Winter Solstice – Breathe, Restore, Sound

The energy of winter is that of going within. It’s the fruitful darkness and silence out of which our soul’s yearnings and new inspirations can eventually emerge.  As we consciously link our awareness to nature’s cycles, our understanding of our own personal growth cycles begin to deepen. 

In Latin, solstice is made of two words: sol– meaning “the sun” and sistere meaning “to make stand.” Winter Solstice is one the most powerful points of the year as the axis of the Earth pauses, shifts and moves in the opposite direction. For three days around the solstice points we experience the power of the standstill point and the shift of direction. The sun standing still is a powerful metaphor for the energy available to us at the Winter Solstice to change the direction of our lives with intention and build on this energy as we enter into the new year. After experiencing the longest night and darkest day, the nights grow shorter and the days grow brighter until the Summer Solstice.

Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun’s strength builds, and days grow longer. Its a beautiful time to rest and reflect. So join us for a sweet sweet class where you can take off your life and rest a while.
