Lakshmi Wheel of the Year
Embody and navigate ancient memories in modern times…
Ritual invokes the sacred, restores balance, and ignites our innermost wisdom embarking on the soul’s journey to inner harmony, wholeness and purpose. Through ritual, we are able to amplify and activate healing & positive change into the world. Beginning with 2018 Autumn Equinox, Lakshmi is celebrating each Solar and Fire holy day.
Samhein: Wed. 10/31 6-8pm, by donation – Samhein in many cultures is considered the beginning of the year. Honoring our ancestors when the veil is thin, learn to receive guidance and insight from those who have gone before us and setting heart and mind to the upcoming year. Take a breath, go in and honor the potency of the dark part of the year.
Winter Solstice: Sat. 12/22 3-5pm – full moon – Winter Solstice is one of the most powerful times to go inward and connect to the teachings and to the Self.
The sun stands still for 3 days. The Wheel stops and starts again. The sun is reborn. From Samhein to Winter Solstice, the season has been deepening into the cave of silence and the stillness that is winter. The life force energy of nature has retreated into the womb of the earth herself, fertilizing the seeds of last years harvest. At the Winter Solstice, we experience both the return of the sun and the renewal of the dreams that have been sleeping in our bellies.
Join Anne, Julie, Lissa and Denise for a walking fire / drumming meditation and indoor drumming and guided meditation for rebirth, renewal and rejoicing.
Imbolc: Fri. 2/1 Imbolc is a sacred time to spend with Self. Take the time to silently welcome this gateway of time halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Imbolc is the time to nurture the newness of our dreams by holding them close. Light a candle, light a fire and renew your visions and dreams while they are beginning to awaken.
Spring Equinox: Wednesday 3/20 6pm for celebration, at the Spring Equinox, the fortitude of masculine and the receptivity of feminine comes into rare balance, and with it; illumination and enthusiasm. The forces of nature are always in harmony, but only twice a year are they in genuine balance offering deep medicine after the long dark cold winter’s sleep. Join us for the Lakshmi celebrations Wednesday, March 20th 6-8 pm for the inherent sense of ecstasy that comes when this balance of opposites manifests, and the mystery of Resurrection reveals itself. We’ll pause and notice what’s awakening and birthing from the Earth and from ourselves.
Beltane: Wed. 5/1 – Honoring this sacred day with ancient ceremony that applies to our daily lives.
Summer Solstice: Fri. 6/21 – Summer Solstice is another one of the most powerful times for celebrating with ceremony.
