Summer Solstice at the Gables: Yoga and Midsummer Magic

  • The House of the Seven Gables 115 Derby Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

Join Rebel Yell Yoga, Dark Moon Salem, and The Chaos Factor for another amazing evening of yoga, tarot, herbalism, and magic on the lawn of the historic House of the Seven Gables in Salem, MA! A 90 minute summer solstice journey through yoga, tarot, and earth connection awaits you! Class consists of 60 minutes of yoga and 30 minutes in solstice circle, lead in collaboration. Indoor space is available at the Gables in the event of rain. Investment of $60

Summer solstice, or Midsummer, is the longest day, and most fertile time of year, representing fruition, fulfilment, and consciousness. With the sun at its zenith, we will align our personal zeniths of power, manifestation, and self-awareness with the elements, while dancing between the earth and sky. Chrissy will lead you through 60 minutes of vinyasa flow to open powerful personal pathways of awareness, and to harness the intense fiery energy of the solstice. While focusing on the connection to the elements, you will further connect and expand through Tarot, and the 22 life lessons represented in the Major Arcana. Class is limited to 22 attendees, and upon arrival you will draw a Major Arcana card to bring awareness to one of the 22 life lessons contained within the Tarot deck. This card will serve as a focal point for meditation and as a sort of "personal spirit guide" throughout your practice.

After yoga class concludes, you will spend the remainder of the time in the solstice circle, being lead through a midsummer meditation honoring nature, the elements, and the bounty the earth provides in high summer! The circle will focus on earth medicine through plants, devotion to and reverance for the natural world.

In collaboration, Dark Moon Salem (Kris) and the Chaos Factor (Lauren and Chrissy), will be providing gifts as part of your investment in YOURSELF! More incentive to bring your energy to the lawn! You will receive the beautifully printed Tarot "spirit guide" card, as previously mentioned, and you will also receive a printed birth chart (with brief written explanation) for self-empowerment by understanding your Rising Sign, Sun Sign and Moon Sign on a conscious level. Additionally you will receive a gift of herbal wellness in the form of special solstice oil blends, herbal blends/products, etc. from the Chaos Factor! (TBD).

Please join us and ring in Summer Solstice in sangha, the community of practice!!
