When I left my work as a Presbyterian pastor two years ago, I was able to observe the Christmas season with fresh eyes, taking a much-needed pause from the excessive demands of the season. In stepping away from the performativity of religious life, I observed more clearly the ways in which women are often drawn into unsustainable patterns of servanthood, people-pleasing and denial of our own deep spiritual needs, as we curate a season of meaning for others.
As I re-claim this season in my own life and cultivate more intentional boundaries, I am finding deeper peace in the ancient practices and distinctly female-centered elements of the season. In sharing this space with others, my hope is to inspire a deeper awareness of the inner flame of the feminine sacred, which can guide us into a more sustainable season of healing and wholeness.
If you are looking for a community of seekers grounded in self-reflective spirituality, join me for this two-part women’s wholeness retreat, held on the Nordic celebration of Santa Lucia (Dec 13th) and the night of the Winter Solstice (Dec 20th).
Together we will:
Explore the ancient tradition of the “lighter bearer” and the indigenous wisdom of fire tending
Share our griefs and joy, shadows and light, as we honor the reciprocal nature of the solstice
Re-define our expectations for this sacred season with refreshed intentions and ritual practice
I look forward to journeying with you on this candle-lit path of depth, honesty, and connection as the season unfolds!
