Nature works in cycles and the circle is an archetypal symbol of this. Mid summer is a powerful time of the year when the sun is at it’s strongest as we begin to turn towards winter. In this Summer Solstice Wheel of the Year, Create, Play, and Reflect Workshop, we will spend a day re-wilding and connecting to the natural high growth energy of this time of year. Starting with a sharing circle to reflect on the inner growth we are in the midst of and how we will consolidate this, as the year turns
We will gather natural materials from Tyninghamme Woods and Beach and together create a Solstice Celtic Wheel, which will embody our individual journey, held in a collective artwork. We will close with a sharing circle (with song, ceremony and sound) to offer to the natural world and receive sustenance from it. There will also be time for creating an individual totem to take home.
Please bring lunch to share and a flask of something warm to drink. If needed, we will have a fire to sit around for the sharing and I will have my campervan, so we can make warm drinks and heat soup up. Please layer up in warm, clothing and bring swimming kit if you would like to swim in the sea. Any additional materials provided. No previous making experience necessary.
