The Wild Hunt – A Celebration of Samhain – 13th – 15th Nov 2020
A powerful Medicine Circle has been lovingly built to honour the Celtic Gateways. We will prepare ourselves for the Saturday evening festivities where we will woad up and dance this collective journey around the sacred fire. The Wild Hunt is a form of ritual battle against the coming forces of death and destruction. Here at the gateway of the dark half of the year, we work closely with the Morrighan, with Sun God Lugh, the Bone Mother and the Tuatha dé Danann to help the souls of the dead cross over. We will open up a portal and keen them home. The Fomorian gods of chaos look to rob the worlds of prosperity. We will sweep clean these forces for the highest good of all beings. Come and join us in the Samhain season and stand up for life!
The Wild Hunt is a deep transformative journey that invites participants to work as a hollow bone. Here at the dark half of the year we work the traditional medicine of the Celtic tribes and bring prosperity to all beings as we celebrate the coming of winter, the Celtic New Year, Samhain. This authentic medicine offers deep healing on a personal level to attendees and also to the ancestors, the sidhe, and the worlds between the worlds and to the land. This profound journey is an important yearly ritual for cleansing and healing Mother Earth.
