Seanachais – The Dreamweavers

The Seanachais were the storytellers of our Ancestral roots. Stories change the world – that is their magic. They were makers of great enchantment and fascination in the art of creating living worlds, that the listeners could be brought to, journey in, and experience. The Seanachais wove dreams. They created patchworks of lives that could be experienced through all senses.

Storytelling is an art of true magic, making the impossible possible and the improbable probable. To be Seanachais was to have a spirit connection with the breath, soul and song of the world so that that song could be sung to and reminded to those who could not hear.

This will be an experience to evoke and tune the inner storyteller to the song of the world, and open their awareness to bring the magic of the Traditional Stories alive.

Things to Bring: Light refreshments will be available, please bring lunch.
Bring comfortable clothing and a rug, blanket or shawl to wrap around you.
Please also bring a power object to have beside you when telling stories, and an object from Nature or that finds you to tell a story.

A certificate affirming Dreamweaver status will be given at the end of the weekend.

UntitledThe Craft of Grief

Summer leaves and winter comes
Romance is over but the photo is still on the table
Walk away from what’s left behind, yet are still burdened
When the life is gone, life still stays behind.

The soul longs for unity

The human heart longs for gathering
By these we are trapped, possessed of the other and by the other
We are haunted in our hearts by ghosts of longing.

For two days we will not just explore longing, we will immerse ourselves in its haunting, its seduction, its desire, its suffering.
We will find that longing and reshape it into an instrument of joy and guidance.
This is not a grief workshop; this is a joy and practical workshop.
We will consider;
Breaking bad news, preparing for death, tending the dying, grieving and resolution
Through application, role play, soulful prayer and ceremony, we will lift ourselves from the chains of attachment and put on the threads of connection.

10 for 10.30am – 5pm

IMG_4606.pngThe Ember Circle

The world struggles, We struggle

Without rest or pause a torrent of words and images on violence assails us
Violence to each other, to ourselves, to animals, to the environment
It seems that we are powerless against such a war beyond us

Sometimes we speak
Sometimes we hope
Sometimes we pray
Sometimes we take action
And sometimes we pass ourselves by and let be.

The Ember Circle is prayer in action,
A shared prayer for peace within ourselves,
A shared labyrinth walk to face our passing ourselves,
That our hearts can be warriors, who will bring an end to the war beyond us.

The Ember Circle is to be a seed of hope to be passed and shared, so another fire can be lit and another circle of embers created, until the circle of Embers connects as many warrior hearts as possible

Saturday June 10th, 10am – 4pm

Lions Bay Village Hall
Light lunch provided
$25 per person, plus any donation towards the children and village supported by the SCGM
Please bring flowers and prayer offerings (that can be burnt) for the prayer wheel.

dark & light arrows 3Arrows of Light & Dark; Shamanic Retreat

This ceremonial retreat is two powerful days of self enlightenment.

It will open closed eyes to the primal wounds of our souls and the pain that we have endured through those woundings;
It will enable us to bring healing to those wounds and to love ourselves for who we really are.
It is an initiation from the dark place of our psyche to the light of our compassion.
This is an intervention by the ancestral spirits that will change your picture of self and allow you to paint the picture that was meant to be. But commit yourself to your Self!

The Role of the Fire Walker
in Animist Sagh’ic Tradition

The Fire is the First Ancestor who came to change us and carry us home. The Sagh’ic honour the flame as a paternal spirit who carries us into a deeper relationship with the flames which reside in the hearths and forges of our hearts and the hearts of all who live upon this earth.
It is not that we walk on fire, it is that the fire carries the flames of our hearts.

Price TBA dependent on residential or non residential
