Join Christi as we take a moment to pause amidst the busy-ness of the season, on this longest night of the year... to turn within...and tend to the sacred parts of our be-ingness, while welcoming the return of the infant Solstice Sun!
You are invited to join us at Christi's home and sacred space in SouthWest FoCo on the night of the Winter Solstice. We will have a ceremonial gathering at the fire pit, walk the starlit labyrinth, and then close our evening with a 30 minute relaxing and healing Gong Bath.
Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring an insulated thermos or coffee mug to hold hot cider/tea while we gather around the fire pit, taking the time to pause...and ceremoniously tend to the most sacred aspects of our human be-ingness.
Participants may wish to begin reflecting on your past year, and opening their awareness to those things that no longer serve your Highest and Best Good. You may bring items, lists, or other representations of what you wish to cleanse or release from your be-ingness, to be burned in our fire ceremony.
Following the fire ceremony we will then walk the 60 foot, 11 circuit labyrinth. These 2 events will take place outside, so please be mindful of dressing for warmth and the possible walking in snow! It takes approximately 25-30 minutes to walk the labyrinth...spiraling in, and then spiraling out. For those unfamiliar with the layout of a 11 circuit Chartres labyrinth, please see the image below:
It is NOT a maze. There is one path in...and then we walk the same path out. After everyone has walked the labyrinth...we will then have a final gathering around the fire pit, before we make our way indoors to prepare to receive the healing vibrations of the 30 minute Gong Bath. Please bring blankets and pillows that will allow you to relax comfortably on the floor during the Gong Bath.
It is Christi's intention to hold the Solstice Celebrations no matter the weather conditions. Participants need to plan accordingly! If the weather should happen to be SEVERELY inclement...all festivities will be held indoors and a 50 minute, full ceremony Gong Bath will be held in lieu of walking the labyrinth.
Light refreshments and hot cider will be served. This is a non-alcoholic event. Please contact Christi with questions on how to best prepare for the evening. Christi will send an email to all registered individuals a couple of days before the event with directions to her home and sacred space. If weather should prove to be SEVERELY inclement the day of the event...Christi will send another email with details on how the evening will unfold!
