Welcome to DIVINE SKULLDUGGERY – a light hearted evening to welcome ‘Samhain’ of the Celtic Festival calendar, into our lives –

This is your opportunity to discover what lies beneath the veil and what wisdom you can bring back for the year ahead…
 
At this time of year as winter draws in, the Celts experienced the ‘veils between the worlds’ as thin, allowing us to connect to those beyond our everyday world. –
– We can ask for guidance for the next twelve months…
– We vision our life beyond now…
– We celebrate what we are letting go of, placing this in the ashes of the past.
– We have fun creating masks and dance these new parts of ourself awake – an alternative masked ball!
– We meet the ancestors, welcome their gifts and send any away that are not in alignment with our growing self.
– We eat, drink and make merry, meeting each other in a new way.
 
Our plan for the evening includes: 
  • Ceremonial cacao to begin our journey – a heart opening start..
  • Vision quest with drumming and dancing to learn what to let go of and what to bring into our lives in the next twelve months.
  • Create a mask to bring our new self to life.
  • Dance in masked glory to the beat of the drum and mother gaia’s heart beat – masks on or off!
  • Eat, drink and be merry – STRICTLY NO ALCOHOL OR DRUGS
We ask each person to bring a contribution to the feast.
 
Your facilitators for the evening –

  • A deep enquiry into how we can reclaim our birthright as women in this world
  • How we find our place now on this beautiful planet and in our bodies,
  • How we gift ourselves life and truly feel alive as women today,
  • Sharing in the growth of a new way of being which acknowledges, allows and reveres the deep feminine way.

With movement and touch, meditation and journeying, sharing, art work and journaling, we weave a deep and safe circle for us to discover our true being and relinquish old wounds we no longer need.

  • “I was drawn instinctively to Anna’s group, even though I had not been to anything like it before. I’ve not been disappointed and leave feeling connected, nourished, and revitalised. Her groups have made a big difference to my life.
  • Anna is so welcoming, and the way she leads us on our journeys into ourselves, is very gentle, but effective. She makes me feel very safe in the space and I love her guided meditations”
  • ‘My experience of this work was deep and profoundly moving’
  • ‘Anna’s fully interactive style allows you to go to new depths and heights of yourself, whilst exploring your own path and connecting and sharing with others in a beautiful, trusting way..’ AS
  • ‘I found the day inspiring and ..emotionally freeing.’
  • ‘Anna combines softness, love and support with an amazingly perceptive focus..’ MC
  • ‘Every now and again, if you are lucky, you come across a talented and most gracious healer, Anna fits this bill perfectly’. T

  • I have found my experiences in these workshops led by Anna to be deeply transformative and inspirational. I would highly recommend this kind of quality time with yourself and others to everybody in the whole world! M
