Yesterday was the longest day of the year and the first day of summer (all depending on where in the world you live.) “The summer stolstice is a festival of light, an energy resurgence of the self, and a stepping into a greater awareness of one’s power in community and service.” Shaman Durek “Shamanically, it’s an awakening of deeper purpose [and] of your relationship to all things.”
There are many rituals to mark the summer stolstice. Here are just a few:
Give thanks for the sun and the life it supports.
Meditate and self-reflect. Think about fire and what’s burning inside of you that makes you feel powerful and alive.
Connect with your community.
Connect with your creativity.
Play! Be spontaneous and celebrate!
Enjoy your summer!
