Come and sing sacred songs from around the world. We sing in sacred space as an offering of gratitude for this beautiful life we’re all in together. Sing, drum, clap, dance and join in any way you like. Please bring a listening heart and your instrument if you play.

We will give thanks and pay our respects to a divine pair of magical plants – the all-healing Mistletoe and the sacred Cacao. Brewing and blending them into our cauldron, venerating this sacred marriage of medicines, this inspiring confluence of wisdoms and strengthening seasonal tonic of high degree. Following libations and consummations of this unique sacrament we will share songs and dances, circling in community, at this time of Beltane -the fires of Bel – the month of May, celebrating the greening of the land and the May blossom. We will make prayers in a ceremony which honours our past whilst clearing space to make room for what is coming.

The Yoga class is an opportunity to dive deep into your body using mindful movement and breath to open up the energy pathways to revitalise yourself, release accumulated stress and tension and help quieten the mind.

The dances of Brittany can be entrancing, communal, romantic and infectious! Brittany is full of Druidic lore, woodland and lake magic, megalithic monuments and rich folk traditions. Community dances are still regular events, where old and young all turn up to move together to the sound of the pipes and song. In old times of earthen floors, when a new family’s house was completed, folks would gather together and make special dances inside to firm the floor and fill the abode with music, song and celebration. The dances are wide and varied, grounded in lyric and rhythm of a particular Celtic flavour.
