I am looking forward to the “Sophia Tradition” lecture later today at the Rosicrucian Cultural Center (6:30 at 2303 Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd. in NYC, if you’re interested), but coming Saturday afternoon, the Rosicrucian Order will celebrate the Summer Solstice.
From the publicity:
The Summer Solstice is one of the four solar celebrations of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the height of Summer, and provides a time of the greatest power of the Light. In celebration of this festival, which has been commemorated throughout human history, Rosicrucians consider the harmony of the four elements.
Our discussion will include a consideration of the significance of the Solstice in world spirituality and cultures across the ages, and astrological and other esoteric considerations. Participants are invited to share their own experiences of the Summer of the year, and its resonances in their lives.
The facilitator of this workshop, Steven A. Armstrong is a professional historian, philosopher, and teacher based in the San Francisco Bay area. He serves at the Grand Lodge in Membership Services. He is an active member of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC and the Traditional Martinist Order, serving as an officer in both.
The workshop will take place from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. At three o’clock the Imperator's Universal Attunement Exercise will begin.
At the same time on Saturday and continuing into Sunday at Rosicrucian Park in San Jose, California, the Rosicrucian Order will host these events:
Noon – Imperator’s Universal Attunement (Grand Temple)
12:30 – Summer Solstice Ceremony (Grand Temple)
1:30 – Tour of the Rosicrucian Research Library
Noon – Rosicrucian Peace Day Ceremony in the Rosicrucian Peace Garden
