Stonehenge Summer Solstice
A celebration of life - standing amongst the towering stones with
30,000 others watching the sun rise on the magical midsummer morning.
It's great to be able to stand inside the sacred circle of sarsens
as our ancestors did as dawn appears over the Heel Stone - much
better than from behind a fence. A traditional way to celebrate
the longest day of the year.
There's an amazing communal excitement at the solstice sunrise
as the spiritual ancestry of this prehistoric temple is celebrated
- with whoops of joy, drumming, horn blowing, cheering and applause...it
makes you feel good to be alive.
This re-enacting of an ancient ceremony brings a mystical link,
stretching right back through the aeons of time, producing almost
a celebratory communion with our ancestors.
The mighty stones seem to breathe...
