Nature’s forces and energies affect us with each season.
When we develop a relationship with the cycles of the seasons we can stabilize our lives within a deeper process.
The Winter Solstice is the shortest day and longest night of the year.
It reminds us to surrender to the darkest time of the year as a source of nourishment. Surrendering to the dark can be a hard thing to do in these modern times. It’s a growth edge for me every year. It’s a process I both crave and resist simultaneously.
I invite you to take a moment of restoration to sit in the darkest point of the year and call back the light on the Winter Solstice coming up on this Tuesday December 21st into Wednesday December 22nd.
The term “solstice” comes from the Latin words sol (Sun) and sistere (to stand still). And it marks the coming rebirth of the Sun.
The Winter Solstice is a cyclical marker, marking a time of the year when I like to set aside a moment to honor what has been and what I’m laying to rest as the year comes to an end.
I hope this gathering of offerings below will support you to come into ceremony with yourself in order to be present with all that you’re going through, sitting with, reflecting on and wondering about.
There IS a magic about this time of year to be sure. A time of year that reminds us to find restoration in the darkest days, encouraging us to ceremonially lay to rest everything asking to be set free.
A List of Winter Solstice Activities
Ritual + Breathwork Videos
Reiki + Ritual Recording (from December 2020)
Set aside time to tap into the power of the darkest time of the year. When we
take a moment in ceremony to tune in to our inner truths we can tap into a potent liminal space that reminds us who we really are.
This ritual will support you through intention setting with a guided Reiki healing meditation and a writing exercise to lay to rest the year and be in stillness on the darkest night of the year.
We will observe ourselves in the liminal space between the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle, while also calling back in the light, in celebration of the Solstice + Yule!
Breathwork Wksp: Surrender to the Mystery (from Nov 2021)
If all the lights went out, where would you find resource? In this breathwork workshop we surrender to the mysts within to turn yourself back to the soil. There is a knowing that comes out of allowing ourselves not to know. During this healing journey we conjure our fears so we can face them. After all, we can only rise after we descend.
We’ll look at trauma informed concepts to heal our fears and ways to support us in surrendering safely. Surrendering is a really hard concept to face when we don’t feel safe. We’ll talk about ways to build safety in the nervous system when working with fears so that we can re-enter a state of flow with life and learn to love the dark.
