The next signature Findhorn Experience Week starts 20th February | Learn More

Join us on Samhain on Sunday 30th October

Explore who you’ve been and who you are becoming at this transitional time of Samhain with guest Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D.

Archetypes, dreams and synchronicities provide depth and direction, especially during times of transition when one phase of life shifts into the next. When soul and purpose come together, when we follow a path with heart, then we are on course.

— Jean Shinoda Bolen

Jean is a psychiatrist, jungian analyst and an internationally known author and speaker. She has written many books, amongst these is ‘Crossing to Avalon’, which depicts her journey to Glastonbury, Findhorn and the Isle of Iona, uncovering gems of Celtic wisdom which speaks to the threshold moments of our time.

What does Iona have to teach about our own transitions?

Iona has always been known as a place ‘where the veils are thin’, where there is not much between ‘this world and the other’, an island ‘between heaven and earth’. Likewise as we celebrate Samhain (better known to us as Halloween) we honour that time of the Celtic year when the divisions between the old and new year dissolve. Be with us as we cross the threshold into what was once celebrated as the festival of entering ‘no time’.

Jean Bolen

How are you spending the energies of your life?

Take time to pause between what has been and what will be. Use this festival as a moment of choice in your life. What are the gifts of spirit and vision that come to us, inspire us, guide us when we find ourselves standing in-between, when we go beyond the everyday sense of time and touch the eternal, connecting with realms of angels, archetypes and ancestors.

During this session we will further delve into the Celtic understanding of the three worlds and how our experiences of liminal time and places open the doors to our souls and transform us. We will explore how this journey of personal transformation will help us navigate these days of collective transformation.
