Winter is coming and as we slip into darkness in the northern hemisphere The Hedge School presents Beyond the Veil – a trilogy of online experiences in response to Samhain, the season of Death and Renewal.
This ancient pagan fire festival has its roots in Ireland and shares similarities with the indigenous Mexican festival Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), and went on to inspire Halloween and All Hallows Eve.
You are invited to join us for a deep journey of exploration through story, song, music and communal ritual.
Beyond The Veil is a call to dive into the creative cycle of life, death and rebirth – the great trifecta at the source of all existence.
Join us over three consecutive Sundays, when we will gather at the place between worlds, where the Crone tends to her cauldron, stirring her sacred alchemical brew.
This three-part alchemical journey is led by three carriers of Crone wisdom; Marian Dunlea (Jungian Analyst, Somatics Practitioner & Author of BodyDreaming in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma, Riane Eisler (Systems Scientist, Cultural Historian, Futurist & Author of The Chalice and the Blade) and Vandana Shiva (Environmental Activist, Food Sovereignty Advocate & Author of Ecofeminism . We will also receive the musical gifts of Ceara Conway (Vocal & Visual Artist), Leah Song (Singer-songwriter, Poet, Activist) and Julianna Bloodgood (Theatre-maker, Vocalist, Performer).
