In this very special (and very Swedish!) session we begin with a quick rundown of what you’ll need to prepare and make your glögg. We’ll open practice by grounding with a meditation to bring ourselves into the present moment and bring a sense of softness and ease into the body. Before beginning to make glögg, we’ll pull cards from one of Rachel’s favourite card decks and sit with those for a short while. Then it’s time to mull the festive spirit and make delicious glögg! After preparing this Swedish hot drink, we’ll end the hour with another read from a card deck and a closing from Rachel reflecting on the holiday season, some of the challenges it might bring to light, and how we can best take care of ourselves during this holiday season.
Both a non-alcoholic and a traditional version is included, so enjoy either option and have a merry festive season.
