Can you believe we're heading into autumn already? I absolutely love this time of year more than any other. The Earth is so wonderfully reflecting at us the opportunity to start to let go of experiences and expectations, gently bringing us back full circle to ourselves. Within the Wiccan tradition this is the time of the Crone. As this season brings change, and eventually decay whilst we move into the stillness of winter, the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess invites us to release all that we have held onto, especially our limiting beliefs, and encourages us to connect back to the wise woman that resides within each of us.
The Autumn Equinox is a time when the sun enters Libra, bringing with it an energetic balance and an invitation to integrate the lessons and experience of the previous season, and the day and night are of equal length - a perfectly mirrored display of balance by our unique solar system. Any time of the year provides a powerful time for women to come together as a community but there is something magical about celebrating the seasons together. I believe this is an archetype that we connect to within the collective consciousness - when we come together we so deeply resonate and remember on a cellular level times of old when we gathered before.
During our Autumn Equinox Celebration I will be inviting you to experience the following:
An opportunity to cultivate a sense of gratitude and thanksgiving for this sacred celebration through the practice of Vinyasa Flow Yoga, then later an opportunity for reflection and introspection with the practice of Yin & Restorative Yoga.
Ritual & Ceremony
A very simple but beautiful ceremony to celebrate the equinox and remind ourselves of the power of ritual and entering into the circle with women.
Herbal Tea Making
Traditionally herbs were dried and stored at this time of year so to honour the herbal element we will be making our own herbal tea blends in re-useable tea bags for you to take home with you.
Myth and archetype are powerful drivers within the collective consciousness of all of humanity but as women there are many, MANY examples we can connect and relate to through storytelling. I will be sharing a couple of stories as we sit making our herbal tea bags in order to prompt contemplative discussion.
So, as you can see, this is going to be a deliciously heart warming morning! If this is speaking to your very bones then go ahead and contact me to get yourself a spot. The cost is £45 and I am limiting the number of spaces to an intimate 10. A few have been snapped up already so don't delay...
I can't tell you how much my spirit is looking forward to this!
Oodles of love
