Holy Hikes’ Summer Solstice Service at Church of the Wildwood


Holy Hikes’ Summer Solstice Service at Church of the Wildwood

Come join Holy Hikes and help us create a living liturgy at a Summer Solstice Service in Redwood Regional Park. Bring a prayer! Bring a poem! Bring and instrument and a song to share! We will create this liturgy together in this sacred place— a true living liturgy. 

We will meet at 12:30pm at the parking lot at the end of the road at Canyon Meadow Staging Area in Redwood Regional Park. We will walk together from the parking lot, a 15-min (1/2 mile) walk along the flat, paved Stream Trail to the location of the old Church of the Wildwood at what is now named Old Church Picnic Area. There will be seating available during the service. See the walk here: https://maps.app.goo.gl/Szg8ciAL6vDF7avJ6?g_st=im

 We will open with Prayer to the Seven Directions and have space to create ritual together. You will help create this liturgy. If you play an instrument that’s portable, bring your instrument and a song to share. If there is a short reading or poem that is fitting for the solstice/equinox service that you would like to share, please bring it. We will have time for offering intercessions and thanksgivings, and there will be time for silent meditation. All are welcome to attend.

 In 2024, Holy Hikes—San Francisco Bay Area will be offering four gatherings aligning with the Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Fall Equinox, and Winter Solstice.
