**A pre-solstice new moon purification ceremony.**
Join us this month for a transformative and empowering celebration of the pre-solstice new moon at a new location! SO[u]L Illumination will take place at CenterPeace, a breathtaking space located just a few miles from Transitions by Truth. This is a daytime offering dedicated to reclaiming our power and basking in the light we carry within.
The ceremony commences with a plant bath purification, a time-honored ritual that connects us with the sacred energy of nature. In the embrace of CenterPeace’s natural beauty, this cleansing experience offers an intentionally curated blend of aromatic herbs and flowers from the Amazon Rainforest to purify the body, mind, and spirit, allowing for deep healing and release of stagnant energies.
***Note*** *Please be sure to bring a bathing suit or clothing that you do not mind getting wet.*
Following the plant bath, is a transcendent hapé ceremony. Hapé, a sacred indigenous tobacco snuff, is a catalyst for spiritual awakening and clarity. During this time, we will honor the medicine tradition, igniting the senses and aligning our intentions with the universe. With reverence, we embrace this sacred medicine, unlocking inner wisdom, and paving the way for personal growth, empowerment, and illumination.
As the sun shines brightly welcoming the summer season, we come together in unity, creating a sacred circle of support and encouragement. I invite you to enter the sacred realm of So[u]l Illumination, where the elements conspire to nurture and uplift your spirit! Guests are **encouraged to wear all white**, symbolizing the light that resides within each of us. As we come together in unity, the purity and radiance of our attire serve as a visual reminder of the transformative power of authenticity.
**What is Hapé?**
Hapé is a sacred tobacco snuff that is curated with medicinal plants, leaves, trees and seeds from native lands in a labor intensive, ceremonial way by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. The tobacco harvested is not grown for commercial use or genetically modified, thus it does not contain high amounts of nicotine. The Native People greatly revere Tobacco as a grandfather medicine, full of ancient wisdom and the ability to carry prayers to the creator. Hapé is a powerful plant ally that is often used for purification, protection and deep connection to the spirits, animals, and Mother Earth. An experience of sitting with hapé can offer powerful healing for the body, mind, and soul.
