12 September: Building a Medicine Circle

Will you answer the call to join your hearts with ours in building a Medicine Circle honouring the Gateways of Life in the “Celtic” tradition with Andrew Steed?

The Medicine Circle will host the Wild Hunt, a gathering led by Andrew at Cherry Tree Lodge 27 October – 1 November, to sing home lost and displaced souls, sweep the worlds clean and to stand up for all life on the blue moon, the Samhain moon, of October. This is the time of the “Celtic” New Year, a time when we enter the dark half of the year.

The Circle will  honour Spirit and will be a sacred centre for exploring and expanding an indigenous medicine way that celebrates the ancestors of Alba, the British Isles and Ireland.

Although this is not strictly a teaching day, it will be educational and deeply spiritual as the circle will be built with intending and a huge amount of heart. Each Gateway represents different aspects of life-death-rebirth and we will honour the attributes of each of the directions that lead to the centre — the place of Sovereignty, of freedom, of oneness.

Andrew Steed, author of 10 books the lastest being “Children of the Evolution”, has built many medicine circles across the world leading the Wild Hunt in five different countries since he stepped into a role as a shamanic teacher in 1996.

You are welcome to arrive from 9am for a 9.30 start.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

We will complete when the circle is finished at around 4 or 5pm.

Andrew is offering the event on a donation basis. Funds raised will be made available to the Cherry Tree Lodge Retreat Fund. You can find out more about the fund and donate here or you can make a donation on the day.

  • If you have a small vial of water from a loch, holy well, a river, sea or any other water source then please bring it for an offering into the circle.
  • A clootie, a small cloth strip of cotton material — measuring approximately 1 inch by 18 inches, that is torn from material that is special to you in some way. These strips are part of the “Celtic” tradition of prayer ties.
