Join an unforgettable Winter Solstice Ritual. Together we will journey into within to meet the light of our soul. On this darkest eve the sun is reborn, and so we will rebirth ourselves to live in alignment and in harmony.
In deep meditation we will journey to our inner truth and highest good. It is here that we will make 13 wishes for the year to come, according to an old tradition from the mysterious mountains that are the German speaking Alps. You will also receive instructions on how to work with the wishes in the 12 mystical nights that follow, so that these wishes may come true in the next year.
The ritual structure offered for this event comes from the WildWood Witchcraft Tradition and the ritual content flows forth from our Bavarian and Danish ancestors whose traditions we were raised in. The focus point are the Mysteries of the Wild Nights, the English name we have given to what is known as the Rauhnächte.
The winter solstice is a night steeped in ancient tradition and magic. Once upon a time this darkest night was called Night of the Mothers and Feast of the Elves. It is a time to make offerings of warm food and beer to the spirits, the gods and goddesses, and those of the Wild Hunt, so that they may bestow blessings on us for the rest of the year.
The 12 days that precede the winter solstice are known to us as the closing nights, where we make peace with the year gone by and integrate the lessons we have learned. In this time we can also heal ourselves and prep our home and hearth for the days to come.
The 12 days that follow the winter solstice are marked as the difference between the solar and lunar year. Time stands still and the fates become more active in their weaving. During this time we can look into the future of the year 2024. We will share information on how to do this at the end of the ritual.
If you are interested in joining us for the full experience of the Mysteries of the Wild Nights, with worksheets, video lessons and guided audio rituals for each night, you can access it all HERE.
If you would like to receive a free calendar of the Mysteries of the Wild Nights 2023, we will be sending that out to our newsletter subscribers at the beginning of December. You can sign up HERE. We only send out a newsletter twice a month and make sure it is always full of inspiring and practical magic.
We look forward to seeing you at the ritual!
