Summer Solstice Party

SimplyWell and Holistic Rain are hosting another Summer Solstice Celebration on Thursday, June 21st in Springer Market Square with all proceeds going to local charity, Peace In Minds!

The event was a huge success last year, and so was the Fall Equinox Charity Party last September. We had hundreds of yoga mats spread across the Square and the energy was incredible. We're creating an even bigger and better event this year, and giving many new local entertainers and artists a chance to participate.

We’re excited to be giving back to the community while bringing people together to share in the beautiful Summer Solstice energy. Solstice is a time of celebration, intensity, renewal, great potential, and honouring the light in ourselves and each other and our deep connection with the Sun and Mother Earth.

We are all connected: people, the planet, and the sun. If we align ourselves with the power in others and in the natural forces around us, what we are unable to do on our own can be made to happen through the powerful energy of collective consciousness. That’s what this evening is all about.

Join us in the Square starting at 7pm for:

~ a solstice-inspired yoga class led by Meg Coffey accompanied by Crystal Singing Bowls by Yessica Rivera Belsham of Ollin
~ a magical Soundscape meditation by Yessica and her father Carlos
~ live music performed by local artist Julia Finnegan AND Noelle Maracle (seen on CTV’s The Launch)
~ holistic health practitioners will be offering mini healing sessions
~ an art market with solstice-inspired local creators and makers
~ a powerful community drum circle by Kingston Drum Circle
