Central Phoenix near Northern & 12th Street


For three days around the solstice something unique happens, the axis of the earth pauses then shifts moving in the opposite direction. When our great sun stands still like this, it is a powerful metaphor for the energy available to us. It empowers us to harness intention and change the direction of our lives building on this energy as we enter into the new year. 

This lodge also includes a POTLUCK! Bring finger food from 1 of the 4 food groups to share with the community. 

This special spiritual ceremony enhances our connection to the natural and spiritual realms. While profound personal growth and empowerment are generated through the collective energetic container.

The entire experience last around 3-4 hours in a traditional style and is guided by a highly trained and experienced shamanic leader. There are 3 main parts: an opening ceremony and intention setting outside the lodge (including instructions for in the lodge), the in-lodge guided ceremony and closing rituals outside the lodge.

The lodge itself is a structure that represents “the womb of Grandmother Earth.” She supports us to rebirth ourselves into the brightest and shiniest sacred human beings that we can be. Inside we pray/send positive energy for ourselves, loved ones and the world.
