Father’s Day/Summer Solstice Ceremony and Labyrinth Walk

Sunday, June 21, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

You are warmly invited to join the East Bay Labyrinth Project (EBLP) in celebrating the Summer Solstice, Father’s Day, and the creation of an 11-Circuit Labyrinth at the Berkeley Marina on the site approved by the City. This FREE event is open to all to cultivate a sense of place, of building community while building a new labyrinth, and of recognizing mystery in our midst. The program will consist of a brief ritual to honor the Solstice and Father’s Day, followed by a walk around a temporary labyrinth marking the dimensions of a permanent one for which EBLP is fundraising. Come celebrate this time, this place, and its new-founded purpose!

What/When

Music, community, ceremony, and labyrinth peace walk, with refreshments catered by La Mediterranee (courtesy of Jen Viegas):

  • 2 to 4 p.m. program: Ritual invocation and drop-in labyrinth walk. The program will be opened by renowned world musician Alan Tower playing the huaca–a triple-chambered earthen clay flute with split mouthpiece, a modern hybrid instrument of resonance based on ancient Peruvian whistling vessel–and with an invocation led by poet/artist Rafael Jesús González, followed by a labyrinth peace walk introduced and facilitated by singer/songwriter Margie Adam.
  • 3:50-4 p.m.: Closing ritual

Where

East Lawn of the Berkeley Marina to the east of the Cal Sailing Club parking lot, facing back toward the bicycle/pedestrian bridge with a lovely view of the water and the East Bay hills.

Directions

While heading west, stay on the left side of University shortly after it bears left at its intersection with Marina Boulevard, and look for the temporary sign pointing to the location. Easily accessible by bus, bike, or car.

Why?

For community, for "sacred fun," for mystery, and for bringing our lives into deeper relationship to one another – and because it’s an opportunity to create a more conscious relationship with our bioregion by invoking the spirit of the 11-circuit labyrinth at this power spot.
