8th Annual Winter Solstice Blessing
Reserve your spot in advance! This event sells quickly. (You may also pay cash at the door). Seating is limited to 130 each night. Past years have sold out swiftly. All seats are general admission. Arrive early for the best choice of seats (and to drum!)
The entire audience drums (drums and other wahoo-makers are provided, or bring your own!) A chorus of 20 terrifyingly gorgeous earth-goddess women chant ancient melodies that Lutherans are not allowed to learn. The Urban Shaman tells three stories that call up laughter and a quivering sensation from inside your mythic muscles. The Old Bone Mother comes to remove your spiritual toxins (if you want that). The evening culminates in a shamanic ceremony in which the Great White Reindeer comes to give you a blessing (if you want that). Dancing and ecstasy are encouraged (but not required). It's an experience that is at once deeply reverent, poetic, smart and funny. You are absolutely free to enter the experience in any way that is meaningful to you. You don't have to believe anything or do anything that is not authentic to you. The purpose of the evening is to help you feel alive all the way down in your mythic bones, connected to nature, connected to Mystery, connected to each other.
What past audience members say:
"Dear Jaime Meyer, I don't know who you are or how you learned this, but you blew my mind in exactly the way I've been wanting. Thank you."
"It's like church on acid."
"I have not felt this alive in years!"
"It takes you into a whole other world where you feel a great power of blessing, and then brings you back again safely."
"Get tickets early."
