About the event

Alexandra and Eirini warmly invite you to celebrate the Winter Solstice in a shamanic and yogic way to welcome the new season with purpose, open up to the energies and wisdom of winter, connect with our inner light and cultivate heartfelt human connections.

WHEN: Saturday 23rd December, from 5pm to 9pm

WHERE: Centre Pérou, Avenue du Pérou 23, B-1000 Bruxelles


Shamanic Journey - Winter Solstice Ritual: During our Winter Solstice Ritual, we will immerse ourselves into a meditative drumming journey, guided by Eirini’s drum and voice. The intention set for this ritual is to guide everyone into a connection with deep rest, inner healing, and profound quietude, in alignment with the energies of winter, inviting us to be still and turn inwards, as a preparation for the more active spring months ahead. We will journey to embrace the tranquillity of the season, allowing ourselves to let go and surrender to the nurturing and restoring energy of the solstice. It will be a moment to recharge, find profound love within, and make plans for the more vibrant months to follow. A drumming journey can induce a very deep meditative state (called “trance”), which can awaken higher feelings of connection with the divine source, our inner wisdom and creativity, and invite inner peace and balance into our life.

Kirtan (Mantra Singing): Kirtan is the practice of chanting mantras (in Sanskrit, English & other languages) in a group with live music. The word mantra means “a tool for the mind”, a meditative way to harness the (hyper-)active mind through the repetition of sacred sounds and invocations. With kirtan, we cultivate devotion to something higher than ourselves and connect to unconditional love, bliss and pure joy, as we open the heart space through sacred vibrations and voice activation. By bringing our voices together, we expand our hearts and experience a connection to ourselves, to others & beyond. Kirtan and mantra singing are part of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga (way) of Devotion.


  • Wish to reconnect to the seasons of the Earth and to your inner cycles.
  • Are curious to learn about the significance of the Winter Solstice (Yule).
  • Want to participate in a shamanic ritual and drumming journey.
  • Are ready to surrender and attune to the slower rhythms of winter and your body.
  • Are ready to liberate your voice, find inner union and connect to something higher than yourself.
  • Long to celebrate the Solstice & (early) Christmas with a spiritual family of like-minded souls.
  • Like delicious food! ;-)


We will start with a welcome circle, followed by a shamanic drumming journey and ritual, in honour of the Winter Solstice, during which we will be guided by the rhythm of the drum into a deep meditative state that will connect us with inner peace and profound tranquillity.

After the ritual, we will do a small sharing of our experiences in the circle. We will then gather to sing mantras and celebrate the joy of being alive and the sacredness of community!

We will end our gathering with a shared potluck dinner to honour Earth’s abundance and connect around delicious food and drinks.
