Enjoy a Free Event
Run throughout the year we gather together in various locations around the northwest, usually on the full moon or to celebrate the Celtic festivals.
Each event has a different emphasis, but it is always about gathering like-minded folk together in community. We have a few videos on this page to give you a flavour.
You can sign up to receive information about our next event on this page. To receive notifications of each of our events as they unfold, please sign up to our newsletter and we will be in touch with joining details in the run up to each Ceremony.
Our Next Free Events
Sunday 5th April Spring
The Monastery Manchester
Seize the Day
Time for action and growth
Now that winter is behind, gently deepen into your life once more, grasp the life force that flows through everything and make it your own.
Along with the daffodils as they trumpet the arrival of the warm days, it's time to spring into life. In this ceremony we will drop into the flower carpeted woodland floor and see what messages await us for our ongoing journey through the year.

Sat 4th July
Arbor Low Stone Circle
Moon of Calming
Relax and Revive yourself
Our Celtic ancestors called this the Moon of Calming so let's call on those energies and bring some rest and relaxation into our lives. Let's lie under the gaze of the full moon and place our ear close to the grace of the Earth.
The guidance we hear through deepening into the quiet places will be taken into a ceremony under the rising full moon.
Sunday 6th December Winter
The Monastery Manchester
Find your quiet space.
As the festival pace of December ramps up, today we are going to take heed of our ancestors and of nature by taking care of ourselves.
The days are cold, the nights are colder. This is a time to retreat, to huddle by the hearth and to conserve strength until the light shines a little brighter.
In this Winter ceremony we are going to drop into that still place deep inside us. From here we are going to seek guidance for the coming weeks to help us move through the turning of the wheel to the lighter evenings once again.

About Our Ceremonies
Creating Ceremony is something we hold up there as one of the most important aspects of our work, and one which we are most passionate about.
There is something incredible which happens when like minded folk gather together with intention to work with the energies at these important times of the year.
As we observe the changing cycles, we can harness the power of the sun and the moon to bring transformation to both our inner and outer World, and it is an essential part of reconnecting us back to our Earth.
As Freddie Silver talks about in his book Legacy of the Gods:
"Unless the myths are preserved, the rites performed and the sites maintained as spirit sanctuaries, the living bond is broken, man and nature are separated and neither man or nature has any assurance of life in the future."
We are incredibly lucky here in the northwest of England to have such amazing sacred sites where we can hold our Ceremonies.
We carry The Monastery Manchester and Arbor Low stone circle close in our hearts, and they are both places which hold so much meaning to us.
This will be our seventh year of creating Ceremonies at these special places, and we are really excited about sharing the experience with you. Anyone from any path, and no path, can join us.
We will walk you through our time together, explaining each aspect and helping you to feel included at every stage, and you don't need to have any experience in taking part in anything like this.
It will be great to have you along.
