Winter Solstice Gathering: Monday December 18, 6-9pm
The Season of Light is coming.
The Winter Solstice marks the day the sun returns. The eve before the Solstice is the longest night and then on Solstice the sun begins to shine longer and longer each day until she’s in her full glory on Summer Solstice. All over the world we have rituals of gathering and lighting up the winter at this time of year. The world celebrates the light returning with Christmas, Festival of the Lights, Hanukkah, and many other celebratory traditions practiced by many people and cultures. The Solstice is a sacred time to stop the daily to-do list and to be in harmony with the changing season. People look to natures cycles of the earth for lessons and guidance. The Winter Solstice magic is encoded deep in all our beings.
Gather with us to honor the wisdom in the darkness and to welcome the light back in. We have a rich and beautiful evening planned for our sacred circle. We will acknowledge our Great Mother Earth and the divine cosmos and witness the two beautiful powers in ourselves - the dark and the light. Both have messages for you.
We will gather around a table with fellow light seekers using Deer Mother as our guide. The beloved Deer Mother has been a revered figure for millennia honored by the people in the British isles through Russian and Siberia and into the Americas. It was believed she drew the sleigh of the sun goddess across the sky carrying the sun in her antlers on Solstice. Since pagan times have drifted into the mists She has been replaced by the 8 male reindeer who carry Santa's Sleigh through the night to deliver gifts. We are remembering our past and welcoming Deer Mother at this time. She has some wise words and sweet love to bestow on us all.
We will get quiet and honor ourselves as human and spirit. We will get creative and make sacred talisman to take home. There will be time for writing and guided meditation. We will participate in an ancient ritual of lighting flames to welcome the sun and you will leave with your own candle. Finally, we will meet the Deer Mother and your other personal guides who are here to guide us back to the light with ease and grace during a shamanic journey. Come soothe your soul with a warm circle of connection, sink into the darkness with us, and find your spark of light.
We can't wait to create magic with you.
Shannon & Erica
We only have 12 spaces total for this circle.
Beginners are always welcome.
What is Shamanic Journey?
Shamanism, the most ancient spiritual system known to humankind, is an earth-based spirituality that centers on all things being connected and having their own spirit and energy.
A shamanic journey is a central feature of Shamanism where through ritual and drumming, one travels into an altered reality or the "spirit-world" for the purpose of gaining information, wisdom, and healing. In this modern age we can be our own shamans as we meet spirit guides in a safe, conscious, and inspiring journey. It is a wonderfully imaginative way to come into connection with your own deep knowledge.
These moon circles are a place to raise your vibration and keep yourself shining.
