As Spring dawns I will be sharing more community events for the year ahead.
Some of your favourite retreats will be returning, alongside some new weekends in beautiful and wild venues later this year. More details coming soon, or you can sign up to my newsletter to be the first to hear about my upcoming events.
Please contact me here if you would like me hold a bespoke ceremony, seasonal crafting circle or any other in-person events for you or your local community.
THE DARK MOTHER is an offering at the altar of the Shadow of the maternal journey: a loving, compassionate and devoted deep dive into all aspects of the underworld we swim in as we raise our children through the individual and collective lens. We are a tribe of Mothers from all walks of life, love, identity, heritage, dharma and healing, united by the knowing - deep in our bones - that true intimacy with the darkness holds the beauty, wholeness and liberation that we long for as mothers. We bow at the feet of The Dark Goddess: she who holds the codes to all life, all death, and the mystical in-between.
Join me beside my hearth for an evening of crafting, dreaming, song, and weaving to celebrate the first stirrings of Spring and this time of rebirth.
We will honour the gifts you have received from your descent in to the Underworld and the seeds you have been tending over Winter to set you on your path for Spring with clear intention, making beautiful Brighid crosses to focus your energy on what you wish to birth in the world.
Supported by Brighid and the spirit of Birch, come and join us in celebrating this rite of Spring!

We are offering an alchemical container to support women responding to the call to reclaim the power of our authentic voices - to speak up and protect what we love, to feel the courage that bubbles forth when we align to our truth and express ourselves in an embodied way, and to commit to being an agent of change, a sacred activist responding to the needs of this time. Join us as we explore our inner landscape and the three phases of initiation - life, death and rebirth. Emerging from this journey we can birth a new story; one that celebrates our feminine wisdom and the power of our voices to heal and sow the seeds of transformation.
You are invited to join us as we explore this collective rite of passage, beginning with our relationship with fear and death and ways to prepare the ground for transformation, for rebirth.
We’ll be looking at the nature of initiatory journeys at this time of Easter and stories of initiation that offer a potential map for the way through this time.Combining meditation, inquiry, ritual and embodiment practices with the willingness to show up and be responsive to whatever arises in this sacred space, we intend to voyage on a journey of discovery and transformation.
This intimate retreat for women comes at the seasonal time of Imbolc, when we are making our way back to the light from the cave of our winter dreaming, Our descent in to the Underworld during winter is an ancient way of initiation for women, rooted in our connection to the earth and her cycles. By coming together to honour and celebrate the journey we have made and our return from the darkness, we are able to integrate the wisdom of our winter rebirth and welcome the return of the light to encourage new growth and enrich our potential.
A SOLSTICE PRAYER FOR THE EARTH.
You are invited to join The Fellowship of the Trees on a sacred Midwinter mission to support the land to rewild, in partnership with BrightSky Community‘s TREEgeneration project. We have heard the call of our mother Earth, and we are responding. Join us for a day of ceremony, community, celebration and to plant 555 trees.
An offering to tend to our grief, to join in community to honour and remember what is sacred, to feed the memory of our ancestors and weave prayers with the land. Inspired by Joanna Macy's 'The Work that Reconnects' Cairn of Mourning, this ritual walk invites us to share our sorrow so that we might know the depth of our belonging. Walking the land together, reflecting on what we have lost, and gathering to create a symbolic cairn to honour and name what we grieve.
We gather at the potent time of equinox to rejoice & claim our power. We gather to release stigma & shame. We gather to create families & communities capable of caring for ourselves & one another. Your facilitators Isla Macleod & Samantha Zipporah will weave practical skills & knowledge with spirituality & ceremony to bless the bleeding of menstruation & postpartum from all types of pregnancy release, including birth, miscarriage, & abortion.
These ancestral odysseys are an offering to cultivate a greater sense of belonging to this earth. Consisting of two 2-hour sessions, they will help lay the foundations for you to create a balanced, supportive and enriching relationship with your ancestors and the land.
This is a monthly gathering to tend to our grief in community. Allowing ourselves to be held by others as we offer up our grief and work in a ceremonial way to release and transform our sense of pain and loss.
The ceremony draws upon the elements of water and fire to hold us through two rituals that allow us to access the well within and our inner hearth, tending to both our grief and our praise. The expression of loss and love.
Gathering on the darkest night to create a ceremony to honour the hidden places within us that know grief. In the safe space of a yurt we will join in song and story, share our tears and pain, offering it up and allowing it to move through.
With a ritual fire we will further cleanse ourselves, preparing our bodies and hearts for the returning light. Using movement and sound to help release and open. Finishing with a community feast!
This retreat in an invitation to melt back into your wild nature, allowing a natural joy, reverence and connection to arise.
Guided by the surrounding landscape we will journey through the four elements to experience the ways we are supported and nourished by Nature and how the elements are reflected within ourselves.
This retreat is an invitation to unearth your wild roots and explore authentic practices that rekindle and deepen your relationship with yourself, our ancestors and Nature.
Carved within us are pathways of memory that guide us back to the source of our inspiration, creativity and joy. Through opening the channels of communication with our ancestors, we are able to access this inner wisdom and power, as we respond to their call to come home, back to this earth, and our ancient roots.
Meeting near the full moon each month to explore the different trees of the Celtic lunar calender, connecting with them in the landscape, learning their healing properties, and celebrating them through ritual and creative offerings.
By walking the land in this way through the seasons, we remember the wisdom of the cycles, we reclaim our right to be indigenous and belong to the earth in a reciprocal and embodied way.
