Summer Solstice Rituals to Welcome Pitta Season

Today, as the sun reaches its peak in the Northern Hemisphere, we are blessed with the longest day of the year—a powerful time to celebrate the sun's life force, the beauty of nature and your own personal growth so far this year.

In Ayurveda, summer is associated with pitta dosha, which governs internal heat, metabolism & transformation. Below we share some Ayurvedic-inspired ways to celebrate the Summer Solstice, balance the fiery energy of pitta & embrace the abundant light that is available for us all to enjoy.

- Start your day with Sun Salutation ( Surya Namaskar ) to honor the sun & harmonize your body's energy.

- Engage in a guided meditation focusing on cooling & calming the mind. Try this Cooling & Soothing Meditation .

- Make a journal entry reflecting on lessons learned during the spring season & set intentions for the new season ahead.

A Summer Solstice Blessing

“May you find time to honor the Sun, which brings us Light & Heat & Fire. 

May you offer gratitude to the Sun for bringing Life to Earth,

May your heart open to all that is created by the Sun on any given summer day.”
