We are entering sacred time.


Soon we will gather to honor the Equinox Portal, a time-outside-time, brimming with creative potential, eternal wisdom and initiation.  

We warmly welcome you to pause, and tune into these deeper currents of creativity and rejuvenation by joining us in an upcoming
7 Day Fall Equinox Vigil.




You also have the opportunity to join all four portals
The Wheel of the Year,
which includes four 7 Day Vigils leading up to each
Solstice/ Equinox portals throughout the year.

Each Vigil we will practice with a different Goddess who will be our guide into liminal space.


You can participate in these online Vigil offerings (either one or all four) from anywhere in the world.


7 Day Fall Equinox Vigil

September 16 – 22, 2023

Equinox is a sacred portal in the year cycle where the world comes into perfect equilibrium, equal day to equal night, the balance of light and darkness. 


In the northern hemisphere the summer is coming towards its end, the mornings are cooler, and days are shorter. We are moving closer to fall, a time for harvest, rest, darkness and surrender. 


This holy pause is a portal, an opportunity to interrupt the momentum of habits and energy patterns that no longer serve you.


During the 7 day Fall Equinox Vigil we will draw inspiration from Hekate, the Greek Goddess of the Thresholds.


In the days leading up to Equinox, you will receive inspiration to support you in tuning into this time of harvest and letting go—a poem; a meditation; simple practices and prompts to align yourself with the deeper currents that will guide you in this upcoming season.  



Dates: September 16 – 22

The Wheel of the Year

Fall + Winter 2023, Spring + Summer Vigils 2024

hen you sign up for the Wheel of the Year, you will be supported in rooting yourself and your life in the creative cycles of the Living Goddess. Through embodiment practices, short assignments, poetry and Goddess Mythology, you will gather the medicine from the triumphs and challenges of each passing phase of the year, and cast your dream seeds into the new season of your life.


In each of the four Vigils (Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Fall Equinox, Winter Solstice) you will practice with a different Goddess whose medicine offers you insights, blessings and support needed to enter the next phase of the year cycle.


The practices vary depending on the portal we are entering, though each 7 day Vigil will be a time for pause, deep exhale, contemplation and soulful replenishment.
You will also receive instructions to create your own ritual on the day of the Solstice/ Equinox.


In the days leading up to Equinox, you will receive inspiration to support you in tuning into this time of becoming and blossoming—a poem; a meditation; simple practices and prompts to tune in, complete unfinished business, and align yourself with the deeper currents that will guide your next chapter in the wheel of the year.


The day before each Vigil begins, you will receive a reminder and preparation email.



Vigil Dates:

September 16 – 22, 2023 (Fall Equinox)
December 15 – 21, 2023 (Winter Solstice)

Thank you dear Chameli and sisters at Awakening Women for taking the leadership to hold this Sacred Space. The message of softening was there again; softening of the senses and the mental grip. May all that’s done be a blessing to all. Namaste.

I sit listening as the wind asks its eternal questions:
What will our generation of women pass on to our daughters?
What will be our legacy
to the daughters of our great-granddaughters?
And the earth sings her response:
Offer yourself … yourself.
