Solstice Celebration: Yoga, Sound Therapy, & “Dance of Life”
June 20 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for Yoga and Sound Therapy with Planetary Gongs and in learning the Dance of Life, as we celebrate the Solstice.
This Solstice marks the onset of summer, at the time of the longest day, in the northern hemisphere. It is aligned with the element of fire, passion, will & drive. This is the time to walk in alignment with your beliefs. It is a time for you to look at the grander scope of your life and spiritual path and take note of what is out of alignment. The Solstice is a time to step into the personal power you have cultivated this past year. There is the slow, sure rhythm of time that events will enter into our lives if we let them. If we just relax and let go, things will reach their fullness without effort or the striving of ego on our part.
Dance of Life with Kalitama
The Seven Pointed Star Activation/Dance of Life is a prayer in movement that brings balance and harmony with oneself and the earth. A powerful activation and opening to Universal Life Force, it is based on an ancient Cherokee tradition. This movement meditation opens up the channels that connect the four directions (East, South, West, North), heaven and earth, through your heart. The movement embodies many teachings: the balance of male and female within oneself, giving and receiving, walking one’s true path and much more.
Kalitama is an ordained Priestess of Isis and a marker of cycles. She offers ceremony for all life’s Rites of Passage and ritual for the turning of the earth’s wheel through the seasons. Her sense of spirit comes from ancient earth wisdom, deep family traditions and organic farming. She has shared the Seven Pointed Star Activation/Dance of Life with 1000’s of people, in many parts of the world, for over 30 years.
