We are entering sacred time.


Soon we will gather to honor the Solstice 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 Summer Solstice 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 portal 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 Summer Solstice Vigil

June 15 – 21, 2023

The word Solstice is derived from the Latin words, sol for “Sun” and sistere for “To Stand Still”. Summer Solstice is the time when in the Northern Hemisphere the sun reaches its highest point and there is a pause in the world.

This pause offers an opportunity to interrupt the momentum of habits and energy patterns that no longer serve you, and to plant seeds of aligned intention.

In the days leading up to Summer Solstice, you will receive inspiration to tune into this time of ripening—a poem; a meditation; simple practices and prompts to align yourself with the deeper currents guiding your next season.

During the 7 day Summer Solstice Vigil we will draw inspiration from The Japanese Sun Goddess, Amaterasu.

You will receive a total of 7 emails, with the final email on the day of Solstice. However, as always, you follow your own rhythm and timing.


Dates: June 15–21
Contribution: $33

The Wheel of the Year

Summer, Fall, Winter (2023) and Spring (2024) Vigils

When 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.


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.


Through short assignments, meditations, 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.


The day before we start you will receive instructions on how to create your own ritual on the day of the Solstice/ Equinox.

You will receive a reminder and preparation email the day before each Vigil begins.


Vigil Dates:

June 15-21, 2023 (Summer Solstice)
September 16-22, 2023 (Fall Equinox)
December 15-21, 2023 (Winter Solstice)
March 13-19, 2024 (Spring Equinox)

Contribution: $108

(The Wheel of the Year follows the seasons of the Northern Hemisphere)

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.

Oh do you have time
to linger
for just a little while
out of your busy
and very important day
for the goldfinches
that have gathered
in a field of thistles
for a musical battle,
to see who can sing
the highest note,
or the lowest,
or the most expressive of mirth,
or the most tender? 

Their strong, blunt beaks
drink the air
as they strive
not for your sake
and not for mine
and not for the sake of winning
but for sheer delight and gratitude –
believe us, they say,
it is a serious thing
just to be alive
on this fresh morning
in the broken world.

I beg of you,
do not walk by
without pausing
to attend to this
rather ridiculous performance.
It could mean something.
It could mean everything.
It could be what Rilke meant, when he wrote:
You must change your life.
