ANAM CARA Mondays 7 pm (not bank holidays) on Zoom (no Anam Cara meeting on August 16th or 30th)
A gathering of souls who sense they are on a journey; for companionship and support.
We begin the session with a check-in and the creation of sacred space, (with meditation, a reading or silence). Then, maybe with the help of some questions, we will share from our hearts and witness the sharing of others.
(also known as Lughnasadh)
Monday August 2nd 2021 7pm on Zoom
At Lammas summer days are at their hottest and our countryside can be parched and dry. Many flowers have been and gone, leaving behind seed heads and fruit. The colours of the countryside are the browns of dried grasses, dotted with mourning purples, whites and blood scarlet poppies. The days are noticeably shorter; although the weather may still be hot and the time of year means “holidays” for many people, the Sun is dropping and the year is beginning to die. Fruits and berries are ripening, and the first of the corn is being cut. Lammas is the time of the first harvest.
Our Ancestors would have celebrated the beginning of the harvest season, and so we too, though not so closely in touch with the countryside, will meet to declare our gratitude for the sustenance of the Earth. Please bring a seasonal reading, song, poem, story, or recipe… and if you are growing herbs, fruit, vegetables etc. tell us about your produce. Have a candle to light to open sacred space and wear something colourful if you wish.
Monday 16th August – Sunday 22nd August 2021
Cae Mabon, Fachwen, Llanberis, Gwynedd. LL55 3HB
Six days (from dinner on Monday 16th to after breakfast on Sunday 22nd August 2021) in glorious Snowdonia, Wales at the wonderful retreat centre Cae Mabon with its eco-structures in an Oak wood beside a rushing stream and lake.
GreenSpirit have held an event at Cae Mabon almost each year for well over 20 years. Our “Wild Week” has changed over time and in 2021 it is evolving to be more of a retreat than it has been recently. We will have (plant-based) evening meals cooked for us and we expect that participants will want to fully engage with activities so that we can share at soul level; and embody our connection with each other, the spirits of the land, and the elements.
