7pm | SUN | 21st Dec | Vegetarian Potluck | Donation Basis | RSVP Please

Peter Youngblood Hills and Project Butterfly invite you to:

"Here Comes The Sun"
a winter solstice breathwork circle

Please bring a vegetarian dish to share for the potluck, a yoga mat or blanket and comfortable clothes.

Peter utilizes a sacred and powerful breath technique to support and activate this journey. He will call upon the energy of the Winter Solstice to help stabilize and ground this work.

The Winter Solstice is a time for setting intentions for the year to come and preparing ourselves for the return of the Sun.

"In pre-historic times, winter was a very difficult time for Aboriginal people in the northern latitudes. The growing season had ended and the tribe had to live off of stored food and whatever animals they could catch. The people would be troubled as the life-giving sun sank lower in the sky each noon. They feared that it would eventually disappear and leave them in permanent darkness and extreme cold. After the winter solstice, they would have reason to celebrate as they saw the sun rising and strengthening once more. Although many months of cold weather remained before spring, they took heart that the return of the warm season was inevitable. The concept of birth and or death/rebirth became associated with the winter solstice."

In terms of the Heart Led Warrior, we will be letting go the last strands of the "old way" of Heartless Warriorship and celebrating the Birth of the Wise and Compassionate Steward who serves the good of all Life.
