Here is the recording to the Winter Solstice Ritual teleseminar 2011: Click here for mp3 Recording
I am resending the information below so that you can have the list of what you need to do this ritual.
Please… send me any or all of the writing you do. I welcome the images of your altars as well. KNOW that being witnessed is a vital part of the process… even just a few words. I would also LOVE to post the images and our words in a gorgeous gallery in honor of the Winter Solstice. I would ONLY do so with your consent. Again, anything you share with me will be kept sacred and will not be exposed unless you desire. I would keep the work annonymous in the gallery.
Thank YOU so much for making a very big Dark Dream of mine come true, honoring the Darkness as Sacred in community. Attendance was exceptional and there has been a request for the recording by many. The Darkness has found its way into the Light! and THAT is truly a celebration!
Nadir of the year. Belly of the Dark Goddess. We are about to be KISSED by Her… THIS eve in our ritual with the Darkness… where together we will each create our Winter Solstice altar, partake in dark stories, dance Her dark brilliance in our bodies, allow Her to speak through our pens, and share the wisdom with each other.
Please be prepared….
Our time together is a movement/writing meditation, so you need to be in a room where you will not be disturbed for the duration. The program will last approximately one hour. I will be inviting you to share a small piece of your writing at the end. Please be mindful that for everyone to participate we want to keep our share very short.
Have your altar in the room with you. Be sure to include a candle and a metal or ceramic bowl in which you can burn paper in.
If you need some guidance for creating the altar, click on the link below which will take you to the orginal Winter Solstice page where you can read about creating an altar there.
Have pen & paper ready. Not your journal. Paper that can be torn and pieces burned.
If possible, set speakers up to your computer or phone so you can fully experience the music which will be an important part of the ritual.
If you would like… email me your birth data – date/time/place – so I can send you your astrology chart with the exact transits of Winter Solstice on it. You do not need to know anything about your chart for this event. Think of it as a Mandala of the Self. It represents alllll the forces of nature/archetypes that were active the moment of your birth + the forces of nature at the exact moment of Winter Solstice tonight (early morn for east coast 12:33 a.m. on the 22nd) Place it on your Winter Solstice Altar. Reply to this email with your birth info.
