Seasonal events

We set up a fire in the woods at sunset for the Winter Solstice and the Spring/ Autumn Equinoxes, sharing music and refreshments. Through Mindfulness we take a moment to be aware of the balance of the season. Come and join us to see the woods in darkness and celebrate around a fire in the dark, while candles glimmer all around!

Next event: Woodland Winter Solstice Celebration
