Dance to Freedom Solstice Ceremony and Celebration
Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 3:00 PM - Friday, December 23, 2011 at 12:00 PM (PST)
Simi Valley, CA
Dance with your family - come together to build an extraordinary circle of leaders for this winter solstice.
Gates open at 3pm, workshops and adornment gallery open at 4pm and we will circle up at 6PM.
Winter Solstice Ceremony begins at 6PM - gates will be closed after ceremony starts until the circle is complete. Gates reopen for celebration at 9PM.
Invoke the energy of lightning and change, we join hands to step forward into a new reality. This is not a ceremony for those seeking to remain in the status quo. This is a community gathering for those seeking personal and planetary transformation.
Those who come can expect a complete experience, one that engages all the senses, focuses creative intention, and cultivates courage.
Particpants are asked to wear the colors of the evening purple, turquoise, silver and magenta. The adornment gallery will be open to guests before ceremony to be fully present as their most beautiful best in the ceremonial circle. We will be weaving Indra's Net together in ceremony.
Story of Indra's Net
In the heavenly abode of Indra, there is a wonderful net that stretches out infinitely in all directions. A single glittering jewel is set in each "eye" of the net, and since the net itself is infinite in dimension, the jewels are infinite in number. If we select one of these jewels for inspection, we will discover that in its surface there are reflected all the other jewels in the net. Not only that, but each of the jewels reflected in this one jewel is also reflecting all the other jewels so that there is an infinite reflecting process occurring.
Doors open for the celebration at 9 pm. WIth an outdoor stage featuring djs all night and an indoor unplugged lounge, this event will feature danceable music the whole family can enjoy. Enjoy conscious vending and the palatial patio at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch with hot tub, fire area, healthy food, amazing music and art throughout this ranch.
There are hiking trails nearby along with gorgeous places to relax around this property. Nutritious food and drink will be available along with many amazing handcraft and maker vendors sharing their gifts in the Adornment Gallery after 9PM.
No alcohol will be provided at this event, please plan accordingly. We seek to create safe space for all ages to celebrate throughout the night. If you wish to bring in a cooler, tent or other theme camp accoutrements for your people please purchase a camping pass in addition to your admission passes so our gate guides and welcoming committee can embrace you with open arms.
Artists, theme camps, performers and ceremonial leaders are welcome to get in touch with Be Embodied to share your talents with this growing community of extraordinary leaders.
We will be leaving Hummingbird the morning of December 23rd and all guests must depart after 11AM - those who stay behind please be prepared to help clean and leave this ranch better than we found it! This is a Leave No Trace event - please be mindful of your impact on the space and this community.
All are welcome. Thank you for sharing this event with your loved ones, friends and family.
