Honouring the ancient Fire Festival of the Celtic Tribes, we will in our own way dance and celebrate the turning of the wheel towards the winter.
Samhain (know today as Halloween) was considered to be the end of the old year and the beginning of the new. A time when the veils between the worlds are thin, a time to reflect and give thanks.
We will take in the qualities of this time of year out in the woods, dance on the land and in a wood heated yurt, hold ritual the thatched house of the ancestors.
Join us to welcome the warmth of community, the spirit of the times, the dance of our hearts and the love we have for our lives.
"Just as the ancients danced to call upon the spirits in nature, we too can dance to find the spirits within ourselves that have been long buried and forgotten." ~ Anna Halprin
New Year invites us to listen, to watch and receive, visioning a path and embodying a new beginning for the year to come. Designed to give space and time for you to slow down, reflect and renew, we will welcome the stillness and darkness of winter into our dreaming body and attune to the gifts of the season. With quiet time out on the land, creativity in workshops and warmth in community, we will use the dynamic processes of dance, ritual and art to honour, celebrate and re-create. Neil Pinnock will be you guide offering daily 5Rhythms workshops, Ritual Theatre and acts of transformation. Supported by the community and by the team you will be nourished with plenty of laughter, time in silence, stories by the fire, hearty food and good company. Where else would you prefer to be at this gateway to 2020?
