There’s something quite magical about a Quest isn’t there.
It’s wider than a search, deeper than an adventure and longer than a journey. The Quest has been one of humanity’s uniting factors for millenia and during this workshop we will be joining our ancestors in the seeking of myth, magic and mystery.
Clues lie in the hidden places. The meaning of that which matters is woven intricately with the dna of ourselves and of the land on which we tread.
Since the dark ages the powers that pull the strings of our society have done their best to destroy this wisdom, fearing that the truth will unseat their craving for power. Yet more of us seek it out, and more of us are slowly piecing together the tender shards of ancient callings.
Myth, magic and mystery hold the keys and on this weekend Samhain retreat we’ll commune with the ancient sites of Derbyshire, breathe life into the old stories, consult with the Underworld oracles and journey on the drum to our guides and guardians of place.
Overview of the weekend:
This weekend retreat is running over Samhain, that time of year when one Celtic year ends and another begins, in a fantastic space where we can enjoy community shared living, with roaring fires and comfy sofas.
It’s a time of great connection with the Otherworlds and great inner and outer transformation as we explore the quest for deeper connection and inner knowledge of the magical Earth-path.
Location and venue:
Unstone Grange, Unstone, Derbyshire
