If you are joining in with our Solstice Dawn 'virtual' guided meditation, it is important that you synchronise your watch or a clock, so you know exactly when to start playing your CD.
If you are in the UK, you can call the BT speaking clock (by dialling 123 - but remember they charge for the service). We also found another service (which we have tried), and while there is still a charge for calling this number, it is lower than the BT rate. If you call from a mobile phone, all the services will be more expensive. If you want to try this service, the number is: 0871 789 3642 (from outside the UK +44 871 789 3642).
NB: If you use any of these services make sure you hang up/close the call to avoid the danger of being continuously charged.
If you want to join in but are not in the UK you will need to synchronise using a time service local to you, then you can simply visit: WorldTimeServer.com
and follow the prompts to work out when you should start.
Enter the event time (which will be 22:00hr on the Solstice Eve), select your home location and the system will tell you the equivalent local time for the event start. For example, if you happen to be on the East Coast of the US you are 5 hours behind UK time so you should start the meditation at 17:00 (your local time).
Although the meditation was intended to be used in conjunction with a celebration ritual, we designed it so it can be used standalone if you would rather. It is best if you can listen to the ritual though headphones or earplug type devices because that will isolate you completely from the outside world and help you focus.
At the allotted time, make sure you are sitting comfortably, start the CD then sit back, relax sure in the knowledge that many others will be joining you on the very same journey.
We hope you enjoy the experience.
