Arbor Low Hunters Blood Moon Ceremony

October 18, 2019

The full moon last weekend called us to Arbor Low stone circle and we bathed under its energies for the evening.

Braving rain and gale force winds as we made our journey through the Derbyshire Dales that afternoon, we gathered with likeminded travellers for a picnic and full moon ceremony. We were rewarded with a clear sky through which we could watch the sun set and the moon rise.

Together we set intentions out for the coming year as we move towards the long nights and colder months.

We have captured our adventure in this video which we would love to share with you.

Watch this space for announcements for our 2020 programme of ceremonies which are free to attend and take place at sacred sites around the northwest of England.
