  • Empress Vintage 1757 Alcatraz Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94703 United States (map)

Winter Solstice Ritual: 12/22/15 7:00-9:00 p.m

Yule & The White Goddess
Join us in sacred community to celebrate the winter solstice in the adorable and quaint Empress garden! We will have a cauldron of fire to honor the return of the light on the darkest night. In the Celtic tradition it is thought that the white goddess gives birth to the sun king on this eve returning warmth and light to earth.

We will learn how to open and close a magical circle, call in the four directions, set our intentions, journey through a guided meditation and culminate the eve with hot tea and oracle cards!
