About The Event
Join Aureliaslight in a sacred sound and cacao ceremony honoring the Summer Solstice. The Summer Solstice or Litha Celebrates the Sun (Sol) it aligns with the element Fire! Belonging to the element Fire, the Heart Official is associated with warmth, laughter and enthusiasm. Drumming, Movement, Mantra and Cacao will be used to connect to our fire and warmth and sacred sound will lead us into the deep within.
Just as the summer season, associated with the Fire element, brings blossoming and maturing - the flowering of all the seeds planted in the spring - love is the blossoming of a human being. It is indeed who we are in full "bloom." Nowhere is such love felt more deeply than the Heart. Love is the current that connects us to each other as one, reaching the furthest corners of the kingdom of the body/mind/spirit with each heartbeat. To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven. The Summer Solstice marks the longest period of daylight north of the equator, while south of the equator it is the longest period of darkness.
In ancient times the summer solstice or midsummer was the time in which the Sun god Sol who has reached his greatest strength was sacrificed to the Great Mother so as to begin his journey back into the darkness to the underworld. Fire is used ceremonially to symbolize the great strength and masculine power within us. As we hold both the aspects of the divine masculine and feminine this solstice helps us to honor the masculine power within, action, outward movement, sheer force and will. When the masculine and feminine are in balance within ourselves we are in harmony with the earth, nature and all of existence.
