The beginning of each season is marked by a Solstice or Equinox - the point during the Earth's orbit around the sun in which it is at its least (Equinox) or greatest (Solstice) distance from the celestial equator.
On the Summer Solstice we mark the longest day of the year above the equator and the point in which the sun starts rising earlier and setting later.
"Solstice" comes from the Latin solsitium, or "sun stands still" named for the appearance of the sun on this first day of summer that appears to stand still reaching its highest point in the sky.
Ancient cultures around the world have long observed the Summer Solstice with festivals and celebrations honoring the change of seasons and shifting their postures and practices to reflect the seasonal invitation.
In Summer we are invited to embrace the way of the Visionary as we embrace wisdom and discernment aligning our actions with our true nature. It is a time to swim into the deep allowing projects and relationships to unfold to their full potential. That which was budding in Spring is coming to full bloom in Summer.
In honor of this seasonal shift, we are hosting a Member Soiree, to celebrate the community that has been cultivated by our Saffrons.
Together, we will experience seasonal dishes & refreshments prepared by Chef Lan, to deepen our brain - gut connection with the natural offerings during this time of year.
Through the gentle guidance of Cristin Smith, Founder & Spiritual Director, we will embrace the luxurious growth of Summer - bringing acknowledgment through reflection and expression to our individual experiences creating space to show up this Summer speaking and acting on our personal truth.
