Summer Solstice – the longest day light day of the year.
Our ancient ancestors celebrated this day with rituals to honor the bountiful earth and the harvest that would come. Summer is also a time when life becomes full, ripe and rich. A time to pause and assess the abundance of blessings as well as the opportunities for more growth, expansion and Self revelation.
Our Summer Solstice retreat will gather us together in a stunningly beautiful Northern New Mexico retreat – surrounded by volcanoes – to ignite the inner fire of our ‘clear seeing’ and ‘deep listening’ to find peace through the contemplative labyrinth, vistas and expansive sky that surrounds the Mandala Retreat Center.
The Mandala represents wholeness, transformation, integration and balance.
Our Solstice Retreat will incorporate both the voices of the light and the dark of our being.
In the circle of wholeness nothing will be excluded.
All will be contained.
Then seemingly opposing forces can be held in a safe space of transmutation and transformation.
During our retreat we will use the clarity of the stark day light to illuminate anything that might be hiding in the shadows of our daily life. Sacred Callings ask us to envision beyond our present day situations and circumstances. The bright light can reveal the blessings that are present as well as the places that need our attention to heal and clear.
We will also use the magic and mystery of the night vision – our dream time – to access our inner helpers, guides and messengers. These guardians of our deeper Truth can assist us to let go of unconscious fears and blocks that might be stifling our wisdom. Many times what seems to be a formable foe is only a Divine Angel disguised to challenge our assumptions.
This Solstice Retreat is all inclusive. Your registration includes farm to table freshly prepared meals, comfortable accommodations and all retreat activities.
This retreat is limited to 12 participants to allow for maximized attention to your process by Rebecca, your facilitator.
Our group time together will include meditation, sharing and dream work. Alone time will include silence, walking meditations, journaling and light hiking.
We will begin our retreat, June 21, with a labyrinth ceremony.
