A time for reflection & anticipation.

The Winter Solstice is the perfect time to release old attachments and envision new possibilities as the longest night of the year births a new season ahead. This event has carried cultural and spiritual significance for people throughout history. Join like minded individuals in a timed entry event to walk the Labyrinth Garden in a personal way most meaningful to you.

Enjoy hot beverages, learn how to set intentions before walking the labyrinth (plus a gift of Selenite – an ethically sourced crystal that is great for cleansing, balance and self limitations) from The Helping Moon, energy readings by Jadestone, and guided sound bath meditations with Sound Bath By Wyatt.

A sound bath is a meditative experience where healing sounds and vibrations from five Paiste gongs, seven crystal bowls and Koshi chimes to promote relaxation and balance. Guests lie down, allowing the soothing tones to create a harmonious atmosphere. It’s a therapeutic journey that enhances well-being, reduces stress and promotes tranquility.

A spiritual & meditative event

This is a spiritual and meditative event intended for adults and mature teens. A reservation is required for each person intending on entering the Labyrinth. An additional reservation is required for those attending a group sound bath session. For the respect of our participants as well as our spiritual instructors, we must advise against the presence of children not fitting the maturity level of this event.

How to reserve your labyrinth walk time

Reservations are available within 15 minute spans. 7 spots per span are available. One reservation is required for each person entering the Labyrinth. To allow time for the journey of each person, each will enter approximately 2 minutes apart from one another. Each person should arrive between 15 and 30 minutes prior to their scheduled walk time and check in at the Ranch House before proceeding to the labyrinth. Be aware of the times you are booking to avoid overlap.

To prepare for your sound bath, bring items to make you comfortable while lying on the hardwood floor in the Ranch House. Common comfort items may include a floor mat, yoga mat or blanket to lay on; blanket to cover yourself; support for your head or knees like a pillow or rolled up blanket.

The Helping Moon

Our friends at Helping Moon will be offering direction along with mesh bags filled with Selenite (crystal that is great for cleansing, balance and self limitations) bundled with wax parchment paper used to write spiritual intentions of honoring the light and darkness – let in and let go. Allow your own creativity to be present and flow through the 7 chakras as you walk the labyrinth in the way that feels most meaningful to you.
