winter solstice

retreat

At this Winter Solstice Retreat we will be honoring the darkest day of the year. 

Darkness invites us to slow down, go inward, adjusting and reflecting - This is exactly what we will be doing together for 4 days supported by our elements : Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Spirit.
We will be sitting in various ceremonies together (indoor and outdoor) and work with 2 plant medicines: Grandfather medicin from Peru and Ceremonial Cacao from Guatemala.

The retreat is facilitated by Anna Lundgaard & Jesper Westmark
