Celebrate Summer Solstice!

How will you celebrate the longest day?

“The Summer Solstice is an astronomical event caused by Earth's tilt on its axis and its motion in orbit around the sun. It's a celebration of the return to the light. This is the longest day of the year and it holds powerful potential for all of us. Now is the time to recommit to your intentions, to re-evaluate, and reconnect with nature. Solstice is a natural way to reconnect with life's divine plan. To spend time in reflection on your year thus far, reconnecting to your purpose, and rekindling your self-care practice as you look toward the second half of 2019.”

-Dianne Bondy

Here are some ideas of ways to celebrate in community around NYC: 

My teacher Hari and her midtown Kundalini studio offering a ton of events Friday: http://www.harinyc.com/workshops-events/summer-solstice-2019

My teacher Emily is co-leading this event on Friday night at Third Root Community Health Center in Ditmas Park: https://thirdroot.org/events/event/

My Friend and colleague Elyce is offering a workshop Saturday in Park Slope:  http://www.elycesemenec.com/workshops

Let me know what your wishes are as far as rituals and celebrations. I hope to begin offering some seasonal workshops soon, and want to co-create with my community. That’s you!!! This weekend I’ll be back at Omega learning how to navigate the digital world as a wellness professional.

Eve and Ashley, thanks for teaching on Saturday. 

I’ll leave you with this blessing, a song written by Mike Heron of Scotland’s Incredible String Band, which we sing at the end of our Kundalini Yoga and Meditation classes worldwide. 

May the long time sun shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on
