Winter Solstice Ceremony and Closing of the Year Retreat

18+19 December 2022 ONLINE GLOBAL EVENT
The Rebirth of the Light
The Rebirth of the Light
Apostolia Papadamaki
2 Days

The Winter Solstice is a major spiritual portal. It is the rebirth of the divine light inside us as the days will start growing longer.

A very powerful opening, honored by many ancient cultures to strengthen their connection with the divine, and a huge opportunity for us to reflect on 2022, to release all that doesn't serve us anymore, and welcome 2023 with conscious affirmations that are perfectly aligned with all that we want to manifest on a personal but also a collective level in the new year.

At the same time, planet Mercury (Hermes the messenger of the Gods in ancient Greek Mythology), reaches the greatest eastern elongation from the Sun. This planetary event falling together with the Winter Solstice opens the door to infinite possibilities, allowing us to shed limiting beliefs and low vibrational energies, to remember who we are, and call our soul to guide us.

It's best to be present in the live online sessions with Apostolia. However, the video recordings will be available for all the participants.

Join us for this exceptional online retreat, led by Apostolia Papadamaki so that we can shift together into this potent energy of Light, through bespoke embodied practices and rituals. In case you can not join us live online, no worries! We will send you the recording to practice.
