Summer Solstice

Yang Spiral Meditation at Stonehenge

20th June – 21st June 2024

Join us for our annual sunrise Yang Spiral Meditation on the summer solstice, in the mystical solar temple of Stonehenge.  

Greet the dawn of the longest day of the year in a unique spiral meditation. We will focus the huge energies of these important meditations to assist in the reawakening of the consciousness of humanity, and genuine spirituality in the world. 

As part of our ongoing spiritual activities, Tara Yoga Centre has been organising Yang Spiral Meditations at the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge for over 20 years. This year we will return once again to this special location on the occasion of the summer solstice.  

At this wonder of the world, we see the remains of a series of stone circles, erected around 3000 BC. Each monument was a circular structure, aligned with the rising of the sun at the solstice.  

But Stonehenge is much more than its physical presence, the huge stones mark one of the strongest energetical points on the planet where an upwards energetical vortex rises from the earth. This impressive stone structure was probably built to be used as a place for ceremonies and rituals in connection with the earth and sun energies. 

As we have experienced during our meditations inside the stone circle, straight from the centre of the marked area rises a vortex of intense and refined telluric energy. 

During the longest day of the year, on the summer solstice, when the Earth is under the longest exposure to the sun, this intense manifestation of the telluric energy is polarised by the powerful energy of the sun. 

When we combine this strong telluric energy with the beneficial astrological moment of the solstice, and with the meditation performed in the special formation of a Yang Spiral, an opportunity is created for a powerful meditation experience.  

Our intention for this meditation will be to focus the huge energies to assist in the reawakening of the consciousness of humanity, and genuine spirituality in the world. 

We welcome anyone who has the aspiration to live and experience these elevated feelings and high states of consciousness, to this exceptional spiritual event.

Podcast – The magic of Stonehenge solstice meditation

Need a boost of energy? Close your eyes and imagine this. You are in astrological alignment in a physical spiral next to the ancient standing stones of Stonehenge at the exact time when this temple which was built in homage to the sun, is due to receive the first rays of the rising sun. As sunlight hits the altar stone, the music begins. You are immersed in a meditation, you feel the radiance of the sun, the ancient history of the earth beneath your feet and the expansion of your heart. At the summer solstice celebration we become like tuning forks and carry that exalted energy within us through the next weeks and months.

And if you are considering participating, you can find more information in the link below.

The spiral is a unique form of meditation where we stand holding hands. We form this in an anti clockwise direction, which focuses the energy towards the centre – yang energy. So the idea of this spiral meditation is to increase the yang energy which amplifies focus and awareness.
