Dear Cortesians

In 2015 I attended my first Winter Light Spiral on Cortes. It was a deeply wonderful experience offered to our Community by Jennifer Stevens and Alanah Caron.

In honour of Jen, who passed in August, Alanah and Friends are inviting you, this Wednesday Dec 21 at 5:00, to another gentle, candle lit evening.

Please join us in this ancient reverent Celebration.

The Winter Light Spiral is made of evergreen boughs laid upon the floor. Each of us will have the opportunity to quietly walk to the Centre and light a candle. While walking back to your seat you place your candle anywhere on the Spiral.

Candles are provided.

Mark Braaten will lead us in some Community Singing afterwards.

Doors open at 5:00 and we will begin at 5:15


Families are very welcome although we ask that children bring an adult with them.


It is going to be a White Solstice by all accounts so please carpool, walk or sleigh.

For more Info you can email Alanah at

Solstice Blessings, Happy Ho Ho and Merry Everything
