Solstices are ideal times to recalibrate and rebalance.  The word “solstice” comes from “sol” - the sun, and “sistere” - to stand still.  In this workshop, we’ll take time out of our busy schedules to be still like the sun, and soak up its golden magick.  We’ll learn ways to carry the sun with us and draw upon its power whenever we need it, as well as other methods for increasing our yang.  The intention for the class is to recharge ourselves with bold and solar energy, and to welcome the beginning of summer.  Our time together will be filled with spellcrafting, meditation, and, of course, feasting!

Please bring:

-A bit of food or drink to share

-Any altar objects you like.  These can be decorative (Summery decor of any kind is welcome), and/or personal objects which you’d like to have charged

-A short candle and holder (votive or short pillar candle, NOT a tall taper)

-A cushion, pillow, or fabric, as we will be sitting on the floor (chairs will be available for those who need).

Note-taking is welcome.  This workshop is open to men and women, novices and advanced practitioners alike.
