Returning to the Yin: A Winter Solstice E-Gathering

December 21, 2023
December 21, 2023


Live-stream with Replay

We can work with Yang, creating the visible.
We can also join ourselves with Yin, allowing the invisible to flow through us.

A live-stream Winter Solstice e-gathering to slowly descend into the deep quiet of Void, embracing the seasonality of the Yin, which joins us to nature. This death of sorts also dissolves the consciousness that isolates us from each other and the world. Accompanied by a group I Ching reading to anchor, resource, and deactivate as you sit in and with the watery Yin.

Contrary to what many believe Winter to be, this season is less about transformation, and more about giving up the old mask(s) and allow the reconfiguration to take place through rest. By the potency of surrendering, we allow ourselves to emerge, existing without clutching the masks, we can live more directly with everything, without barriers and filters. And yet, we fear the death of our identities because we do not now what to expect beyond. Winter is the seasonal initiation, the invitation to step through the portal and descend into a protected cradling, into slowness and rest, into the space where we can meet our hidden selves, and usher them through so the old selves can fall away.

What to expect during this live-stream gathering (with replay):

  • Harness the once-a-year potency of this year’s Winter Solstice to hold you in safety as you deeply listen to how you digest emotions/energies, and how to better prioritize a quiet sense of rest and pleasure.
  • Through the Winter ritual of a guided spirit travel into the Lower World (Yin’s domain), experience a visit with and to this primordial energy source.
  • Connect to your hidden self / selves, and invite them to come through, so they can emerge when ready.
  • Engage in the process of deactivating your fears and hesitations around rest, inviting more Yin this Winter Season so that you can experience the regulation and regeneration you need, and so the outworn masks can fall off and stay off.
  • Take part in a mini Winter poetry share, honouring the splendor of the Winter season and Water Element
  • Receive a group I Ching reading that shares what the Yin Season will give opportunity for / bring up for you.
