Awakening to The Light: Imbolc Circle

Hosted by Roots and Resonance 

Saturday, 1 February 2020 from 11:00-14:00

You are invited into co-created and guided circle to be deeply relaxed, nourished and re-charged – gently moving into an awareness of the shifting seasons & the ancient stories and lore that can support personal and collective growth.

We are on the cusp of spring, in the depths of winter’s cold – new life begins to emerge – within the landscape and deep within us. You will connect to personal guidance through ancient & essentially timeless practices, whilst working with the healing and physical presence of the flame. Supported by ancient ritual, you will take this “fire” back home with you, to guide you into the increasing light…

Guided by Sarah Fay, Ancient Ways Practitioner & Seer, using practices grounded in local landscape & seasonal folklore. This ceremonially-held workshop, one of 8 following the Wheel of the Year, will include: co-creation of a seasonal Altar, the awakening and “charging” of your personal Imbolc Candle through consciousness-altering practices & herbal preprations, rhythm-making with percussion and a guided drum-led inward journey for self-discovery and deep relaxation.
