Beltane – April 28th- May 2nd (bank holiday) 2017
Retreat on Holy Isle, off west coast of Scotland
Holy Isle, off Arron on the West Coast of Scotland, has a long spiritual heritage stretching back many centuries. Its old Gaelic name was Inis Shroin, meaning Island of the Water Spirit and tales are told of kelpies and selkies, shapeshifting Scotish deities, off its shores. It has an ancient healing spring and the cave where the Celtic hermit monk, St Molaise dwelt in the 6th century. and purportedly performed healing miracles. It was a place of prilgrimage-there are also Viking rune markings and evidence of a 13th century Christian monastery.
Today, it is owned by the Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhists; on its hillsides wild horses, goats and sheep graze freely, whilst the garden of the Retreat Centre for World Peace is a place of beauty, and deep tranquility, where food for the delicious vegetarian meals is grown
This island has a very special magic -a wild and sacred energy- yet it is a place of deep peace and healing.
It is the perfect place to conjure the Goddess; a unique opportunity to be immersed in the ancient power of the sacred feminine, to delight in the laughter of women and to be seen and honoured for who you truly are.
Working with Goddess archetypes from all cultures and traditions, we gather in sacred circle to conjure the ancient faces of the feminine.
Through the timeless wisdom, beauty and magic encountered in nature and ourselves, you will be transformed.
May 1st is traditionally the Celtic festival of Beltane- a time of union revering the fertility of the land, and the fecundity of life.
As your ancestors did, you too can be part of a profound ceremony at the Holy Island Spring and be cleansed and restored around a sacred Beltane fire.
You will emerge from this mystical journey revived and rejuvenated, with a fresh perspective and renewed energy for life.
The retreat begins at 4pm on Friday and culminates in a powerful ritual on May Day evening, the retreat ends on Tuesday morning, in good time for ferries to the mainland. .
