Summer Solstice Salutations

Updated: Jun 15

The longest day and shortest night, a time to reflect on how you have grown and blossomed since the winter solstice 6 months ago. Solstice translates as stopping or being still. Be still and check in with your soul, your dreams, your passions and make a plan for the next 6 months ahead.

On this day CELEBRATE life! Celebrate abundance, celebrate love, celebrate connections, celebrate dreams and all you are. Get outside today, even if it is in the pouring rain, look up and smile. Thank you Nature, thank you Pachamama, thank you all for this moment.
