The Yoga of Summer Solstice, by John Friend
The Summer Solstice is the longest light of the year. It is an apex, when the intentions that we set earlier in the darkness come to fruition.
The sun is the source of life. During the Summer Solstice the light is so vibrant and clear, and shadow is the smallest. Winter Solstice is the antithesis, it is the darkest time if year when we tend to question and doubt. In the dark it can be more challenging to see clearly that we are all interconnected. We can lose sight of the intrinsic goodness of life.
The Summer Solstice radiates pure brightness. At this peak in the light, there is an unwavering knowing, and we are completely absorbed in the essential source of life. It is a time of upliftment and renewal, when everyone is in their full creative power.
This year, we are gathering for the Summer Solstice at the Anusara Grand Circle in Vermont,where daylight hovers on the horizon. It will be a unique, intimate gathering of spirits in a remote location away from city life, flowing with Grace in nature. During this time together out in the quiet of the green mountains of Stratton, we will journey into the inner spirit to connect on a deeper level. This rare gathering will have a profound impact on each of us because of the light, the beauty of nature, the intimacy of community on retreat, the space for teachers to connect individually with people – it will be a potent time for a full revelation of the Heart to unfold in the resplendence of the apex of the sun’s light.
