With Christine DeCristofaro and Rosalyn White
The new solar year or solstice is when the Earth begins her to tilt back toward the Sun, signifying the completion of another annual cycle before the emergence of spring. For thousands of years the Winter Solstice has been celebrated around the world—acknowledging the shortest day of the year as a return to light or a return to innocence: a rebirth along our life’s journey.
Come to the redwoods during this winter season to turn inward and self-reflect. Use this time at the end of the year to release anything that feels complete and make space for what we’d like to call in. This weekend will include yoga, meditation, rest, and a release ceremony.
