Samhain Celebration with The Spirit of the Sacred Drum
Sat 14 October 2017, 14:00 – 20:00 BST
The Samhain workshop is The Magical Year. Seasonal Celebrations To Honour Natures Ever Turning Wheel.
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 greater whole 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.
Throughout 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 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.
Samhain, which marks the beginning of the year, is the most significant festival in the year. Samhain is the gateway into the dark half of the year and the season of winter where the focus is on the soul’s journey through darkness, from where new life will emerge in springtime.
