About This Event

Dearest One,

You are warmly welcomed to a beautiful day retreat nestled within the sacred heart of Britian's most beloved stone circle.

This moment in time offers us the opportunity to root into the seasonal shift of Summertime and honour the abundance of the first magnificant harvest springing from the holy soil, and from within our hearts. 

As we turn the wheel of the year a little further we head deeper into the last threads of Summer, by honouring the Celtic festival of Lammas or Lughnasadh (Loo-Nassa). It is a cross-quarterly festival celebrating the first harvest, welcomed through themes of abundance, gratitude, renewal, giving and sharing in the feasts. 

The name Lughnasadh is usually taken to mean “the feast of the first fruits” and it remains an important moment within the wheel of the year to acknowledge the abundant nature of the Earth, the grain harvest and is celebrated with feasts, bread baking and crafts - such as the making of corn dollies.

As sisters we gather to delve deeper into ourselves, our hearts, to ground, lift and celebrate one another - taking this opportune time for harvesting and enjoying the fruits of our labor from the past year.

By taking time to look back and reflect on our accomplishments and progress made during this period, we gain a sense of fulfilment while also looking forward and what stirrings are unfolding from this halfway point between Summer Solstice & Autumn Equinox.

You are invited to join a beautiful afternoon exploration of this seasonal shift, within a sacred circle of women upon the auspicious energetic pulse of Wiltshire. All that is spoken within the circle, remains within the circle.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Over the afternoon you'll be guided through gentle and delicious practices to cultivate a feeling of celebration and gratitude for the blessings of Lammas. 

Cacao & Rose Ceremony

We open our day together with the potent and magical weaving of threads, sharing a ceremonial blend of Theobroma Cacao & exquisite essence of Rose. Rose is a magical, ancient and cosmic plant medicine encoding the path of the priestess and the divine spark of life. With five petals, Her cosmic imagery has been observed by ancient Goddess cultures for many thousands of years. The highest frequency flower essence, Rose medicine opens the portals of womb-heart-throat to the alchemy and transformation, allowing us to speak with the language of a pure and unconditional love. We will open our space by communing with the purest essence of Rose, in alchemy with the beautiful medicine of Cacao - opening the heart and clearing the path for magic to unfold.

Women's Circle Ritual

Sharing honest words, songs and making our offerings to the circle we will invite the sacred to enter through the doorway of our hearts. Embrace the warmth of an expanding sisterhood and kindle your inner light with beautiful practices designed to inspire dreaming, softness, community and supportive inner tending. Women’s Circle's are an ancient practice and place for women to be held, heard, seen and supported. We don't have enough spaces where we can speak honestly, authentically and without fear of judgement. When we share in held spaces such as this we often find release in speaking the words aloud, and comfort in hearing our stories reflected back to us in the experiences of other.

We offer our circle as a way to empower and awaken ourselves and to form deep connections with those around us. This supports us to go deeper into the work of rewilding and reclamation, where we can begin to transmute and process our experiences on a somatic, and soul level. A women's circle is a truly sacred space and container for those who attend to be witnessed without fear or judgement. A space free from judgement, competition, demands, expectation, pressure or noise. In circle everyone is equal and we can be together authentically, and in trust. The women's circle is a refuge. A space for all to be together in loving trust, initiating ourselves back into the ancient feminine way.

Expect crystal healing, gentle meditations, sharing and journal prompts to guide you deeper into the circle space. 

Voice Activation & Song Circle (at the stones!)

To close our day together we will glide out to the stones and gather in circle to offer our songs back to the land. This is a form of gratitude and celebration for the bounty and abundance that Mama Earth offers us everyday. Please bring along a drum, rattle or shaker (if you have one!) and an offering of a song or a poem to offer back to the land. 

Optional Picnic at the stones!

As the daylight wanes and the dark of night begins to fall, we gather around the warmth of the fire to share songs, stories and words. Hot cocoa will be served.*

* If you wish to stay for fire songs, please bring along a song or a poem as an offering to share with the group.
