Welcome to The Healing Circle. The Healing Circle is a shared celebration by a group of people who come together to honour the eight old festivals marking the Agrarian year.
This is a chance for us to reclaim their meaning and our links to sun, moon, earth and nature. For the Northern hemisphere, these are: Yule (21/22 December), Imbolc (1/2 February), Ostara (the Spring Equinox – 21/22 March), Beltane (1 May), Litha (Summer Solstice – 21/22 June), Lughnasadh (1/2 August), Modron (the Autumn Equinox – 21/22 September), and finally Samhain (31 October).
Linked to rites of agriculture – to the sowing or to the harvest, to the increasing or diminishing of the light – each of these dates has held a special meaning for generations. Many probably go back to the Neolithic, to the time when our stone-age ancestors first settled in small communities, built shrines, observed the stars and planets, and were totally integrated into the natural rythms of the world.
A Healing Circle
Each Healing Circle will consist of several things : First, I will be sending distance Reiki to each member of our Circle. Second, I will carry out Fire ceremony, and I encourage each member of our Circle to carry out their own ritual, setting aside their own sacred space and sacred time, to connect with both the Season and the Group.
In addition, I will create an original drawing or Mandala for each Circle. A digital copy of this drawing will be sent to each member as a token of your participation via email. Each year I will create a collection of 8 original Mandalas combining photography and drawing, to celebrate each date in our eight-fold calendar.
I invite each member to leave a message, a text or poem, or send an image from their own experience, so that each member of the Circle can leave a trace on the Healing Circle Blog – our experiences can be shared thanks to the GreaterCircle of the web.
As a contribution and exchange for the healing offered, participation in each Healing Circle will be £18. A subscription to join all 8 Healings in the year can also be made for £108 (reduced from £144)
