A ritual to activate yourself, and charge your body, mind, heart, and creative spirit with the power you need in your life right now.
The first day of Summer, and the longest day of the year – Summer Solstice is the moment when the sun stands tall and strong in the height of its power. On this day we celebrate the peak of light. And on this day we celebrate the return of darkness. From this day till Winter solstice, the days will slowly get shorter. We celebrate ourselves as complex, and as whole. The power of the sun is at its peak. And we are invited into our own vitality, into our own strength, into our own illuminating qualities, into our own abundant nature.
Join me for an embodied journey through the earth’s fertility and the sun’s magnetic power, to celebrate Summer Solstice. We will explore mythology and evocative metaphors associated with this radiant moment, as the season turns from Spring to Summer. And we will bring these stories and ideas into our bodies through breath, movement, mantra, mudra, and meditation.

What to have: A mat, a journal, a pen, two pieces of paper (separate from your journal)
Optional: A smokey tool (Sage, Palo-Santo, Incense, etc), a candle, an essential oil you associate with strength and vitality (orange, basil, mint, or anything you feel called to anoint yourself with on this day).
Recommendation: Create a Summer solstice altar with red, orange, yellow, and gold colors. Place an object that represents light, energy, strength, and growth for you. Decorate with sunflowers or any flowers that remind you of the sun. Put a little cup of water. If you have a moment and a deck, draw a card to see what energy you need for this time. Place it on the altar. If there’s a deity that makes you feel Summery, place an image of it on the altar. Write down three things you want to charge your life with right now, and place that note on the altar. Place a crystal that feels right for you for this time. Any herbs you want to place on the altar – think medicinal, or something that peaks in growth at this time.
