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 ancestors, and celebrate our divine nature.
With ritual, we calibrate with the cycles within our selves, the seasons, and our prayer for our one wild and precious life.
We will adjust each ceremony based on the season to include dance, meditation, prayer, acupuncture, sound healing, rituals, 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 which 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 10am and go till 10pm.
Join us in remembering and cultivating our connectedness.
The financial contribution is $350.
I am asking for what I need to do this in a good way, and I invite you to do the same if the above does not work for you. I am especially committed to making these ceremonies viable for BIPOC.
Imbolc marks the beginning of the New Year in earth-based calendars. It is all about the inner fire – symbolized by the beginning of Spring, the stirring of seeds under the earth. It has the potential for recalibrating our sense of life. There is tremendous potential for renewal, inspiration and freshness with the returning of Yang.
Let go of the old, break up habitual patterns, and move towards the people and things most nourishing in your life. This is a time of deep inner work, where the seeds of enormous breakthroughs can be sown.
Spring presents us with an amazing opportunity to replenish ourselves. The season itself represents the energy of fertility, newness, and growth, as nature flourishes all around us. Ancient Chinese Tang Dynasty springtime court entertainments involved the recitation of poetry and the playing of new music.
It is a time for gatherings rife with music, play, and poetry about love, newness, and rebirth. Spring equinox represents the rebirth quality of the ongoing relationship between yin and yang. Yang initiates the creation of energy, and yin nourishes it. Bring songs and poems about love, wear green, let your hair down, and bring fresh flowers.

With healthy yang dominating in the late spring and early summer there is a sense one can do anything -multi-task, complete projects, concentrate, invent new ideas, or even re-invent oneself. There is a feeling of great accomplishment and competence.
Come pray your deepest dreams and manifest your path forward with in this beltane fire ceremony.

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.
Winter is a time of rest - an out-breath, a hibernation, and a slowing down.
It is the time to honor and grieve those that have passed (Dia de los Muertos), and times that have vanished. It is the time to let go of all that no longer serves us.

Winter is the time when Big Yin is free to develop, unhampered by yang's effects of doing, being busy, and moving faster. There is a tremendous opportunity for recovery that the winter seasonal cycle offers.
The council is to not squander the winter time 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.
