Celebrate the turn of another season with a Summer Solstice Cacao Ceremony In This spiritual community gathering we will use mantra, drumming, community sharing and sacred sound to bring in a new powerful season of creative fire energy. Using the powerful laws of vibration and frequency we can uplift and celebrate each other and our own Divine Spark. 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. 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 is in balance with in ourselves we are in harmony with the earth and all of existence.
