December 17

On this potent day of the full moon, right before the Solstice portal, we will pause and enter the liminal space, the space-in-between, to drink from the eternal well of exquisite rejuvenation, clear seeing and guidance.

Softening into the deep quiet of the heart, embodying our prayers and activating subtle body awakening, we will gather the medicine from the triumphs and challenges of the year that has passed, and cast our dream seeds into the emerging dawn.

This is your temple, a space for deep exhale, contemplation, soulful replenishment and rest.

We will end our retreat with a special Havan—an ancient Indian Fire ritual—for purification, setting intention and prayers for you, your family and for the world. We will also chant a full round of 108 Gayatri prayer recitations which, in addition to sending healing vibrations into our aching world, harmonizes your whole body and being in the frequency of spiritual enlightenment.

 * The retreat will be live streamed via Zoom and will be recorded so you can participate in your own time if you cannot be there live.
