Whether you love or dread the winter season, the Winter Solstice Gathering invites you to set the tone of your coming months by going deeper into what you truly desire, letting your miracle vibration nourish you and continuing to dream big!
Guided Meditation to Ground and Set Intentions
Led by Mary-Laurence Bevington
We start with a grounding and expansive meditation that brings you as Spirit deeper into your Body in present time. The Winter Solstice is an especially poignant time to ground because the Earth and Cosmic energies are ripe to deepen into our spiritual nature and align our intentions.
Meet Each Other and Voice Your Intention
Facilitated by Jennah Synnestvedt
The magic amplifies when we come together! A place to “just be” with others is sometimes the missing link to receiving our intentions in joy. Voicing, being witnessed and celebrated in a group gives us the opportunity to match and encourage each other to keep growing.
Celebrate and Release Autumn
Journey Led by Irka Mateo
Through a Taino Shamanic Journey, you’ll bring yourself into present time so that you have a clear space to tune-in and set intentions for yourself in the coming season. You’ll also receive (or trade if you know how) a 5-minute Aura Clearing, facilitating your ability to move through.
Tune Into Your Current Needs and Desires
Led by Jennah Synnestvedt
Receive (or trade if you know how) a mini-intuitive reading on your connection to your inner voice and your heart’s guidance. Be guided through some coloring, journaling and mediation to attune your vitality, creativity and divinity energies for the best and highest good.
Clear, Set and Cheer Your Intentions for Winter
Facilitated by Jennah Synnestvedt
Clear blind spots by receiving a trance medium healing from a Divine Healing Center healer. From a vibration of limitless possibilities, paint your pathway through the winter season just how you’d like it. Give each other a big “hooray” for what we are each creating.
Plus an Interactive Lunch Break!
With optional Social Time and Mini-Readings for your Pet from Animal Communicator Alison Stanton

Irka Mateo is a Taino indigenous woman born in Kiskeya, today’s Dominican Republic and is a Taino Bohutio (medicine woman). Ms. Mateo travelled throughout the Dominican countryside for ten years between 1997 and 2007, seeking out the spiritual beliefs and healing ways of the Taino indigenous peoples, learning and documenting her findings. She was initiated into the devotional and ritual practices by the late Reyna Alejandro Jiménez, keeper of the Liborio Mateo’s Peregrination Site for forty years. Liborio Mateo was a messianic spiritual leader and most revered Afro-indigenous Bohutio of the twentieth century. Irka was initiated into the Indigenous Mysteries Spiritual and Healing Arts by Berquis Mora, the new successor of an outstanding Bohutio’s lineage connected to Liborio Mateo’s teachings.
