Time of the Sun
It is the Time of the Sun.
This time of year offers us an extraordinary opportunity to enter deep relationship with qualities of the sun that can clarify, nourish, vitally charge and align our inner core and our physiology.
The sun is representative of the Divine Masculine aspects of consciousness, of the Cosmos, and of our self.  So, there are greater lessens to be learned in this as well, as it is a part of all of us.
  •  This Sunday, June 16 is Fathers’ Day. 
  • Zacciah will be joining sound masters Dorothy Stone and Raphael Groten at the Williston, VT, Yoga Roots for a special Fathers' Day Sound Temple, and will offer a practice to honor and activate the solar/Divine Masculine aspects of ourselves, which we all carry, and which can be very healing, transformative, and nourishing.  (see details below.)  
As the Sun approaches Solstice each year, its clarity, warming, and nourishing properties become quite evident.  

mtascutney.sunstar1.40cr.75.jpgWhen you can feel the Sun on these peak days, when it is highest in the sky, especially on charged, clear atmospheric days, you can literally feel the electric charge of the Sun.  If you enter into a meditative collaboration with it, you can easily feel its photonic energy cascade through your bio-field and cells, stripping away excess energy (heavy energy,) clarifying, then nourishing and charging your entire field and physiology.
Recognize the Sun as a living being, and life force, a part of the Living Cosmos, here in service to our life form and life force on Earth.
