Embrace the Energy that the Winter Solstice offers us – A Journey of Light and Renewal.

As we navigate through the depths of winter, embracing the solstice becomes an opportunity for profound spiritual growth. It encourages us to delve into the quietude and stillness of the season, allowing us to reconnect with our inner selves and the natural world around us.

During this time, meditation can be particularly powerful, enabling us to quiet our minds and deepen our awareness of the present moment. Journaling offers a way to reflect on our experiences, intentions, and aspirations, providing clarity and insight into our inner landscapes. Engaging with nature—whether through a walk in the forest, observing the winter sky, or simply feeling the crisp air—helps us align with the earth’s rhythms and find solace in its beauty.

The winter solstice reminds us that darkness is not to be feared but embraced as an essential part of the cycle of life. By acknowledging and accepting the shadows within ourselves, we create space for growth and transformation. Just as the solstice marks the turning point towards longer days and the gradual return of light, it symbolises our capacity for resilience, renewal, and the endless cycle of life’s rhythms.

In honouring this ancient and universal celebration, we cultivate a sense of reverence for the interconnectedness of all things. As we embrace the solstice, we invite the light of awareness to illuminate our path forward, guiding us with wisdom, grace, and the promise of new beginnings. Through a shamanic fire ceremony we are asked to reflect on what parts of ourselves are illuminated and we welcome the opportunity to let go of what no longer serves us. This will be followed with a smudging process to cleanse and clear, preparing for the Sound Session.
Our custom built sound chamber will be host to this years Winter Solstice Sound Session, it’s design ensures that you get the best out of the vibration of the ancient gongs and instruments. Making it the perfect mid-winter place for this gathering. The Sound Session will be vibrations created from our ancient symphonic and planet gongs, crystal singing bowls, earth drum, didjeridu and stunning vocals.
