Spirit of Iona: Samhain/Halloween
Join us for session five of the Spirit of Iona series as we celebrate Samhain, known more commonly in its form as Halloween, with Katherine Collis.
We would love you to join us in a celebration and exploration of the deeper aspects of Samhain
Facilitated by Katherine Collis and guests, Samhain (more commonly known in its form today as Halloween) will begin with a simple ritual and a time of reflection.
Katherine will 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 continue to build community together through sharing insights and experiences with one another as we pause to reflect, dream, journal and deepen into the spirit of peace, prayer and pilgrimage – further discovering our lives as a blessing within the whole.
We will also 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.
