12TH ANNUAL RED THREAD SUMMER SOLSTICE CEREMONY

Thursday June 20th 
630 - 930  PM
BY DONATION/PAY WHAT YOU CAN

As the sun reaches its zenith and bathes the world in its radiant glow, we stand at the threshold of a profound transition. The Summer Solstice marks a time of abundant light, of warmth, and of outward expression

At its core, the Summer Solstice represents the peak of light and vitality in the natural world. It heralds the climax of growth, abundance, and energy as the sun reaches its highest point in the sky. This abundance of light is not merely physical; it carries symbolic significance, reflecting themes of expansion, outward expression, and outward focus. It's a time of celebration, joy, and revelry, as communities come together to honor the bounties of the earth and the blessings of life.

However, beneath this exuberant surface lies a deeper rhythm inherent in the cycles of nature. As the Summer Solstice marks the zenith of light, it also signifies the beginning of a subtle shift—a gradual transition from outward expansion to inward reflection. Just as the sun reaches its peak and begins its descent, so too do we start to turn our attention inward, towards introspection, and towards the quieter aspects of our existence.

This transition from light to darkness, from outward to inward, mirrors the broader cycles of life and the seasons. Just as plants and trees gradually prepare for the cooler months ahead by conserving energy and drawing inward, so too can we use the summer solstice as a moment of reflection and preparation. It serves as a reminder to pause, to take stock of our experiences, and to consider what we wish to carry forward as we journey into the second half of the year.

By honouring the Summer Solstice and its symbolism, we can align ourselves with the rhythms of nature and tap into its wisdom. We can use this time to set intentions, to release what no longer serves us, and to cultivate a sense of inner balance and harmony. In doing so, we not only honor the cyclical nature of existence but also nurture our own growth and transformation.

Ultimately, the summer solstice invites us to embrace both the light and the darkness within ourselves, recognizing that each has its place in the wholeness of life. It reminds us that even as we revel in the abundance of summer, there is beauty and wisdom to be found in the quieter, more introspective moments that lie ahead.

For us, as women walking the path of reclamation, this journey from light to darkness holds deep significance. It mirrors the cyclical nature of our own inner landscapes, inviting us to spiral inwards and embark upon the sacred work of self-discovery.

In the darkness, we encounter the shadow aspects of ourselves—the fears, the doubts, the unspoken desires that linger in the depths of our being. Yet, it is here, amidst the shadows, that we find the fertile soil in which our most profound transformations take root.

And so, we come together, bound by the sacred thread that connects us all—a red thread that weaves through the tapestry of our shared experience. As we honor the turning of the wheel and embrace the mysteries of the night, let us remember that it is through our willingness to journey into the darkness that we emerge, reborn and radiant, into the light once more.

Jamie's approach to teaching is refreshing.  She doesn't tell you how to feel or what to think - she guides you to simply be curious about.  I found her style to be a great fit for me and she helped me to 'be real' with myself.  She creates a safe environment and makes her students feel comfortable right from day 1. I could not be more grateful.

Each Sunday I went home with a new out look on life and my life began to change. I've never felt so safe, so supported or so loved as I did each weekend at training. It was by far the best thing I have ever done.
