The Winter Solstice marks a time of shadow, deep rest, and silent contemplation, providing ourselves with the medicine that only the stillness of body, heart, mind, and soul can provide us. Nature’s renewal is slowly building deep at the roots. Waiting for the awakening.
This day, December 21st, 2021, welcomes us with the longest night of the year and the shortest day. We honor it’s passing by holding vigil through the night, stamping out the hearth fires and in deep rooted ritual re-lighting them! Giving thanks for all that is here in the deep place of darkness and the return of the warmth of the hearth fire and the sun. Taking this opportunity to release the past years Hucha [WHO-cha], (Quechuan for dense energy), and greeting the Sami [SAHM-ee], (Quechuan for refined energy), of dawns light, with renewed Strength and Joy.
