FEASTS AT WEST LEXHAM

At West Lexham we honour the Pagan tradition of marking the Celtic eight-fold wheel of the year with a celebration. The Celtic wheel celebrates significant seasonal points, allowing us to step out of our routine and re-balance ourselves in alignment with the timings of the natural world.

We will hold seasonal workshops, feasts and fire ceremonies, dancing, playing and merriment – all gently and expertly guided to aid us in relaxing resetting and re-energising.

Samhain Celebration of the Ancestors Sunday 31st October 2021

Samhain is the word for November in Gaeilge (Irish) and is thought to be derived from ‘sam-fuin’, meaning end of summer. During this time we have a chance to honour and remember our ancestors.

ALBAN ARTHAN Alban Arthan - the light of Arthur - Death and Rebirth - Wednesday 22nd December 2021
