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 Winter 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 Winter Solstice Vigil

December 15 – 21, 2024

The word Solstice is derived from the Latin words, sol for “Sun” and sistere for “To Stand Still”. It is the time where the sun reaches its highest or lowest point and there is a pause in the world. This pause is a portal, an opportunity to interrupt the momentum of habits and energy patterns that no longer serve you. 


In the days leading up to Solstice, you will receive email inspiration to support you in tuning into this time of death and rebirth—a poem; a meditation; simple practices and prompts to clear out, to complete unfinished business, and align yourself with the deeper currents that will guide your next spiral around the sun.


During the 7 day Winter Solstice Vigil we will draw inspiration from The Goddess Usha.


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


Dates: December 15 – 21

The Wheel of the Year

Winter (2024) and Spring, Summer, Fall (2025) 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:

December 15 – 21, 2024 (Winter Solstice)
March 14 – 20, 2025 (Spring Equinox)
June 14 – 20, 2025 (Summer Solstice)
September 16 – 22, 2025 (Fall Equinox)


Contribution: $108

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.

Whom should I turn to,
if not the one whose darkness is darker than night,
the only one who keeps vigil with no candle,
and is not afraid — the deep one,
whose being I trust,
for it breaks through the earth into trees,
and rises, when I bow my head,
faint as a fragrance from the soil.


~ Rainer Maria Rilke
