Winter Solstice 2019 – A Virtual Meditation Experience

Hello Goodbye to a Decade


Saturday, Dec. 21

8 – 9:30 p.m. EDT



Throughout the ages and across a multitude of cultures, humankind has honored the Solstice. For some it was celebrated with small fires, welcoming the return of light. For others, it was a revealing in the depths of darkness and tending to the inner garden. And, for us today, it is a potent time to savor our meditation practice and to use it as a tool of clarity and guidance as we welcome not only the year ahead of us but the start of a new decade.


“What does living come down to but bringing about those changes in ourselves … which can free us to enjoy a richness and closeness with everyone?” ~Rilke


Join Meryl Arnett for a LIVE, virtual video call on Saturday, December 21 to honor and celebrate the Winter Solstice and say Hello Goodbye to a decade. Enjoy the sanctity of your home practice and all the beautiful benefits of practicing in community with others.


We will meditate, of course, and reflect on the gifts, challenges, lessons and blessings of 2019 as a way to clear and access our vision for 2020 and beyond. From 8 – 9 p.m., we will share in a dharma talk and an extended, guided meditation on acknowledging, releasing and clearing. We will light the way for 2020 with a potent fire meditation. And, finally, from 9 – 9:30 there will be an optional Q&A plus some journaling invitations and tips for setting intentions and creating next steps.

  • A window or access to outside *encouraged, not required

Grow: A Silent Meditation Day Retreat
Sunday, March 24
8 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Day retreats are designed to help us go deeper while remaining inside our lives. We don’t have to leave, or change, or stop completely to grow our joy. On Sunday, March 24, join Meryl for a brief pause to get quiet, to get curious, and to cultivate what we most want to grow this spring.
“The point of gathering stillness is not to enrich the sanctuary or the mountaintop, but to bring that calm into the motion, the commotion of the world.”
 ~Pico Iyer
This day retreat will include guided meditation, silent meditation, walking meditation and journaling. Some meditation experience is recommended, but you don’t need to be an expert! This is designed for all of us. The parent, the student, the zen and the stressed…
