A Winter Solstice Celebration of the Return of Light

The Olean Meditation Center welcomes all to “A Winter Solstice Celebration of the Return of Light” at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 21 in the Center at 2275 Dugan Rd., Olean.

The celebration will include chanting, yoga, a guided meditation, and an interesting and informative talk about the ancient (and modern) meaning of the winter solstice as the calendar pivots to lengthening daylight at the darkest time of the year.  Considerable symbolism of the winter solistice has been woven into religious and cultural ceremonies since ancient times.

Betsy Afton of Yoga Betsy and Kim LaMedola of Wellness with Kimberly will lead the morning celebration. Both yoga teachers have popular yoga practices at the Center and are certified through the Himilayan Institute.

A donation of $5 is requested.

For information, call the Center at 716-375-5550.
