Traditions of holiday revels have been co-opted to push an environmentally-destructive consumerist agenda. How can we reclaim older holiday traditions, and create new ones like Climate Caroling, to heal our communities? What other actions can add meaning and build community with our holiday celebrations?
Climate Caroling is a festive form of activism. Singing alternate lyrics and other actions can add meaning and message to holiday celebrations. Novasutras Solstice events and other holiday practices show our reverence for life on Earth, and our interdependence with all beings.
This Solstice is June 20th/21st, when the sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer. Novasutras celebrates with a live online guided meditation focusing on global well-being and loving-kindness, and visualization of the better futures that could emerge.
This Solstice is Dec 20th/21st, when the sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Capricorn. The sun being overhead in southern Africa, and the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at dusk, make this Solstice a special time for honoring ubuntu. Novasutras celebrates with a live online guided meditation focusing on global well-being and loving-kindness.
