About Event

What to Bring:

Mat,
Blanket,
A vessel to sip from,
a Journal if that calls

The coming Winter Holy Days, however you have come to know them, offer space for community and Island-rhythms to gather together with the deep-dark in mind and heart, while the returning light is flickering not far off. We’ll gather the evening of December 12th, a Sunday, to sit with some Island-berry-medicine (Hawthorn, Rosehips, are what I have in mind as of now), drop into sacred stillness in the body, and listen to the hymns, the silent stirrings of the seasons at be. Sensing into the body throughout conscious communion with internal and external offerings, we’ll explore what the season of slow, of yin, of darkness asks us to burrow into, what we need to or desire to leave in the dark, what pulls us back into the light with the thought of unfurling not far off.

You are invited to sit with us – exactly as you are – and honor the ancient call to nestle into Winter’s bones.

About Caroline

Caroline began teaching movement practices a few years ago in a singular-sense. With land, plant-kin, and subtle body guidance, she wove her movement teachings and studies into her other art forms to create a wide tapestry that covers the breadth of her day to day work and ways. With Vinyasa and Yin studies, along with a few other modalities here and there, Caroline built Somatic Activation – a physical movement sequence that aids in the opening and allowance for subtle body knowing to come through alongside creative + intuitive moving, stillness, mindful being-ness. Caroline’s teachings are rooted in her reverence to the necessary practice of Earth and Subtle Body communion through community gathering, land-based devotion, and ancestral guidance.

Living on unceded Coast Salish lands, Caroline found a deepened sense of connection to all that San Juan Island offered. Her art now dwells in the realms of fiber and textiles as a weaver, music as a singer and tin whistler, and wordsmithing as a poet and language-enthusiast. All of her work relates back to her Earthbound experiences and ethereal calls to connect with the unseen so as to expand + contract self, serve community as we walk home, and activate in the here + now.
