We are approaching the summer solstice, the longest and brightest day and shortest night of the year. It is the half way point of the year, the pinnacle of summer and a very potent time. After this time daylight begins to very gradually reduce until winter solstice.
Enjoy practices curated to align and connect us to this earth based festival, which is a celebration of light & abundant life force. Our practice will awaken us to and help us harness this heightened energy. At the summer solstice the sun appears to stand still and pause before it changes. This mini retreat also offers us a time out of everyday life to pause and refect.
Working with these dates on the celtic calender can help us honor the change of season, completion of cycles, and help us to acknowledge the cyclical nature of life.
On this afternoon we will blend together some nourishing practices to really bring us into our bodies, connect with our hearts, regulate our nervous systems and get ready to align with and move into the fiery expansive aliveness of the summer season.
These practices include
Yoga- Breath work, movement, and deeply restorative yoga
Meditation- Meditation to arrive and deeply restful Yoga Nidra.
Cacao Ceremony-A centuries old ritual. The cacao plant is is used as a heart healing and opening medicine. It assists in energetic healing and bringing clarity. People report feeling softer, open and relaxed, and more loving. We will enjoy organic, rich, delicious ceremonial cacao. Hot chocolate on a whole other level! It marries beautifully with our other practices of yoga and meditation.
Bring your favourite mug for the cacao, a blanket, eye pillow, cosy socks and anything you need for comfort.
*If you are on SSRI ‘S, Maoi’s or have a serious heart condition, please contact me in advance and I will advise some modifications around the cacao.
