Winter Solstice Mini-Retreat: Self-care for Busy Times
Are you needing a soft space to land, and nurture your tender heart, during the upheaval of current events?
Are you feeling pulled outward as you look ahead to the Holiday crush of endless activity, when you really want to just curl up for awhile?
Join this special pause for self-care this December, in honor of the deepest, most introspective time of year.
Come settle into these three half-hour mini-retreats,
December 13th, 20th and 29th.
As the seasons turn toward the deepest hour of the longest night, and we are called to settle into a slower pace:
- Are YOU being pulled outward by the holiday crush of endless activity?
Is all this activity too much for you to really enjoy - especially at this time of year which calls for rest, reflection and renewal?
Are you craving respite, retreat and some quiet time
so you can find your center again?
Come spend 3 quiet interludes during the turning of the year focusing on your deepest desires and soul's whispers. Settle yourself and breathe a welcome sigh of relief as you release tension and connect with the essence of the season - a time for giving to yourself as well as others, and nourishing that generous spirit within you!
While so much activity is calling you this season with family, gifts and get-togethers, give yourself this gift of connection, reflection, presence, relaxation and peace.
This is the time of year for slowing our pace, yet the holiday season pulls us in the opposite direction!
That's why I designed these three calls, to help you take time at the end of the seasonal year, for a gentle review of the year that has gone by, a well-deserved rest during the deepest night of solstice, and, finally, a blessing for the year to come.
We will align our three sessions with the phases of the moon and the sun, as they both draw to a close and begin their cycles again into the new year.
Each year, the cycle of the sun ends with the longest night on Winter Solstice, before the days begin to grow longer again. The moon's light will be ebbing also, as we take our first retreat in early December. This darkness is the optimal time to slow down, feel our own sacred essence, and hear our own inner messages.
This is an optimal time to release outer distractions and turn inward for some moments of Just Being. That is what these cycles invite us to do… to balance our busy lives with a time just to pause.
I've created the structure, with full permission for you to come settle into our circle and let your cares go for a little while - so I hope you'll jump on board and join me for some personal time during this super busy month!
You are invited to take a “mini-retreat” before, during and after the longest night of the year:
- First, to take a compassionate review of your year on Dec 13,
- Then to just let go and appreciate your very breath and being, in gratitude and sacred space, on Dec 20,
- Finally to bless the coming year with a loving intention on Dec 29.
These calls will be simple and refreshing.
Here’s what you will receive:
- Guided visualizations,
- Simple creative activities,
- Ideas for personal rituals and selfcare to use
when you don’t have a lot of time!
- Permission to lie on the floor and do nothing, if that is what you need most! You can always catch up with the activities later.
"This whole holiday thing has been intense with my family. Coming to your Solstice calls has really helped me clarify some things. When I slow down and let my feelings emerge, it becomes very clear! I realize I really need to get back to selfcare. Sometimes just hearing the words is useful...'Letting go of what doesn't serve you' really helped me."
For women of all ages…these calls help you align with the cycles of the moon and seasons, to connect with your inner wisdom and the rhythms of nature that offer balance to your life.
Remember to bless yourself this season, too, and give yourself this gift of personal renewal!
Only $30 for the entire month. Gift yourself with these
mini-breaks at this sacred season.
$3 from each attendee will be gifted to ongoing support of
Honor the Earth, Winona LaDuke's initiative to
"...sustain and grow our efforts to build a just, green economy in Native communities.

We are up against some of the largest energy corporations and lobby groups in the world and we need your help to make real change!"
"Power is in the earth - it is in your relationship to the earth."
