Do you need a boost of bounty, and beauty, and bare-feet, and bold colors? Welcome to Summer Solstice!
This holiday is an invitation into lush and creative self-expression. It is the call to your abundant nature.
Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, and the first day of Summer. The power of the Sun – the energy of life, the radiance of light, the generous giving spirit of love – is at its peak.
This threshold nudges you to tap into your enoughness. You are enough! You have the inner resources to keep becoming who you want to be. Show up. Give it what you got. You got a lot in there! Feel it? This pulsing power of plenty is your life force. Pour it out into the open the way that Mother Earth bejewels her trees with fruit, and fills the fruit with juice and nourishment.
If you’re feeling it, come celebrate it! If you feel the lack of it, come invoke it!
This Ceremony will be your own sacred space – individually and collectively – to converse with abundance, generosity, and gratitude. We’ll excavate it, call on it, receive it, and express it through the movement of our bodies, through breath, through meditation, through contemplation, and chanting, and journaling, and sharing.
There will be snacks, and tea, and fruit infused water all throughout. And at the end of the ceremony you will be served a delicious, nutritious, love filled, all organic, vegan, GF lunch, made of seasonal, local ingredients.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I can’t wait to celebrate this inspiring, nourishing holiday with you!
Beltane Somatic Ceremony (and a new moon in Taurus)
At the mid point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, while the light quickly gains momentum and reaches fast towards its peak, and the days become warmer, the earth spins herself into her fertility goddess form.
Beltane is a celebration of fertility, creativity, aliveness, passion, sensuality, wildness, and magic. Nature is bursting with life force. Mother Earth wears her green gown. Flowers decorate her lushness. The animal kingdom is hosting its mating ball. The Stag and the Goddess, Beauty and Beast, Love and Lust, unite in the arms of desire.
While the metaphors get quite sexy, the invitation of this seasonal, sensual threshold is to enter our own process of making love to life, breathing life into our visions, dreams, and creative desires, and pour love into everything that we create.
It’s time to grow, stretch, extend, expand, enliven, elevate, and fertilize our projects.
Join me for a Somatic Ceremony to spark magic and ignite the fire of will and desire, so that we can step into the season energized, inspired, and creatively turned on. We will use asana, pranayama, meditation, contemplation, mudra, mantra, chanting and the metaphors of this High Holiday to invoke our lust for life and explore our love for living. There will be time to journal, share, and hold space for one another.
This gathering is an opportunity to dive deep into yourself, to connect to the rhythm of Mother Nature, and to infuse your life with the power of growth and expansion.
We will gather at 11am. After ceremony, around 2pm, I will serve you a home made, love filled, organic, vegan, GF meal, made with local and seasonal ingredients. Snacks and tea will be available throughout.
The community aspect of these events have been super meaningful. Witnessing each other’s process of transformation is a powerful thing. I hope that you can join me for this inspirational Saturday, right between Spring and Summer.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to crafting this ceremony with you.
Let’s celebrate! We’ll gather at my home just a few days before Winter gives it’s throne to Spring, and prepare our bodies, minds, hearts, and creative spirits for the blossoming, unfolding, and opening of our lives that come with this season.
Spring Equinox is one out of two days in the year when light and dark are of equal power. On this day, we tip towards the light. Nature’s energy moves in the direction of expression, procreation, and manifestation.
We live within Mother Earth’s rhythm. Even if sometimes we forget that we are her children, her cycles and gifts are never out of our reach. All we need to do is open up our senses, let her in, and allow her to lead.
This Somatic Ceremony will invite us to invoke the creative force within our lives, to fly with our muse and our inspirations, as we grow a grounding roots, that connects us to the nourishment and stabilizing, actualizing forces of the earth. We will use a delicious sequence of asana, woven with powerful strands of breath, sprinkled with the magic of mantra and mudra to wake us up to the enchantment of this season. We will journal, we will share, we will chant, and we will support and inspire each other on our journey.
At the end of the ritual I will feed you a homemade, healthy, organic, vegan, GF, love filled lunch, made with local and seasonal ingredients. And of course there will be tea and snacks available all throughout.
I am delighted to share this holiday with you, and open my home as a transformative, inspiring, and safe space for you to explore, move through your process, and grow in your own unique and authentic way.
