Instead of going to one of the many bustling events happening around the city, quiet your minds and hearts and join us in meditation followed by a potluck.
This event is open to ANYONE in the Portland community who is interested sharing an intention filled space for the coming of Winter Solstice. Bring a friend.
6601 N Vancouver Ave
5:30pm- 5:45pm (prayer offering)
What to bring:
-pillow/blanket/or sheepskin to sit on
-candle/flower/object of your choice for a prayer offering
- piece of paper with your prayers for the coming year/what you want to cultivate in your life
-vegetarian food offering of your choice
(eggs and cheese ok)
Before we share in meditation, let's share our prayers for ourselves and the world. Make a list of what you want to cultivate in your life in the coming year, what patterns do you want to let go of, how you can help heal the world with your unique gifts, what changes need to be made to cultivate this.
We'll place our prayers on the altar while we're meditating by candlelight. Bring a candle to represent your Light and Truth. This Light combined can bring healing to the world during this shift.
We will be doing two 11 minute meditations to celebrate the Winter Solstice.
The first one is the GURU RAM DAS MEDITATION to bring healing to the world.

"...If you are a Christian, do it as a Christian. If you are a Jew, do it as a Jew. Guru Ram Das doesn't differentiate a person... personality... identity. You all belong to God. There are a lot of people in a lot of faiths, in a lot of walks of life who just need your touch. They just need you. They just need your vibration. They just feel good when you talk to them and you are around them.
Please do not deny it to anyone! Time is now, and now is the time!..." ~Yogi Bhajan

The second meditation is the ETHER TATTVA Global Winter Solstice Sadhana meditation. This another beautiful meditation that thousands of other yogis will be sharing with us around the world.

"The year 2012 is a “5″ year in Tantric Numerology. The fifth chakra/throat chakra (Vishudda) is ruled by the Ether Tattva which which corresponds to the Throat Chakra, the power of projection and penetration. Mastery of the etheric element in combination with the spoken word has the potential of bringing the heavens to the earth–to create a reality that matches the Divine Will. As we are now in the Aquarian Age without qualification, we need to become the answer to living on this small globe together. When we act from our original Self, we begin from silence and we create through the Word. We vibrate with our entire being. We project with the power of the fifth chakra. The past is gone. Let it go. Welcome what is yet to be seen. Release all fear and replace it with trust and commitment."
