This time of year calls for much needed inspiration -- the light returning is encouraging, but the long, dark days are many. Warm your body and spirit to prepare for this time!
An elaborate altar in front of us, we will reflect on our losses and lessons learned and look ahead with little intentions to stay inspired through these dark days.
Reflection softens self judgement and creates space for a meditation that shifts something within. In this new space, your mind and body will be ready for full rest in a long-held restorative pose, with oils, pranayama and the harmonium to further assist your relaxation.
Please bring a journal, eye pillow and an offering for our altar.
Spirit of the Solstice will help you to feel a reverence for your practice, resolve for your past, excitement for your future and ready to usher in the light.
Saturday, December 29th / 1-4pm

Personal time and group activities will revolve around the theme, -- sadhana --
your path, your practice.
