Summer Solstice Gathering:
June 20-23, 2019

The collective consciousness of all Humans
who have lived, are living and will live.

Each year we seek words that send out the call for us to gather…

We appear as tiny separated islands – surrounded by a vast ocean of fear and ignorance – seemingly isolated and alone.

As this ocean recedes under the warm radiance of an ever-brightening spiritual sun and the cool calculus of magical media, we notice that there are more of us than previously imagined.

We notice that our shores are moving toward each other. Bridging between them is becoming easier and easier. We begin to see that we are all interconnected – all a part of the same whole.

Soon those boundaries that separated us will be but a faint memory – lost in the swirling surf of a new sea – a sea of unfettered co-creativity.”

Where Have We come From?
Beginning at the 2002 Summer Solstice,  we have gathered in the magnificent redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California to discover, understand and amplify our deepest commitments for the next cycle of the sun.

We seek to align ourselves with the forces of creation that have guided us since the beginning. We believe that none of us is meant to do our work alone. By sharing our deepest commitments with one other and with Mother Earth, we take a stand for our evolutionary role in the world.

We gladly accept our role of player in an infinite game.  We do this by consciously choosing to evolve ourselves and our social forms in ways that will best serve the well-being of all of life.  Questions provide a light scaffolding to hold us as we evolve.

  • What do we choose to give back to Life in gratitude for all we have received?
  • What do we choose to learn at this Solstice Gathering?
  • What doorway is ours to step through with renewed awareness and vitality?

May these three questions inform our journey from now until the Summer Solstice.

Once again, we send this call from our hearts to yours to consider gathering this June with your community to pledge what is yours to give back to Life.

What is the Context for the Gathering?
 The Mayan Sacred 20 Count is a sequence of 20 numbers in an ancient design of wholeness that encompasses all of the energies of the universe .  It forms the foundation of the Medicine Wheel Teachings carried by Pele Rouge and FireHawk.

Each number, beginning with One, carries a unique energy, a unique aspect of life unfolding. Fifteen years ago, we chose to align our Summer Solstice Gatherings with one number – one energy of the Sacred 20 Count each year.

This year, our focus is upon the #15 – The Collective Consciousness of all Humans who Have Lived, Are Living and Will Live.

Fifteen holds the collective consciousness of all Humans – a vast energy of life expressing herself.

The Fifteen reminds us of our interwoven relationship with all of the humans on our home planet.

And so we invite you into the privileged realm of commitment to something aligned with your life’s purpose and destiny within a safe circle of your peers.

  • We invite you to align yourself with Nature and with the energies that are “quickening”  in these times of great change.
  • We invite you to once again enter a new relationship with Life, as partner, steward and co-creator.

We invite you to come to the 2019 Summer Solstice Gathering in this year of the Fifteen – The Collective Consciousness of all Humans who Have Lived, Are Living and Will Live.

With Love from,

FireHawk, Pele Rouge, Bill (Sequoia) and Marilyn (Eagle Woman)
