An invitation to join us for the second of our seasonal self pleasure afternoons.
We are at the height of the year, the sun is highest in the sky and days are longest.
In the Taoist understanding of the year, since the winter solstice energy has been rising and expanding to this pinnacle on 20th June 2020 – the summer solstice. On this day we will be at a turning point, like at the top of the breath, a pause, a moment of stillness.
In the last few weeks we have entered the time of the fire element, the substance for transformation, flowers are becoming seeds and fruits are forming. Fire is the element of the heart, the place of our spirit.
For millennia humans have marked and celebrated this day. In the northern hemisphere the crops are all sown, the flowers are in full bloom, the harvest is yet to come.
In South America, Inti Raymi honours the god Inti (the Sun) and is held at our summer solstice and their winter solstice. In the time of the Inca it was the most important festival of the year and is still celebrated today, with music, dancing and sharing of food.
In merry old England of the 16th century there was the Chester Midsummer Watch Parade where giants, unicorns, camels and 16 naked boys were part of the parade!
Some practical information
Cost: You will see we have 3 ticket prices for this event. It’s a new thing for us. We feel our own energy and excitement to offer this ritual, it’s so important right now to raise our vibration and to lift our souls. Yet we know, for some, this may be a financially challenging time and so we’ve created a sliding scale where you may pay what feels right.
How to prepare for the ritual
- Prepare your space, making it warm and comfortable with a sumptuous nest and beautiful altar. Bring something to your altar that represents your heart, its longing, its deepest desires, its celebration of love…….
- Bring fire, either by candles or lighting a fire.
- Bring oil, lube, coconut oil – whatever is your preference.
- Dress up for your one true love, the one that will never leave you, the one that loves you the most.
A note on how this will work on zoom
We will start all together on zoom. Saying hello, setting our intentions.
During the ritual itself you will have a choice to turn off your video and sound as and when you wish (like we would with a blindfold).
If it’s possible, have your device connected to a speaker as we will be playing music. If you want more privacy (in your home) maybe headphones will work better.
We will finish the ritual all back together on zoom, to hear from everyone, as we would in a normal workshop.
