Our Spring Equinox Gathering will be a celebration of the return of our own light & energy and the richness of our internal garden, awakening now the hibernation season is over. The veil between the spiritual and physical world is thinner at the equinoxes so it is a time when we can receive visions, a time to come out of your cocoon, cleanse out stagnant energy within the self and home, and plant seeds of new beginnings. Connecting with our deeper longing, visions and purpose does not require that one knows the answers to all of our questions, because it’s only in not knowing that we can be truly receptive and it’s only in being receptive that we can truly discover, learn, evolve and transform.
We set an intention for transformation, catalysed by wondrous workshops, sacred ceremony and mellifluous music. Practise tools for self-care and healing, raise your consciousness around the latest social, eco and sacred activist issues, and learn about cutting-edge discoveries in medicine, psychology, spirituality and philosophy. There’s Dance Medicine on Saturday night and music from Sophie Barker and DJ La Plage. Meet the contributors and participants on zoom or join the Wider Horizons Facebook group to watch.
Workshops and entertainment run from Saturday at 10am to Sunday at 11pm.
The Ostara Spring Equinox Transformational Gathering is being held online. Imagine an area by a beautiful lake within a gathering. Online festivals are a new adventure for these times, creating connection through the arts, music and sharing what inspires us, whoever we are, not limited by space and time. We will host live music, workshops, talks, debates, inspiring stories, films, storytelling, wild crafts, Indigenous elders and lots more. In the Zooms you can interact with the contributors, musicians and fellow participants connecting with old friends and new. You can also join our FB Group to access the event.
We are asking for donations to support the artists and the team at Wider Horizons who give a lot to make this all happen. You can make donations here. www.justgiving.com/fundraising/whostara Donations go to Wider Horizons and the contributors via the Earth Community Trust. 🌎
The workshops are designed to help you open new parts of yourself. The contributors include lecturers, shamans, artists and other practitioners from a variety of healing disciplines. You are able to choose from a diverse programme that includes sacred activism, nature connection, expressive dance, individual and group healing, yoga, meditation and sacred singing. As well as learning new skills, you will have opportunities to explore questions about who we are and the mysteries of consciousness and our relationship with the physical world. Alternative views of the nature of the mind and the universe will be presented.
We invite everyone to connect with each other as an expression of nature.
Evening celebrations will involve music, singing, drumming and dancing. Bring instruments, drums, percussion and dancing feet.
