Please join me for a transformative Winter Solstice Ceremony!
The Winter Solstice is a time for reflection, renewal and rebirth. As the darkness envelopes our northern hemisphere, we embrace the opportunity to go within and tune into our deepest longings, tender places of loss, and moments of expressing our true nature over the last seasonal cycle. In surrendering to the gentle transformative process of alchemy, we are able to re-kindle our inner-light in synchronized timing with the return of the sun.
Through High Ceremony, sympathetic magic and earth offering rituals, we release what is ready to be transformed and birth our-Selves into the next phase of our soul purpose and earth walk. Based in the mystical Andean traditions of sacred reciprocity (ayni), love (munay), and light (k'anchay) we offer our gratitude for the opportunity to live lives of beauty and grace, and step into the next cycle of expression with lightness of Be-ing.
Please join me for this powerful celebration of the dark and embodiment of the light.
During our time together, we will:
Share through Council Process
Participating in an herbal tea ceremony in preparation for shamanic journey
Journey within to alchemize our soul-bodies
Express our gratitude for this human earth-walk through a traditional Andean Despacho Ceremony
Receive an initiatory transmission as beings and beacons of light
Send our prayers of love and beauty through the burning of the despacho with an outdoor fire ceremony
