Join our informal gathering to celebrate Beltane, the Celtic fire festival of fertility. We will connect with the energies of the season, love and creativity, and celebrate with poetry, music, guided meditation, circle dancing and more. Please feel free to bring poems, songs, etc. to share with the group. After the circle celebration we will share food.

Trees unite Heaven and Earth – they draw up the water from the ground and capture the light from the sun, to give both food and oxygen to the rest of the living world, as was first discovered by the Unitarian chemist Joseph Priestley (1733 – 1804). In addition, trees are universal symbols of wisdom and life in the great spiritual traditions, from the Garden of Eden in Genesis to the Norse Yggdrasil, from Shamanism to Taoism, uniting the energies of Spirit and Matter. They may thus symbolise the union of our personal and higher selves in our daily practice – ‘Tree for two, and two for Tree’ perhaps?
Led by Mike Rutter. Starts 10.30 am. All welcome.
Join us for an uplifting evening of simple song chants from a variety of world traditions interspersed with periods of meditative silence. No experience of singing or meditation required. The acoustics in the space are simply wonderful. All welcome to join in or just to listen and soak up the relaxing atmosphere. Please feel free to bring simple song chants to share with the group.
Led by Laura Dobson. Starts 7.30 pm. All welcome.
