Witches New Year – A Samhain Retreat

Friday 25th – Sunday 27th October 2024

 

Retreats Black Moon Botanica Edinburgh

 

The first sabbat in the wheel of the year, Samhain, is also known as Witches New Year. With the harvest over, we descend into the darkness of winter, the Crone phase of the year, and the time of magick and shadow work.

 

Join me for three days as we embrace the turn of the wheel and use the enveloping darkness to deep-dive into the realms of subconscious and shadow. Together we’ll explore the old ways of our ancestors, grounded in nature by day and around the hearth by nightfall. We’ll craft candles and potions, we’ll explore grimoire and altar creations, and weave magick together. This retreat will serve as a safe container to start exploring your shadow self, through a personal astrology reading. We’ll connect to the elements in the ancient woods nearby, and develop practices such as the art of hedge riding, to carry you through the winter months. We’ll also take part in a beautiful cacao ceremony, with a nourishing, restorative practice.

 

When & Where: October 25th – 27th 2024 at Boghall House in Milngavie, just outside Glasgow. Arrival 11am, 2pm departure⁣⁣
