Winter Solstice Celebration

Program is Full
Align with the rhythms of nature as we celebrate the hibernal solstice. December 21st marks the official beginning of winter and is the perfect time to welcome in the season with stillness, reflection and turning inward. Join Lori Bower* in honoring the longest night and shortest day of the year by gathering around a bonfire for an intention setting ceremony followed by a candlelit walking meditation. Our evening will conclude with partaking in a special cacao meditation that will warm and open our hearts to the new year ahead.

The celebration will be held in a beautiful, serene outdoor setting** that will nourish your entire being.
