Winter Solstice Nourishment Ritual - Online
Oh Winter Solstice — the midpoint of the year & the darkest stroke of our orbit.
Welcoming you into the warm, loving & candlelit online space for this Solstice ritual — where together we melt into restful review, celebration, wellness-tending & connection.
We begin with greeting those around us through the chat box, receiving an earthly overview of the energies, and setting intention into our candles & space.
This ignites the portal of guided meditation, art-making, journalling & tarot. Curated prompts are offered alongside the option to tend through your own rhythm.
Balancing our practice, we rise into embodiment, movement, and consent-led sharing, before sinking into an optional online tea time, sharing conversation while we sip & snack. Interactive art-making activities will also be offered to support social connection.
We close with a sense of loving warmth, and presence to the sacred offerings of Winter.
On this evening of the Sun’s darkest descent, and the rebirth of the divine light, let us dwell in deep nourishment — connecting to our inner hearth, and stoking the fireplace of community.
Please set up in a quiet or gentle room with:
- journal and/or visual diary
- pen or writing tool of choice
- art materials of any kind
- tea & snacks of your desire
- cozy supports such as blankets, cushions & candles
- optional yoga mat or space to lay down
- optional tarot & oracle cards
- anything else of support in your ritual & wellness-tending practices
I will write all prompts into the chat box to support in the guided experiences, however most of the session will be through verbal facilitation.
I’m an LGBTQIA+ therapist with a deep relationship with the esoteric.
As a human, I believe in connecting in reciprocity with the natural and “super-natural” for nourishment, healing & fulfilment.
As a facilitator, this shows up as a deep responsibility to honour the vastness & interconnectedness of life.
My offerings have thus emerged from my passion for self-intimacy, my sensitivity to the unseen, and my drive to co-create justice & balance for all beings and the planet.
It is my vision that in embracing & nourishing our natural multiplicity, we can each embody our most alive & aligned lives — in turn creating collective transformation, together.
I would like to acknowledge that astrology, art-making, embodiment, ritual & "therapeutic practices" are each woven through all eras & cultures, including on the lands in which I live. They are are sacred practices in which are adapted into the present with reverence, relationship & care.
I will be facilitating this ritual on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri people, where I pay my respects to the traditional & ongoing custodians of Country, and offer my deep gratitude for our lives lived on this land. Sovereignty is not ceded and treaty has not been made.
