Winter Solstice Fireside Retreat
Welcome Sacred Space, Wednesday, December 21, 7-8:45pm est, live on-line
Feeling frazzled or overwhelmed this time of year? Longing for a quiet sacred space?
Join us Wednesday, December 21, 2022, 7-8:45pm est – for a live online retreat: Cultivate Sacred Space
The retreat will be hosted by Jennifer Schelter.
We invite you to:
- Reconnect with what is most life-giving and sacred to you
- Attune to the peace and grace that exists, even when we are burned out or anxious
- Cultivate ease and sacredness with care and intention
We have things in our lives that we hold sacred — nature, experiences, values, rituals, relationships and seasons of life. We treasure what enhances us with love, harmony and wholeness. Sacredness is all around us, yet so much can be obscured and veiled without our loving attention and care.
We invite you to treasure the sacred experience of your life — to feed and nurture that which is most precious to you in this season of darkness and coming light.
What is life-giving and sacred to you? Are you taking it for granted? Can you deepen your relationship to nurture and protect what is sacred to you?
We will share rituals: a candle lighting, guided meditation, a few gentle stretches, poetry, optional journal prompts for inspiration & letting go to acknowledge the sacred.
The winter solstice marks a spiritual transitional moment: The darkest day of the year, and our turn towards the light of Spring. Holidays and rituals are celebrated with candles, themes of letting go, renewal of the earth and our next seasons birth.
*This is not a yoga class but includes stretches you can do in a chair.
“Even in the darkest hours,
even in the longest nights,
the spark of life persists.
Laying dormant, waiting, ready to return
when the time is right.
The darkness will leave us now, as the sun begins its journey home.”
