Much gratitude to my teacher, who shared this on Facebook. I think we are both wishing we were there in Stratton. We are there in spirit. Bright Solstice, everyone!
This year, we are gathering for the Summer Solstice at the Anusara Grand Circle where daylight shines for wonderfully long hours. It will be a unique, intimate gathering of hearts 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 our inner spirit to connect with life on a much deeper level. This rare gathering will have a profound impact on each of us because of the splendor of the light, the beauty of nature, the intimacy of community on retreat, and the space for teachers to connect individually with students – it will be a potent time for a full revelation of the Heart to unfold in the brilliance of the apex of the sun’s golden light. Spending even just a few days together in this way can spark a transformation that can light one’s life anew. Certainly from our Anusara Grand Circle gathering our beings will radiate with the luminosity of the light of the Summer Solstice sun for days to come.
