Crossing Over to Another Year: A Journey Through the Zodiac
February is a time of cleansing and new beginnings. This is a universal part of humanity in cultures around the world. We have the Chinese New Year, which takes place on the second new moon after the winter Solstice, and in the Celtic tradition, February 1st is the celebration of Imbolc.
This is one of the four main festivals of the year, marking the time to make a bridge between the year that is ending and the year that is about to begin. In Ireland it is the time to celebrate Saint Brigit – who in pre-Christian times was Brigid, Goddess of healing, poetry and childbirth.
In this two-day workshop we will take the opportunity to connect with and review the year that has just passed; to look at what worked and what didn’t, to clarify our intentions and send them forward into the year to come.
In the old Hermetic tradition, the energetic wheel in which we journey year after year is known as the zodiac. The projections onto Earth of the twelve segments of the zodiac are called the Houses.
During this event we will recapitulate our journey through the twelve houses of the Zodiac, the twelve fields of experiences that constitute our life: our bodies, our feelings, our thoughts, our family, our creations, our routines, our connection to others, our unconscious, our philosophy, our career, our relationship to community and our relationship to infinity!
We will learn and practice a series of movements and a specific breathing technique that will help us to quieten our minds, cleanse our emotions, connect to our bodies, open up and dive into our inner-self.
We will tell our stories and free them so that we can make space for the New and bring the best of ourselves into the emerging year.
