About the Program
Bealtaine marks the halfway point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. If the message of Spring Equinox is about breaking free from what is confining, then Bealtaine is about embracing freedom and taking it into the realms of embodied fulfillment and ecstacy. Let us join the seasonal frolicking and commune with the vitality of life. It's all about releasing your inhibitions, letting go of the things that hold you back, and allowing yourself to express what comes naturally!
Nature reflects the vitality of life that inevitably arises after a time of dormancy and digestion. As we look toward the peak of the year with Summer Solstice on the horizon, the seasonal energy is building toward fullness. This expansion reflects a time of growth which ultimately leads toward abundance, and so Bealtaine invites you to tap into the source of your vitality - that which makes you come alive.
Bealtane is an opportunity to celebrate the wholeness of who you are becoming and the cycle of growth that is currently underway. The energy of these early Summer days calls us to sing, dance, make love, create, and delight in the pleasure of our sensuous aliveness; to express our joy in bold new ways. It's a time of year that also reminds us to give thanks and to honor the beauty and gifts of our unique expression; how necessary we are as part of the vast web of life.
