Course overview

Each week, we’ll delve into the traditions of our Celtic ancestors and consider how they might have interacted with the changing seasons. We’ll ask you to reflect on a specific emotion that suits the season and build on your previous work. We will guide you in exploring how this emotion relates to your own life.

On sunny days, we’ll venture into nature to explore the Celtic concept of reading the land omens to seek wisdom from nature, focusing on the chosen emotion. On cold or rainy days, we’ll gather in the Community Room of the medieval style George Inn, to immerse ourselves in Celtic folklore. Here we’ll delve into the Celtic Bard tradition of poetry, both in writing and sharing, as a means to explore the chosen emotion.

Join us to connect with nature, meet new people, and enhance your mental and physical wellbeing through poetry, folklore and intuition.
