Seasonal Harmonizing Ceremonies
Seasonal Harmonizing Ceremonies
Prayer is the ritual of aligning our deepest truth with our lives.
We will join together and connect to the source, give gratitude for our many blessings, and celebrate our divine nature.
With ritual, we calibrate with the cycles within ourselves, the seasons, and our prayer for our one wild and precious life.
We will adjust each ceremony based on the season to include offerings, meditation, prayer, sound healing, ritual, medicine song sharing, fire ceremony, nature bathing, embodiment practices, and water blessings as we calibrate with the qi of the time.
Align with Seasonal Qi
Primary to a healthy path is living and acting in harmony with the cycles of nature around us. In Taoist tradition, the leading cause of the dis-ease is forgetting to adjust our conduct with the seasons. So often, in our modern world of artificial lights and technology which subvert our subtle intelligence, we forget to take our cues from nature.
We have an ancestral prayer to live a deeply embodied, earthly existence in harmony with our surroundings. As Star Hawk so eloquently puts it, “We do not live in the unchanging twilight realm of Faery, but in the living, dying, fading, and growing realm of the earth.”
Each ceremony will include a small talk on the seasonal qi which includes philosophy, foods, movement, medicines, timing, and appropriate conduct.
My intention is to create a space that is deeply nourishing and engaging for your body and mind as well as giving practical ways of connecting to the season in your everyday life.
The ceremonies start at 10 am and go on till late.
Join us in remembering and cultivating our connectedness.

Summer Solstice is the zenith of yang energy and the beginning of the end of summer. After the solstice yang begins it’s a decline as yin is birthed as we head towards autumn and the days get shorter.
At summer solstice yang ideally begins to sink down, be anchored, and let yin take over.
The summer is abundant with ripe, juicy, yin filled fruit. We can further accentuate this abundance by literally giving ripe fruit to friends and allies. Gift giving helps to harmonize the season’s yin and yang as well as ancestral energy. We will gather together, wear fancy clothes, give gifts, and celebrate our lives and community.

Autumn is about the out breath of our lives, a turning inward and a time for reflection that comes with slowing down. If yang, at the end of summer, does not yin up it becomes violent, out of control, overly ambitious and dominating.
In this ceremony we will calibrate with yin by surrendering to the flow, harmonizing with nature, and giving thanks for the abundance all around us.

Autumn is the time to let go of that which is no longer serving us, to harvest that which we manifested over the warmer seasons, and to turn our energy inward and towards reflection. Our ceremony will be focused around calibrating with the growing yin.
It is the time to pull inward and gather our qi into ourselves on all levels. It is a time to organize the more scattered and spontaneous patterns of the summer months and harmonize with our inner worlds.

Annual Silent Ceremony
Winter is the time when Big Yin is free to develop, unhampered by yang's effects of doing, being busy, and moving faster.
The council is to not squander the wintertime with activity.
The winter seasonal cycle offers a tremendous opportunity for the recovery of the body, mind, and spirit when we take the time to slow down and dream with intention.
Cultivating our yin over the winter months means we will have enough energy to nourish the burgeoning creativity and bring the ideas, dreams and visions that have been cooking to fruition in the spring.
