During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the winter solstice serves as a reminder of our connection to Earth’s rhythms. Marking the shortest day and longest night of the year, the solstice occurs when the earth’s axis is tilted furthest away from the sun. Derived from two Latin words, ‘sol’ which means ‘sun’ and ‘sistere’ which means ‘to stand still’.
The solstice is a time to pause and reflect. Inspired by the various ancient traditions practiced to honor this earth cycle, we’ve curated a candle lit sound bath paired with nourishing restorative yoga and essential oils of the grandmother trees of the forest (cedar spruce pine), followed by warming elixirs, an ayurvedic tea bar, tarot readings, and a few other delightful solstice activities in the zen den post class.
