winter solstice: dreaming & divinationFriday, December 20th, 2019 from 7pm-10pm
“Enter the night and you’ll find the light,
That will carry you to your dreams.
Enter the night, let your spirit take flight,
In the field of infinite possibilities”- Lisa Thiel.
The longest night is upon us. Winter Solstice is a time to honor the darkness as Source and Void, the Great Cauldron of Rebirth. It is at this time that we honor the Great Mystery and the Wise One within. We also honor our elders, teachers and mentors- those who have passed on their wisdom of experience. Our teachers may also be non-human beings, such as animals, trees, plants, elements, or guides from the Spirit World. This is a perfect time to pay homage to them and also realise the wisdom we have inside of us, from our own experience through the past year.
It is also a festival of light, hope and Spirit. As the opposite end of the wheel from the Summer Solstice, where we honor the sun, but also bade it farewell- Winter Solstice is the time where we welcome the sun back, although it is a small spark of hope and renewal at this point, with much time yet to grow and expand into our lives.
This time of year, our physical energies are low, but psychic and intuitive energies are high. This reflects our state of being while menstruating and at the new moon. It is a wonderful time in the cycle to rest, reflect, and dream our new cycle into being. It is also an opportune time for divination and oracle-seeking.
In this circle, we will discuss the themes of the season, and share any related personal experiences. We will keep things relaxing and nourishing for our dreaming, intuitive mind and lower-energy bodies. We will get cozy by the fire and go on a guided mediation journey to meet our inner Wise One and allow ourselves to dream. We will do some intuitive womb-writing, womb drawing and do oracle readings for each other. We will feast and celebrate this beautiful Great Mystery that is life and honor one another’s beauty and wisdom in the process!
