Modern life can draw us away from the Earth and the changing seasons: we can be overtaken by technology and an endless drive to consume rather than create. Yet the wild world, and a more organic, simpler life is never far away, and we can open our hearts to the beauty of nature once more. Marking all eight Celtic festivals then becomes a continuous cycle of spiritual growth and celebration that deepens our connection to the Earth, and makes our lives soulful and seasonally rich once again.
Celebrating these seasonal festivals is a way to make our relationship with the Earth and the world around us conscious and sacred once again. Here is an opportunity to reclaim our natural selves, and rediscover the greaterwhole of which we have always been a part.
This spiritual work is a years journey together containing eight seasonal workshops. The option to access individual workshops is available to those with a casual interest, however attendance throughout the course is advisable to experience the full benefits of this magical transformational year.
hroughout our eight seasonal workshops we will guide you through the rich traditions of the Magical Year, with information and practices that can help you re-align with natures's rhythms, we will end the day with a seasonal celebration and ceremony in nature (weather permitting) that will be both spiritually rich and joyful
During our journey through the Wheel of the Year, we will introduce you to the revered trees of the Celtic Tree Calendar and their unique gifts of healing, guidance and higher consciousness.
Come celebrate one of the most powerful moments in the annual cycle with a fire ceremony, drumming, journeying, music, songs and movement. As our ancient ancestors did, we will honour the rebirth of Tata Inti (Father Sun) from the depth of the longest, darkest nights in recognition of our own struggles to overcome our shadows and mirror within ourselves the triumphant return of the light that empowers our Spirit.
