MYSTICAL LIGHTS IN THE NIGHT SKY
This awe-inspiring 7 day Sacred Mythic Journey begins in the Arctic Circle, chasing the Northern Lights in the snowy slopes of Finnish Lapland. The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, offer an entrancing, dramatic, magical display that fascinates all who see it. It is a natural light display in the Earth’s sky caused by a collision of electronically charged particles interacting with the earth’s magnetic field. Join us as we seek out this breathtaking natural phenomenon and much, much more!
MYTHOLOGY OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
The Sami people whom we will visit in the North, indigenous to Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia, believed that the fires in the sky were the souls of the dead and that they had magical effects. Sami shaman drums often had symbols that depicted these fires. The Sami word for aurora borealis is “guovssahas”, meaning “the light you can hear”. The northern lights do indeed make noise and people who have heard it describe the sound as static or faint crackling.
A Native shaman might explain the Northern Lights by saying that the dancing waves of colour are powerful guardian spirits; the spirits of ancestors dance across the northern sky, weaving their way through the black of night, moving in harmony with the eternal rhythms of Father Sky and Mother Earth.
Let us attempt to fly into the sky in Christmas-y reindeer sleighs lead by the local indigenous Sámi people. The Sámi have a symbiosis with the reindeer and they have used their semi-domesticated reindeer for transport and milking for thousands of years. After our enchanting day with the Sámi people & the reindeer, we will give husky sledding a go to wrap up our exploration of the traditions of the laplands.
