Ritual.

There is a subtle aspect of the dark winter season and the Solstice/Christmas/Holiday season which lends itself to reflection on darkness, the stilling and hibernating of the natural world, AND celebration steeped in a sense of mystery and magic. At this time of year, and in this event, we engage and uplift the “positive” and healthy side of Christmas- the energy of gifting, holding each other more in our thoughts, coming together in generosity and anticipation of magical unfoldings. As we move beyond the grip of consumerism, it is a time to let the deep, yet playful part of ourselves emerge and to open the Heart's imagination to everyday miracles.

It is from this context that we offer inspiration and grounding, presenting an uplifting evening of warmth, music, and story, which serves to enrich a sense of the sacred, of wholesome celebration, light-heartedness, enjoyment, and depth of Heart within this busy and sometimes challenging month of December.

We sincerely hope that you will come and share with us in the music and depth of this season.

PERFORMERS include all local musicians, sound artists, singer-songwriters, dancers, and storytellers.

Martin Kerr, Waymatea Ellis, Keri Lynn Zwicker, Marcus Fung, Sparrow Grace, Nathalie Jackson, Raydel Martinez-Portuondo, Deborah Bortscher, and special guests.

The performance will be 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm. Doors open for seating at 7:00 pm.

A time of sharing Holiday cheer and delicious culinary delights will follow, as well as a chance to meet the performers and browse their CD recording offerings. A compassionate gifting table display will also be present as an option for Christmas gifts that make a difference in the lives of people in need.
