A 3 hour immersion in deep contemplation and healing soulful rest

Celebrate the longest nights and return of the sun
Enjoy time for contemplation, deep soulful restoration

Soothe your body and mind with restorative yoga, reiki, and warming soup
Open to your heart and self healing with the sounds of mantra + the gong

Leave this session rested, restored and open to the possibilities of the return of the light, as the seasonal wheel turns another spoke.


This session is carefully created to help you rest, reflect, accept and be in the stillness and clarity of the WINTER SOLSTICE for your personal healing - connected deeply to nature and You.

A Seasonal Session, heralding a shift in energy flow - at Winter the shift is the point of full inward turning, the last moments of decline before the cycles of building recommence.

Connect with the declining energies of Winter as we take our yearly pilgrimage within.  Tune in to your inner rhythms and the seasonal cycles of nature, countering some of the impact of our modern life that is so removed from nature.

The Winter Solstice is the embodiment of stillness.
The perfect time to rest, rest and rest some more.
To nourish, soothe and and be nurtured by the simple clear winter energies.

This is your time to assess, reflect and align before you commit your energies and resources to the next phase. This gives you the opportunity to redirect if you need, to know that you are heading in a direction that serves you, to release what is done with, all while you receive nourishment  and direction from deep within your own being.

REST. Turn within.
Endings making room for new beginnings.

How will we do this??

Through these transformative techniques:

RESTORATIVE YOGA ::: rest your body and allow your energy to settle, align with the cool crisp clear energies of winter. Accept what is, release what is gone, make space for clarity, focus and new vision.

PRANAYAMA + CONTEMPLATION ::: breathe the depth of Winters energies, listen to the sound of the sacred as it moves through you.

Enter into your depths with the support of winter;  see with grace, deep appreciation and compassion to support yourself in experiencing the stillness of your soul through connected conscious breath.

CHANTING MEDITATION :::  clear away the dead wood, sing over the bones of what brings your soul truly alive. Be centred and awake, open to self love and deep soulful self acceptance.

Reiki + Gong HEALING :::  allow yourself to be soothed and balanced. Rest and Be with your soul.

All carefully woven together to create an evenning experience that opens you in body, heart, mind and soul - creating alignment and self healing throughout.

Prepare your 'inner ground' for positive growth and next steps that come from the yearnings of your soul, rather than the trappings of your mind, for deeper fulfillment and nourishment in life.

Take affirmative action in building a life that answers and expresses the call of your inner voice - your sovereign self, your gentle and absolute right to be you, in a way that is yours.

This session is time & space for the life that lies within you, for the breath that lies waiting to connect you more deeply with you. Honouring your inner world, nurturing your outer world. Connecting to your place in Our world.


Seasonal Sessions are half day workshops that held at the Solstices and/or Equinoxes, to help you navigate your year from a heart and soul centred place.

They offer a pause from your busy modern life, and an opportunity to check in with your current direction.

This time together is the perfect antidote to overwhelm, burnout, and our modern disconnection from nature.

Experience a gentle nurturing way to come home to yourself, to rest in your essence and restore your autonomy.
