CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS Imbolc Workshop
Welcome to the first stirrings of Spring!
As early shoots break through the surface of the frosty earth, each day is becoming markedly lighter and longer.
Rooted in the ancient Celtic world, the celebration of Imbolc heralds this kindling of new life and is dedicated to Brigid, powerful, primal goddess of fire and creativity, guardian of the eternal flame.
Inspired by Brigid’s ancient wisdom, we will create and explore our own new stories of healing, foretelling, building, crafting, protecting and tending the hearth.
We invite you to join us to tap into this seasonal kindling of the earth to ignite your deepest passion, open your heart and reinvent yourself as a bard for a fresh dawn.
The wheel of the year
“The combination of meditation/nature/relaxation/writing was really rather beautiful.” Pauline Harris
Tune into Nature’s ancient cycles of birth, growth, fading and death through each season. Engage more fully with your essential rhythms of continuous change and transformation. Throughout the coming year, author Diane Samuels and healer Ursula Barbieri are offering a series of half-day workshops at key points in the WHEEL OF THE YEAR.
Combining WRITING and MEDITATION, each workshop will take you on a seasonal journey to find balance between times of light and darkness and find a deeper sense of belonging to our planet Earth.
Techniques are drawn from shamanic practices, yoga, meditation and breath work. Writing exercises include free-flow, stream of consciousness, diving deeply into words, sensing our physical and emotional states to write from heart, mind and body.
There will be solo time to tune in quietly, enhancing personal awareness, as well as group time to share together.
We hope, by listening to and honouring Nature's cycles, each participant will journey within to embrace the present moment more vibrantly, develop personal practice and take more conscientious care of ourselves, each other and the planet as a whole.
“Great combination of powerful energy and beautiful calmnesss.” Manjo Hatcher “It took me to a secret place.” Julie Vallortigara
