"In this workshop, we’ll discover how to bring our ancestors closer and connect with the ones that can help us manifest a cycle of transformation. We will also experience how the autumnal descent into darkness can nurture, empower and heal us."

Celebrating Our Ancestors is a weekend retreat at the magical Hazel Hill Wood near Salisbury, 2-4 November (Friday 7pm – Sunday 4pm), hosted by Maddy Harland and Marcos Frangos, and supported by Indo-European medicine woman, Agatha Manouche. 

Half way between Autumn and Winter, Samhain marks the time when we begin the slowing down process. Like the leaves falling from the trees, we let go of whatever is no longer needed. “Samhain, coinciding with Halloween, is when the veil between the worlds of the living and spirit is at its thinnest,” Maddy Harland, author and Editor of Permaculture Magazine elucidates. “It’s the time when our ancestors are most present. In this workshop, we’ll discover how to bring our ancestors closer and connect with the ones that can help us manifest a cycle of transformation. We will also experience how the autumnal descent into darkness can nurture, empower and heal us, and we’ll prepare to birth new seeds for the coming year.” 

Operated by a charitable trust, Hazel Hill Wood contains sacred circles, unique, hand-made off-grid buildings and other special outdoor spaces. Created 30 years ago by natural happiness author, Alan Heeks, the centre runs courses and charitable programmes in resilience and wellbeing with an emphasis on learning from nature.
