About the Event

Mark the cross-quarter festival of Beltane at this magical day retreat in the woods.

When: Sunday 30th April 2023 

Time: 10.30am-5pm

Location: A secret hidden gem near Alderley Edge, Cheshire, UK.

You will hear from Sadie with the full details, address and directions.

Beltane marks the mid-point between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. The earth is blooming and expansive. We are gathering to tend to the soil of the soul through movement, connection, nourishment and rituals in order to create space to ‘bloom’ this season. This time of year is abundant, and we will be harnessing these energies for our own projects and growth together in a women’s circle. 

We will be working with all of the elements. This land is made for this kind of work with its stone fire-pit, beautiful lake (with the option to swim) and ancient woodland. 

This promises to be a day retreat where you leave feeling grounded, inspired and energised and with the knowledge and wisdom to know how to bring your dreams to life and nurture yourself with this seasonal shift. 

This retreat is about community ‘gathering’, so with that in mind each guest is invited to bring an offering from nature for the Beltane altar.

What is a Women’s Ceremonial 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:

Cold pressed juice & plant-based raw treat on arrival

A plant based buffet lunch provided by Root to Flower

 An opening ceremony with smudging & intention setting

An introduction to the current cyclical energies

Fireside conversation and optional spaces to share

Guided self-healing energy-channeling meditation 

Guided movement medicine barefoot on the land to ‘earth’

Soul journaling with guided prompts

A Beltane altar space to be our focal point for the day with oracle cards

A Beltane fire ritual for manifestation 

Space for ‘you’ to walk in the ancient woodland or take a dip in the lake or explore the leylines of this sacred land using Sadie’s dowsing rods! 

Heart-warming Ceremonial Grade cacao around the fire with a heart opening visualisation

A live song to close the space 

Beltane Ritual kit to take home 

We will be in touch with all the information on what to bring/wear and the location details closer to the time. Please let us know of any dietary requirements.

There are only limited places available, this is to keep the retreat intimate and also to protect and preserve the beautiful land we are working with. These events have sold out before in less than a day so if you're keen to join reserve your place asap.

“Thank you for the wonderful circle, please know that your work makes a huge difference in the world.”

“I have been joining Sadie’s circles for over a year now and they have been so grounding, insightful, magical and joyful. I also love how Sadie brings in elements of music and movement to the circles too. Sadie’s offerings are very special, her guided meditation journeys are like no others! (transported into other worlds). Thank you Sadie”
