Hopi friends tell me that the thoughts and focus you have at Winter Solstice are the seeds you will grow in the coming year.

This is a potent time to connect with nature and ceremony and the power of our own focused intention to create a new vibrational frequency and positive movement.

Humankind has supported renewal of life in this way for thousands of years.

Programs led by Sandra Cosentino, who has more than 3 decades of experience leading mystic insight and vision quest retreats, ceremonies, and tours (Sedona, Hopi, Navajo).
