The fabric of the universe is imbued with the cosmic principles of creation, and thus the journey of consciousness is intrinsically connected to the natural world, along with the movements of the sun, stars, and planets.

Many ancient people understood this connection, and practiced sacred ceremonies at special times of year – particularly at the solstices and equinoxes, which are the four major stages of the earth’s annual journey around the sun.

Some of the most famous ancient megalithic sites in the world align to the solstice and equinox, including Stonehenge, the Great Pyramids and Sphinx of Egypt, and the Moai of Easter Island. And some of the greatest spiritual figures in history, such as Krishna, Jesus, Osiris, and Mithras, were associated with the sun and had major life events at the solstice and equinox.

It’s all evidence that has been left behind of the timeless spirituality of the sun, which is as ever present as always and can still be practiced today.
