June 19-23 2017
When we gather for SouLodge Medicine Gathering in June, it will be the time of the Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer/Litha to the Celts. It is traditionally a time of honoring the peak of the fertile season with feasting, fires and ritual.The workshop offerings and our time moving around
the Medicine Wheel reflect the season and it’s qualities.
Summer Solstice is our time for honoring the warmth of community, making music,
creating with our hands, and this year, honoring the energies of the Full Moon.
The Full Moon phase calls upon us to celebrate all that is growing into full potential within and around us.
Registration Opened September 12…
and SOLD OUT the same day!
We gather to connect, to celebrate, to honor and share the medicine.
In the wild, we have the opportunity to quiet the doing, and bring balance with our being.
We gather to learn new skills and make with our hands, while practicing self-discipline in claiming restorative quiet time. This is very different from our normal day-to-day as mothers, sisters, daughters and partners.
The forested desert and it’s creatures show up in mysterious places, at beautiful times: Golden Eagle soars over the circle, Great Horned Owl ushers in the dusk hour with their silent flight, Snake slithers across the path to remind us to heighten our extrasensory perception, Frog comes to bring the steady beat of rain, Skunk visits sharing messages of calling in what is desired and repelling the rest.
We collect the medicine to carry with us on our Magician’s journey, knowing that everything in our toolkits will be available when we need them.
We sleep outside to connect with the feminine energies of the Moon and the dark night, inviting dreams to visit and show us what is swimming in our depths.
We gather with sisters like us, who are seeking sanctuary in feminine community, to know who she is as a radiant woman, to rebuild trust in her relationship to the wild.
We circle under the stars by the light of the fire to replenish ourselves and bring hope to the Earth.
We are the mediators between nature and the modern world.
