Earth Rhythms is back with a Beltane ritual to connect with the powerful fertile energies of Spring and the approaching Summer, an opportunity to mark what is emerging in your life, be seen and witnessed in your hopes, dreams and desires. Step through the Beltane portal and connect with the instinctive life force bubbling up all around you as we come together in community to reconnect with the cyclical energy of the natural world and align our lives with its rhythms.
In this evening event we will explore:
- Various Beltane mythology & archetypes
- Connecting with the topic of sexuality
- Movement and embodiment
- Ritual inspired by rites of passage
- Connecting as a community around cyclical living.
The power of cyclical living
Our lives are a voyage of learning to become more fully ourselves, more connected to our innate wholeness. Nature wants to support us in the transformations that take place on this journey towards wholeness from birth to death and the earth’s rhythms can hold us, in all of the fractal cycles and spirals of growth, death and rebirth that we move through as humans. Connecting with the wheel of the year in this way can provide a powerful pathway to move through our lives, learning to release and generate as we grow, bloom, change and decay throughout the journey of our lifetimes.
About Earth Rhythms
Earth Rhythms is here to turn us towards the natural world and eco-centric ways of being through practices of embodiment, ritual, cyclical living and nature connection by working with the Celtic Wheel of the Year and the 8 Shields cultural healing map. A space to remember our belonging and wholeness as we sink into the regenerating rhythms of nature as a way to connect more deeply with yourself, each other and the more than human world.
‘A great space in which to move towards higher acceptance of the mind and body's cycles, and increase awareness of how they are integrated within the wider body of the Earth.’ - Maz, previous participant
The Wheel of The Year
The Wheel of the Year is a map that was created through thousands of years of observation when humans shifted from primarily hunter gatherer lifestyles to agricultural. There is very little traditional ecological knowledge left available to those of us who reside on these islands - The British Isles, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Celtic (or pagan) Wheel of the Year contains much information, rituals, traditions and wisdom that would have existed in the cultures on these islands.
The Wheel of the Year can offer us the space to connect with our ongoing cyclical journey but it can also support us becoming more fully ourselves as it encompasses a diversity of qualities that we need to live in a culture of wholeness. We need more humans and human cultures to embody the qualities of wholeness and healing so that we can benefit the earth and its ecosystems through returning into a reciprocal relationship with the natural living world.
‘I am taking so much insight and curiosity about the seasons away with me. I am also stepping into a new movement practice as a result of the course, feeling an eagerness to tap into the cyclical and innate wisdom of my body’ - Anna
‘A deeply nourishing time that was over in the blink of an eye. There was a real sense of connectedness between the group no matter that we were participating digitally. Alana held us all very gently and shared lots of helpful personal insight.’ - Previous Participant
