Summer Solstice Mini Day Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
This manifesting mini day retreat will consist of a 1.5 hour Summer Solstice Asana Practice, 1 hour Solstice Circle & Ritual, and a 2 hour workshop where we will learn about and create our own incense. Light snacks will also be included.
Solstice Asana Practice: The summer solstice is the point in the year that all the energies and powers of nature and the sun are at their fullest potential. This makes it the perfect time to call in our vision, complete our goals and manifest our desires. In this practice, we'll use guided meditation and life coaching techniques to visualize and clarify our vision. We will then move through a slow flow beginning with easeful restorative poses, moving into a deep stretch yin practice, and building to a vinyasa style but slow flow of strong, energetic poses. As we raise energy through movement we will direct this powerful force towards manifesting our heart's desires.
Solstice Circle & Ritual: During the summer solstice it is traditional to celebrate the powers and energies of nature at their peak. We'll hold a traditional style circle and perform a simple ritual to honor the Goddess and her consort. During this time we will raise energy towards manifesting a goal or desire and participate in storytelling and myth making around the circle. Please bring a pen and journal/notebook.
Holy Smoke: Making and Using Incense: Incense has been used for spiritual purposes throughout history and across multiple cultures. In this workshop, we will explore the various types of incense and their use in ritual and meditation. Then, focusing on powdered incense, we'll explore the components and some of the most common ingredients. Finally, as a group, we will create and energetically charge a midsummer incense and a full moon incense. Each attendee will receive a small amount of both incenses to take with them to use in their own summer solstice and full moon meditations.
