Exhale! A Sacred Pause to Release the Year and Seed Your Dreams
A YEAR-END WINTER GATHERING
In the dark, short days of December, let’s cross the threshold of 2020 in good company! Together we will re-kindle our connection to the sacred, bless all that has fallen away, restore ourselves with prayer and laughter, and re-invigorate our hearts for a new chapter.
Drawing on ancient teachings to help us move through darkness and fear into the light and courage, we will engage our dreams, our ancestors, and our unconscious to release 2020 and clarify our sacred intentions for 2021.
Above all, we will employ ritual and ardent prayer to recruit wisdom and protection from the Divine Realms.
What will you experience?
Exhale! has two gatherings on Wednesday, December 16 and 23 from 7-9pm eastern, 6 central, 5 mountain, 4 pacific, 2 Hawaii, wee hours in Europe, and Thursday morning in the Pacific Rim. Find the time in your time zone.
- During our first gathering on Wednesday, December 16, along with prayer, teachings, and focusing our intentions for the new, more hopeful, year ahead, Tirzah and Janet will guide us in releasing the anxiety and exhaustion that may have built up in 2020.They will also share a “recipe” format that each of us can use to create our personal Solstice Ritual for the sacred night of Sunday, December 20. Everyone will be given the exact time of the Solstice in your time zone so you can plan when and where you wish to hold your ritual.
- When we gather again on Wednesday, December 23, we will share our stories, celebrate our experiences, and gather all our hearts into one tapestry of light to carry us all into a momentous new season of life.
LIFE in Hebrew carries the sacred vibration of 18. Plus 18 is the Tarot for the Moon. So please select your offering for this gathering from these 3 multiples of 18, the number of LIFE.

Janet Conner is a prayer artist, mystic witch, deep soul explorer, field guide in The Mystic, and mistress of the threshold between worlds—the mystical theta brain wave state. But first and always, Janet is a devoted daughter of the Feminine Divine and Original Prayer. As a mystic witch, Janet enthusiastically embraces the sacred call to transmute witch from a word that strikes terror into a title that awakens a bone-deep memory of walking in wonder in a world that is sacred, beautiful, and alive. Janet participated in Perdita Finn’s first classes on Taking Back the Magic and knows that Perdita’s work is the source of the wild creative river now running through her as she listens to the voices of thousands of years of witches guiding us gently into sacred wholeness in the radical prayer intensive coming this summer: The Return of The Witches: a Jeanne d’Arc Listening Novena.
Janet’s first book, Writing Down Your Soul, became a bestseller, followed by The Lotus and The Lily, Soul Vows, Find Your Soul’s Purpose and more. When “Prayer Artist” came calling in February of 2018, Janet found herself writing a whole new genre of prayer as love songs, redefining prayer altogether, and leading radical prayer intensives with fellow female mystics. She launched the Praying at the Speed of Love podcast to host intimate conversations with authors and teachers about their private prayer lives.
Although she can hear the trees in the Hudson River Valley whispering her name, for now Janet lives with silence, solitude, and joy in the tiny town of Ozona, Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.
