Celebrate the midpoint between winter and summer with special guest David Spangler
We would love you to join us, as we celebrate this deeper meaning of the Spring Equinox
Our host Katherine Collis is joined at this special time by David Spangler, a Findhorn Fellow and one time co-director of the Findhorn Community, who was instrumental in initiating spiritual education into the Foundation. David is now head of the Lorian Association.
Katherine and David will begin our Spring Equinox celebration with a simple ritual and a time of reflection. They’ll create a sacred space for you to explore how your inner life aligns with the seasonal cycles and the sacred within the land where you live, wherever you are in the world.
We will write poetry together, practice journaling, create artwork and dream. We will build community, sharing insights and experiences with one another, and listen, as we deepen into peace, prayer and pilgrimage and, through that, further discover our purpose within the whole.
This session, which can be enjoyed on its own, is part of the Spirit of Iona: Wisdom of the Celtic World for our Time series. We will learn about and attune to the sacred Isle of Iona – her geography, historic writings, poetry, art, music, myths and legends, as well as the traditions of creating blessings and prayers.
Pricing and dates
