Winter Solstice in Australia
A few days ago in Katoomba, Australia, this Winter Magic Festival parade and belly dance performance by the Ghawazi Caravan celebrated the season. (You do know that in ancient times, this dance was connected to Goddess-honoring, and that it was also used to prepare women for childbirth.) This video opens and closes with a brief look at the Winter Solstice observance at Pagaian Moon Court. All events took place in the Blue Mountains of Australia. The videographer is Taffy Seaborne and the narrator is Glenys Livingstone, who I want to thank for alerting us to it.
