WE ARE THE COSMOS – SUMMER SOLSTICE IN STONEHENGE

Every year, the 21st of June is the day of the summer solstice. It is the longest and brightest day of the year, when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky. Pagans mark this most powerful of days with celebrations – and where could be better to celebrate than in the 4,500-year-old stone circle at Stonehenge in Wiltshire. Druids, Hippies, Hare Krishnas and party folk come from all over the world to celebrate that special sunrise. Accompanied by the beating of drums and the blowing of horns, thousands of people stand and wait for the first glimpse of the sun to light the monument – and when the first rays of golden light finally appear in the circle,no one regrets having missed a night’s sleep. Instead a feeling of connectedness takes over – connectedness with nature, with people and civilisations before us and with each other.
