I will be retreating inwards into my creative cave to write this Winter so will not be available for online and in-person healing sessions until July.
I am able to take bookings for later in the year for all bespoke ceremonies and in-person events, and am always happy to hear from you with requests for retreats, women's rites, grief ceremonies, nature connection events, and whatever services you and your community need that I can help you with. Contact me here.
In the meantime you are welcome to join one of the ceremonial water pilgrimages I offer to celebrate the Wheel of the Year. More details below.
Join me for this Lammas pilgrimage, as
we follow ancient footsteps on deer tracks and chalk trails, meet with Beech and Ash and offer our songs to the woodland spring before carrying the crystalline waters to the cauldron atop Cley Hill.
Walking the ancient paths around Glastonbury, this pilgrimage celebrates the sacred landscape of Avalon and the healing waters of the red and white springs.
Gathering at the Summer Solstice, we will be honouring the the vital life energy of the Sun and your own journey through the year with ritual and reflection as part of an immersive experience with the Elements. Honouring King Oak and the Spirits of Apple & Elder, we will be spending time with trees and offering them a Water medicine woven with our prayers.
To celebrate the potent & fertile time of Beltane, we will be walking amongst bluebells in ancient woodlands, alongside the winding Mell Stream. With ritual, song, silence & stillness.
Drinking in the vital green life force & infusing the waters with your prayers, you will activate the seeds within you ready to emerge.
Join with fellow pilgrims as we walk the old way between the ancient parish of Bruton and the Iron Age hillfort atop Creech Hill, as a way of reflecting on our inner journey through the darkness as we prepare to welcome the returning Sun at Winter Solstice.
Carrying water in ceremony to offer to the roots and bones of a mysterious Romano-Celtic Temple, we honour the connection between humans and the natural world, the visible and invisible, feeding the Holy in Nature and the greater Web of Life. With the blessing of water we are able to cleanse and release what is no longer serving us, and send out ripples as we commit to our intentions for the cycle of outward growth that comes with the life-giving Sun.
Gathering to Remember, to Rejoice and to Sing as we come together at this time of Samhain, the Feast of the Dead.
We will walk upon an Iron Age hillfort, spending time connecting with the natural world and our physical bodies, deepening our appreciation for the Web of Life. Going forth, collecting water from a sacred forest spring to carry as a prayer for Life and offer to the roots of an ancient Yew tree, Guardian of the ancestral realm and Keeper of stories.
You are invited to bring your songs, stories and offerings as we hold ceremony with the Dead, creating a feast for our ancestors and the Earth to feed them through the Winter months, enriching our lives with a deep sense of belonging and purpose.
This half-day pilgrimage is an invitation to connect with water in a more meaningful way, as we journey on foot between two springs, to offer water from one that is thriving to the other that has dried up. As we bless and carry the water and feed the earth in this way, we are remembering and honouring the sacred connection between humans and the natural world, creating new possibilities for a future where we live in harmony and reciprocity with all that surrounds Gathering close to Autumn Equinox and the new moon, we will be connecting with these energies to create ritual and weave intentions and prayers that will support us through the Winter months.
Join me beside my hearth for a n evening of ceremony, crafting, song and visioning. We will make a nest for your dream-seeds, weaving songs with prayers, and create a circle of protection that you can draw upon whenever you need courage and strength moving forward.
Join me beside my hearth for an evening of ceremony, dreaming, song, and weaving to celebrate the first stirrings of Spring and the rebirth of the Goddess.
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.
Supported by Brighid and the spirits of Birch and Snowdrop, come and tend to your sacred flame!
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.
