About the Event
Just after the Full Moon in Aries and before the Celtic Festival of Samhain we will gather to prepare ourselves....the change in nature is prevalent, the Autumn is here, the nights are longer and the days wane.
We are invited to honour the Stone and Bone. The bones of self are being re-assembled during this time. It can feel intense to transition into the darkness...so allow your roots to grow deeper and your instincts to guide the way.
"Singing over the bones" comes from the old story of La Loba - Wolf woman, Bone woman, Wild woman. She who sings the flesh back onto the bone, who's song allows the heart of nature to beat again. She who brings the wild ones back to life under the light of the Moon.
Together we will gather in circle with our drums, share stories and sing songs together in the warmth of the yurt - a beautiful, cosy round space in nature that holds the circle like a womb holds a babe. Inviting you to feel a sense of nourishment, connection and safety.
I am also very excited to announce that for this Ceremony we have been granted access to the owners private mini stone circle...more information about this special opportunity will be available when you've signed up.
