The summer solstice is upon us in the northern hemisphere! It’s time to celebrate the year’s longest day and all of the gifts that the season provides. I work closely with the energies of nature and the seasons so this session is how you can tap into and experience the wonderful gifts of the Summer Solstice. This session is done by zoom and you will also have access to a recorded version. We begin with a Gong Bath under the trees in Scania’s wood, followed by a fire to celebrate the sun. I invite you to sit with me, bang your drums, sing or sit in silence with me around the fire. All brought to you via zoom
The Day of Maximum Energy
We are constantly navigating the polarity of Energy and explaining it in Yin and Yang energies makes sense. The Summer Solstice is the maximum Yang day of the year!
Yin is the energy of passivity, restfulness, relaxation, sleep, cold, and darkness. Yang, on the other hand, is the energy of activity, wakefulness, heat, and light. Everything in nature is in constant flux between Yin and Yang. As you can imagine, the night is a time when Yin energy is strong, and daytime is the domain of Yang energy.
When humans are in balance, we also experience Yin and Yang channeling through us in a healthy way. Think about a time when you listened to a friend without speaking. Listening is a very “Yin” activity since you are open to receiving. Speaking and telling others your own opinion is an example of experiencing “Yang” energy. Often, Yang is associated with “male” and Yin is associated with “female.” However, both male identifying and females identifying people contain Yin and Yang energies, and the relative strength of each is really dependant on the individual. Therefore, it’s important to be in touch with your own Yin and Yang energies, as well as to be receptive to others’ rather than make assumptions based on preconceived notions regarding their appearance. Also, like the seasons, each individual is constantly changing in their relationship to Yin and Yang.
When it comes to the seasons, the Summer is the time of Yang. Sunshine, long days, and hot weather all reflect that Yang energy that is vibrant and full. Within the months of summer, the Summer Solstice is the day of “maximum Yang”. It is a time when the world is experiencing the fullest expression of nature’s Yang energy.
We take on energies around us so stepping out is vital to our energy source, topping it up. This day of super energy seeks us to engage in the world and celebrate life, so join me virtually in the woods for a Gong Bath followed by a fire, where we can connect to our heart energy and the natural world. The Sun embodies fire and Yang energy at its fullest! Summer Solstice is a celebration for all living things on Earth, we are nature. It is a time for love, passion and joy, spending time with yourself and others (via zoom) allows the fire element to flourish, bringing loving joy to all parts of your being.
Summer Solstice is Celebrated by nearly every society
Unlike many other holidays, the Summer Solstice is celebrated by nearly every society that experiences a summer. The Summer Solstice isn’t based on historical myths or ideological beliefs. Rather, it is simply a fact of nature that the earth rotates on its semi-diagonal axis, which creates a longest day, a shortest day, and every day in between.
Most cultures that experience a Summer Solstice recognize the importance of embracing its gifts. In most cases, this is done in the same way we described above: Coming together and celebrating. Often, families and communities build fires, dance, and cook a feast.
Whether you’re in a remote town in Sweden, on the shores of Greece, or in Stonehenge in England, or in your spare room on zoom! Lets experience connection with our Summer Solstice Gathering
