Learning to See in the Dark

What does it take to be healthy in body and spirit at the beginning of a dark time? During pre-solstice, the days are dark and getting darker. If we are looking for a light at the end of the tunnel, we won’t find it, because it isn’t visible right now. It will return later, in the midst of even greater darkness. Right now, learning how to see in the dark, live in the dark, and face the dark are essential skills for our times.

Join us for a day of teachings and practices that help us to find sustenance and strength during the dark times. When we are not afraid of the dark, it has any gifts to give us: wisdom, power, and the secrets of death and rebirth.

A Season Lasts More Than A Day

Sometimes it takes more than a one-day workshop to integrate the gifts of the season! That’s why we’re offering the Water Seasonal Bundle to support a more well-rounded experience of Winter’s healing opportunities. Along with other workshop participants, you are welcome to join us for 30 days of Water seasonal healing emails (worth 5 CEUs), the Water archive book, and two group Water Healing hours over the next month (December 15, and January 5, 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST). You’ll find these items listed on the registration page where you may choose to add one, two, or all three to your Pre-Solstice Retreat.

This combination of approaches will give us an opportunity to deepen Water body language, align with our core values, and consolidate our practice of inner sanctuary in our lives. Within a strong healing container, loss of heart in Water can take heart again.

A New Online Experience

This teleconference will be like no other that you have taken. We will use a variety of gentle yet effective online health and hygiene measures to create a Group Heart that will be nourishing, palpably connected, and rich with transmission.


What people are saying about working with Thea online: “The main thing I was most struck by after a 3-4 hour practice with Thea was how energized and full I felt; I was ready to keep going when it ended.  It was the exact opposite of how I’ve felt after many 1-hour Zoom calls at work.”

– David S.

“I have never met a more gifted teacher. Thea embodies the herbs and formulas in such a beautiful and heartfelt way, that what would otherwise be mere information becomes a living immediate experience for the student. Don’t blink or you’ll miss something intensely wonderful and unique.”

– Ki Ennes, M.Ac., L.Ac.
