August 10, 2017 to August 13, 2017
Jhenah will be presenting three workshops at Harvest Gathering 2017:
A place of pilgrimage since time immemorial, the unique transformational energies of the Glastonbury landscape have always been considered sacred. Believed by some to be the heart chakra of the planet, the place where ancient Avalon may have once dwelt still attracts spiritual seekers from all over the world. Together, we will explore the symbolic significance of major sites in the Glastonbury landscape, discuss their mythic and historic context, and highlight their relevance to the spiritual pilgrim of today. Accompanied by drumming, we will have an opportunity to experience a trance posture journey to the Holy Isle in a safe, sacred, and supported environment.
Entering the Cauldron of Ceridwen: Walking the Path of Avalon
A foundational overview of the Avalonian Tradition, we will draw upon the rich heritage of Celtic British mythology and the vibrant powers of its Sacred Landscape to explore the Avalonian Cycle of Healing — and effective paradigm of inner transformation found encoded in the initiatory symbolism of the Cauldron of Ceridwen. Discover how to reclaim the Quest for the Holy Vessel of Wisdom andInspiration and use it to enliven our Inner Landscapes with its healing power.
Come share authentic devotional practices in honor of thrice-blessed Brigid, beloved Goddess of the fires of creation. We will hear stories in honor of She who aids in the birth of children, guides our hands at the forge of art, and blesses our tongues with the gifts of poetry. We will lift our voices in song as we craft traditional Brigid’s crosses, spend time in connection with waters drawn directly from Her holy well at Kildare, and receive a spark of Imbas gifted from the source of Her eternal flame in Ireland which has been tended by the nuns of Solas Bhride since 1993.
