Autumn Equinox Immersion: 1 Day Women’s Pilgrimage

Event details

Web Page
Join us on this Equinox tide to honour the turning of the seasons for a pilgrimage and sacred healing immersion through the ancient woods of St Helen’s, Hastings. A time to gather and reflect as women during this momentous year of 2020 to recalibrate, journey, heal and find our centre together before the winter tide is upon us. This will be a time of connecting with ancient lore and nature allies of this land to assist us on our journey ~ In the form of the Yew, the tree of eternity and a beloved wisdom keeper of this isle. And with Elen of the Ways, an indigenous goddess of Sovereignty of these lands who’s name means ‘shining light’, the pre-Christian predecessor to St Helen. For it is in this tide of transitioning from Autumn to winter that we can call upon her assistance in ‘shining a light’ on our paths and showing us the Way. We will spend time with a wonderful spring, which some say is one of the most healing springs of this isle. To honour the Equinox together with physical spring clearing, a water ceremony and sacred water bathing. Allowing ourselves to receive deeply from the waters and elements of the woods in giving ourselves full permission to let go of all that has gone before us this year, healing and preparing for the winter tide ahead. For it is in these times as women when we gather that we can step into our birthright as healers and creators - where incredible healing is possible…And in dreaming and anchoring a new world into being. Wonderful warming, seasonally spiced alchemical feasts in the form of lunch, elixirs, snacks, hot potions and a full 3 course dinner will be provided on this pilgrimage retreat. Locally sourced and vegan, hosted by chef extraordinaire Angus Denoon. You will literally have your tastebuds, heart and minds blown by such culinary delights
