Adrian and I are very excited about our next Magical Forest Retreat on the 21st of May. There are still some places left.
BELTANE AND HAWTHORN
Celebrating the power, passion and pain of the heart.
21st of May in Hampshire.
Jo Dunbar and Adrian Rooke take us on a journey along the Celtic Wheel of the Year to the merry month of May and the ancient celebration of Beltane. This is the time when love fills the hedgerows; when the Gods and the Goddesses come together in the Greenwood marriage bringing fertility to the land. Working ritually in the forest, the sacred tree that we will focus on at this time is the Hawthorn which is truly a tree of the heart. Hawthorn is a boundary tree, one of bridal petals and thorns – in this workshop we explore our boundaries, the power and the passion as well as the pain of love, and the graceful acceptance of change.
We shall also connect with the Celtic Gods and Goddesses of this period in the Wheel of the Year.
Beltane was always a time of bonfires and frolicking in the woods and the meadows. In keeping with this noble tradition, we shall discuss some herbal aphrodisiac potions. As always, there will be stories, and joyful song and chanting, meditations and working magically with our sacred Hawthorn.
We have a workshop space for private use within the Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Hampshire.
