Celebrate the longest day of the year with a traditional Solstice ritual led by Reclaiming Bay Area on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.

Last year, they planned a simple, participatory ritual involving singing. They brought food to share, as well as traditional Solstice supplies and trash bags. We expect it to be the same this year. Dress warm. Bring a towel if you want to plunge in the ocean. A flashlight and dry socks can be handy for afterwards.

RPC folk have outlined a simple, participatory ritual involving much singing. If you are interested in anchoring a role or gracing, be in touch, and do arrive by 7 for the pre-ritual circle.
