About the Event
This workshop will be led via Zoom with helpful tips to create your sacred retreat space in the comfort of your home.
Beltane is on May Day, halfway between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. Rooted in powerful energy of celebration. Beltane honours life. The Earth energies are at their peak.
Align to the delicious, transformative energies of the wild, wonderful world with this ritual evening. I’m particularly interested in the heightened creativity of this time which we can all tap into.
During the winter the ground was prepared, at Imbolc the seeds were sown, in Spring the blossom emerged and at Beltane we are flowering and in bloom. Nature is alive with creation, bursting with beauty. Beltane is that magical mid-point in Spring where our ‘dreams are hatching’ and our creations are given wings. I believe all of us have a creative spark within which can manifest in various forms.
Theme: Creativity and Passion.
We can now listen to the whisperings within and the call of the wild and see what ideas we really want to manifest in our lives. And now more than ever, what we don’t want.
Are you being true to yourself? What are the obstacles preventing you from going ‘your own way’? Is there a deep desire you have to create something that feels in line with your souls purpose but you’ve not listened to (or acted on) the call yet?
If this all resonates join me for this sacred online circle.
We’ll be working with the Rhiannon, the Goddess of fertility, rebirth, magic, beauty, artistic inspiration and transformation.
What is a Circle?
Circles have existed since ancient times (in every culture), they are the oldest form of social interaction, it was normal to gather, to share stories and pass on wisdom. It’s in our DNA. So if this is your first circle I invite you to give yourself this gift on this magical day of the year, to step out of your everyday life with responsibilities and come home to yourself. It will be a safe and nurturing space.
The evening will include:
☽ Opening of the circle - candle ceremony
☽ Introduction to Beltane, what it is and why we are gathering on this powerful day.
☽ Exploring the Goddess of Beltane, Rhiannon.
☽ Altar creation - why and how we create them.
☽ Guided self-healing meditation, gentle free-movement and self-massage.
☽ Journalling (and drawing) with guided prompts and oracle card collective reading for the circle
☽ Rituals to honour the seasonal shift
☽ A guided seasonal shamanic journey (channeled for the circle) to meet our guides and receive divine messages.
☽ Follow up email with further support, activities and card readings.
What to bring:
- A Candle and lighter/matches
- A blanket, journal, pen, cosy socks
- An offering from nature that represents the season for you - some symbols of Beltane are - flowers, fallen branches, crystals, a red rose, horses, honey bee, horseshoe, berries.
- Any other crystals you may like to charge in the space
- Essential Oil to anoint yourself - something flowery/woody would be lovely
- White Sage/Palo Santo for smudging (if you have, clapping works great too!)
- Hot drink and H20
What to wear: The colour of Beltane are shades of green, bright Spring colours, blues, purples, yellows and red. Feel free to go all out and wear the colours (and a flower crown if you’re really feeling it) that make you feel in harmony with nature but also make sure you’re comfy - we’ll be seated, doing gentle movement and lying down for the session.
Sharing: There will be moments during the circle where you are welcome to share your experiences and ask questions either via typing the Zoom chat or at the Q&A at the end. If you would prefer to just listen and turn off the camera, that is absolutely fine too. You don’t need a Zoom account to access the circle, the link will take you straight to it.
The day prior to the event you will receive the Zoom link and pre-circle details and tips, if you don’t receive this please contact me directly (details below).
