This is a past event
2022 Litha / Summer Solstice
Celebration & POTLUCK
Saturday, June 18th, 2022
Recharge your “SOUL-her” batteries
with SOLAR power!
Presented by Priestesses in Training: Sunshine, Sablewolf, Melanie, with Lea & Amalya
1) OUR THEME:
As we move into the summer, we honor Litha, the Summer Solstice! Summer Solstice is the day of longest daylight when the sun appears to "stand still" bathing us in an abundance of solar energy.
This gives us some brilliant symbols to play with... We are all familiar with the power of the sun's rays to charge solar cell batteries to illumine our outdoor lights, right? Well, applying this symbology to ourselves, let's consider what power sources can replenish our inner light, and recharge our "soul-her" batteries!
During these challenging times, we have all likely been drained or depleted of our energies in some form–-be that as tired care-givers, too much isolation, or conversely--too much overwhelm jumping back into a faster pace. Where have your energies been depleted? What do you need to be recharged?
On this longest day of the year, we invite the symbol of the solar power of the Sun to re-energize and invigorate us with celebration, ceremony and tapping into our own inner resources for renewal.
Join us as we call upon the sun at its yearly zenith as a symbol of the unlimited energy available to recharge our inner batteries.
2) CRAFT: WHAT WE WILL BE DOING:
We will be crafting SOLAR MANDALAS as a tool to remind us to bask in the light and recharge our "SOUL-her" batteries!
3) REGARDING FOOD: We will be having a POTLUCK! Please bring a main dish or side salad to share with all.
4) THINGS TO EXPECT: sharing lore, meditation, crafting, ceremony, sisterhood and being recharged!
5) WEAR & BRING: Sun Colors and sunscreen! Bring: Hat, sunglasses, and potluck dish.
6) TIME: 1:45 - 7:00 pm. Please arrive between 1:30-1:45 to give yourself enough time to settle in and take pictures! Circle will start at 2:00, and potluck will start at 5:45 ish! This is a progressive event, please be on time. Also, Gate closes at 2:30, see (9) below.

Your RSVP is taken very seriously. These events mean alot to us and we devote significant time, energy and money to producing these high quality and meaningful gatherings eight times a year. Unfortunately, due to the rising number of people who RSVP "yes" and then don't show, we have been overbuying supplies and not able to cover our costs. "No shows" are very hard on us, not only financially, but emotionally and energetically as well. If you cannot come after you have rsvp'd "yes", then please simply change your rsvp to "NO" as soon as possible. Also, if you are bringing a guest, please let us know their names too! Thank you for honoring your commitment with integrity, your Goddess Mamas really appreciate it.
