Somatic Ceremonies are created by Hagar Harpak as a weaving of storytelling, movement, breath, and reflection, to support bodies, hearts, minds, and creativity in tuning into the changing season, receiving the gifts and the wisdom of nature’s cycles, and living in deep relationship with soma, soul and soil.

Participating in Hagar’s ceremonies connects me to the larger cosmic story of which we are all a part, but which I often fail to recognize in the bustle of everyday life. Hagar creates beautiful containers of sacred space that help me drop-in to the beauty of my own life and the dance of earth’s cycles. Each ceremony is engaging for body, heart and mind, inviting creativity, play, reflection and intimacy. I always leave feeling more connected to the life-giving rhythms of nature, inspired by the other beautiful humans who show up with authenticity and openness, and more rooted in my sense of Self. The ceremonies help me to show up to my life with intention, leaving me more grounded, grateful and enlivened to move back out into ordinary life from a place of deeper love.
Participating in rituals with Hagar has been soul-shifting. Through these rituals I can connect with a softer, fiercer and more playful side of myself. This is a side that I know is there, but that is challenging for me to see and embrace. Through these rituals I know and accept myself more fully, and I am able to engage with myself and others more authentically.
I've been practicing with Hagar for ten years now, and I couldn't recommend her more. Hagar is able to combine community, ceremony, mythology, and movement in a way that is both profound for experienced practitioners, and accessible and welcoming for people who are new to the practice and/or skeptical of spirituality. Hagar is able to weave in stories and myths from a variety of different traditions in order to prompt discussion and reflection regarding relationships, family, and personal growth. I never know exactly what to expect from one of her ceremonies, but I'm always able to learn, and reflect, and gain new insight into my current circumstances. I always leave a ceremony reinvigorated and feeling like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders (or my hips, or wherever else I'm holding my stress and emotions). It's almost impossible to describe the journeys we take during these ceremonies . . . they really must be experienced to be appreciated!
Hagar’s magical brew of myth, practice, and personal truth, help give my intentions form, my dreams substance, and the smallest parts of myself the permission to be. These ceremonies ground my life within the cycles of the earth in a poetic, yet matter of fact way. Hagar creates the space to connect to something greater without taking ourselves too seriously. She gives us a place to bring all of ourselves to. Having this space throughout the year to ponder myths and traditions, explore my own inner landscape and physicality, and connect to other like minded souls has been an anchor for me. It has helped give me strength in these trying times and a greater ability to find comfort with the uncomfortable. Hagar is a guiding light uniting us witches, thinkers, feelers, artists, and fellow humans together as we strive to build our lives with vision and purpose.
Hagar’s moon and seasonal ceremonies have been an essential part of my life during an epically challenging, a devastating year actually. What I love is that I can show up to these communal and ceremonial spaces that Hagar so lovingly creates exactly as I am, which is sometimes a mess, and find the experience spacious enough to envelop me however I show up. And I think this is because Hagar has a magical way of creating community and allowing all the pain, messiness, discomfort, grief as well as joy, beauty, sensuality, humor and grace of our human lives to coexist. Steeped in myth and ancient texts and the cycles of nature, these ceremonies simultaneously allow me and others to process experiences of the time we’re living in now and connect to ancient wisdom. Listening transfixed to Hagar’s luscious retelling of Hindu myths is both deeply pleasurable and deeply thought provoking, and how she connects these stories to mantra and movement to bring them into the body is an experience that is transformative.
