Spring Equinox Somatic Ceremony 2024

Sign up now! Ceremony begins March 20th, 2024

Revive. Resurrect. Replenish.

Collaborate with the season and create an environment to flourish in - physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and creatively. 

Get inspired, grounded, receptive and generative, move your body and your breath in ways that support your life, and move your life with care, intentionality, openness, and strength. 

Developing a relationship with the rhythms and cycles of the natural world can help us cultivate a meaningful relationship with ourselves and with our environment. The seasons teach us to constantly and continuously adapt. As we attune to the earth, we become more conscious of how we treat ourselves, how we interact with others, and how we impact the land through our actions. 

Springtime is an opportunity to breathe new life into ideas, projects, relationships, how we view things, and who we are. 

Ritual helps us commit and recommit, release certain things and revive others, initiate a process and dismantle a pattern. When we engage in a ceremony that invites the body to remember that it is a part of an ecosystem, we make healthier choices for ourselves, for our relationships with others, and for the earth.

When we place our body in the season, and invite the season into the body (with activities, food, practices, contemplation, observation, conversation, imagination, movement, and stories) we become more present, we are more able to make the changes that we want, and we connect more deeply to the natural world. We become stewards of the earth. And this process is transformative, empowering, and supportive. 

Spring Equinox is a moment of balance, and it’s a tipping point.

It is a celebration of life’s return from the underworld. It transitions the world from darkness to light, and initiates new ways of being, new pathways to walk on, and new worlds to build. 

Spring is the season of Eros 

Everything in the natural world pulses with desire

Bees and blossoms sing their song of symbiosis

Animals come out of hibernation 

and move in the direction of one another 

Birds dance to find their mate

And the green returns to the land

Season Somatic Ceremonies are journeys that integrate the personal and the planet, the self and society, the sacred and the secular, the natural and the cultural, where you are in your life, where you’re coming from, and where you want to go.

Join us for an inspiring, immersive experience in Spring’s song!

with asana (yoga poses), pranayama (breathwork), meditation, contemplation, mantra (sacred sounds and chants), mudra (hand gestures), and magic! 

In this Somatic Ceremony we will turn toward the teachings of Earth in Springtime and move our bodies with the season’s myths and metaphors. 

This ceremony is made of 6 sections. You can take your time with it, or do it all at once. It is created to support you, and crafted to fit the needs of a busy life, without sacrificing depth. 

Whether you take a few hours to move through the whole process, or take your time with this seasonal ceremony and spread it over a few days or even weeks, this journey will nourish your soul and enliven your soma. 

What you’ll get:

  • 1 video to explore mythology, symbols, and teachings from the natural world as they relate to Spring Equinox. This video is about 60 minutes. You can take it on a walk or on a drive, to the bath or to your house chores, or you can make tea, light candles, and sit with a journal to take notes as you watch/listen. 
  • 5 videos to embody the mythopoetic magic of Spring Equinox through practice (yoga based - asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra). Each practice video is about 30 minutes. Each practice relates Springtime to an element in nature, and brings it deeply into the body.
  • Prompts to help you engage in the season on a personal and a collective level.
  • 1 Bonus video of breath work, chanting, and meditation with mantras and mudras, to receive the magic of the season, and to generate the growth and transformation you desire. 
  • Unlimited access to this content.
  • A deep process of integrating self and environment, nature, the body, the mind, the heart, the creative force, and society.

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.

Julie Goldman , Dancer, Mama

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.

Sarah Eggers , Therapist, Mama

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.

Kelly Grace , Yoga Teacher

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.

Stephanie Jenkins , Teacher
