STEP OFF THE TREADMILL The world seems to stand still for just a moment, and the solstice offers us and our families a chance to step off the merry-go-round of the festive period and enjoy being together. Read ten ways to make this time meaningful for you and your family

MAKE MAGIC There are many ways you can bring the magic of Winter Solstice into your homes and hearts. Here are a few ways to make the most of the sacred energy with your family.

FINDING TRUE MEANING How one family choose to reinvent their Christmas celebration to find new meaning.

GET WITCHY We’ve all got a bit of witchery in us. Christmas is a time when lots of us practice plant spirit medicine without even being aware of it. Here are ways to get witchy with your kids this Solstice.
