Celebrating Seasonal Rituals • Summer Solstice
Gathering in this quarterly circle, we honor ancient holy days that women have celebrated for millennia. We feed and strengthen our spirits with many different gifts and directions: Meditation; music and sound; anointing our energy fields with Aura-Soma; color considerations; the gifts of Nature; positive readings; and, of course, the support of each other! If you yearn for a small, peaceful, sacred space in which your soul can be fed, this quarterly gathering is worth experiencing. Enjoy the uplifting effects of shared sacred ritual. The element we will be focusing on is air. The Aura-Soma colors are royal blue and turquoise for this particular circle. Bring a small, sacred object to add to the altar we co-create, if you’d like.
Sunday, June 23 • 10 am–11:30 am • $15 members/$20 non-members • MaryBeth Stemp & Claire Houston; MaryBeth is a psychotherapist and teacher by profession. Claire is a psychotherapist, an interfaith minister, the founder/director of WSW, and loves sacred space.
