With Irma StarSpirit, Itzhak Beery, Cristina Maria RojasFernandez
and the NY Shamanic Circle
The Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year. Join us in a shamanic summer solstice celebration as we mark this special day when the Sun shines its brightest, and we honor our inner and outer light with song, music, dance, prayers and blessings. The solstice is often associated with change and seen as a propitious time for new beginnings as well as an ideal time of year to come together with community, friends and family. Come celebrate the Sun’s warmth and light, and our Mother Earth’s love and the abundance of life she nurtures and shares with us.
Note: Please bring with a candle within a glass jar, drums, rattles and flowers, if possible.
