Join me for this magical, mystical connection and gatheringto set the tone for Summer 2021

Poetry & Music

 Interactive Sessions


Qigong Movement

Release and let go of emotions that do not serve us such as anxiety, heartache, and shock.   

In Qigong, Summer is the season of the Heart, and the animal is the Red or Fire Phoenix. The Summer Solstice is a time to embrace the virtuous qualities of the heart – order, peace, joy, and tranquility as Summer returns to the Northern Hemisphere.

Participants will individually and in a safe group setting, mindfully observe their relationship with the Summer Solstice. 

This sacred time represents the rising and reappearance of the light and heat of the sun for the longest period of daylight hours. The Latin word, sol means sun and sistere means to stand still, so it is the day the sun ascends to its highest peak and appears to stand still.

4:00pm - 6:30pm PT/

7:00pm - 9:30pm ET

Introducing yourself to the group briefly: why you chose to do this workshop and what you hope to gain from it.


Exploring your relationship with the Summer Solstice (in the large and small groups).

To prepare, I invite you create a quiet space where you can focus on your own reflections on the Summer Solstice and the discussions we will have as a group and in pairs. I will also lead you through a brief guided meditation, so you may wish to have a yoga mat and or cushions, blanket and pillow for your comfort. Feel free to bring a journal or notebook and perhaps have some water or herbal tea for the time we are together too.

– As this online interactive workshop is on Zoom, your participation via video and audio will be required to create a sense of safety and mutual respect for everyone as we connect in this virtual space.

– The workshop will also be recorded in the main room for the practices I will be guiding, but the breakout rooms will not be recorded.

 *If you are new to Zoom and would like help to set it up to join this workshop, please email me directly no later than Monday, June 21 at noon PT/ 3:00pm ET so I can send you information and assist if necessary.

New to video workshops?

1. You will need to turn on your video and audio to join the call.
2. Please mute when you are not speaking to keep audio feedback to a minimum (the facilitators will also mute you if you forget).
3. If you would like to acknowledge someone speaking, you are welcome to nod, shake your head, give a thumbs up (or down), wave or other gesture – ideally respectful :-D.
4. Depending on the number of participants, we will experiment with having each person un-mute themselves to speak.
5. You are welcome to use the chat feature to share info as necessary, but please use it sparingly as it can be distracting.
6. Please find a quiet place with minimal distractions to Zoom from if possible.
7. Using headphones can also be helpful to minimize ambient sounds and noise.

8. In respect for the group, please have phones on silent or off.
