About this event

There are ancient rhythms that have been celebrated for many moons to honor the changes of the seasons, the shifts here on earth and within ourselves. These rhythms and rituals have been tended to for so many generations, but unfortunately so much has been lost in our modern society.

Many of us feel that yearning - a deep pull within us to connect to a cycle that is attuned to the wisdom of the seasons, but we might not have all of the resources to know where to begin.

The wisdom of the seasons of fall and winter are so misunderstood, pushed away and shunned in our culture and modern world. When the wheel of the year turns after the longest day of the year at Summer Solstice, we are invited into a dance and be in communion with the power of night, of release and celebration of what has been harvested.

In this class we’ll talk about the stories and legends around the earth calendar holiday known as Winter Solstice - the longest night or Yule in Celtic Earth Wisdom traditions (and this holiday’s connection to all of the winter festivals and celebrations). We’ll also have a discussion about the shifting seasons and how they have an impact on your life. There are practices, rituals, foods and so much more to help us attune to the magic found in these darker and colder months. It’s the wisdom we yearn for and need now more than ever. When we attune to the cycles and seasons we recalibrate our lives back to the original rhythm. One that is not rooted in distortion.

This offering will be part discussion, and part experiential through the offering of a deep rest practice with ritual and reflection. Bring a journal and pen or something to write with.

Crystal Marie Higgins is a lineaged Initiated Priestess in Celtic traditions, an Initiated Witch, as well as a Yoga Teacher, a Folk Herbalist and an Ethical Marketer. She has been in devotion to earth wisdom, the cycles of the moon and the seasons since 2012. She loves to create, to cook and share that magic with others!
