Temple of the Feminine Flame

Samhain Ceremony for Women - ONLINE
ONLINE via Zoom
We now welcome Samhain as the next festival on the Celtic Wheel of the year. It is a cross quarter festival following the Autumn Equinox and the final harvest. It also marks the beginning of winter, with this brings an invitation to contemplate the mysteries of life, death & regeneration.
It is a magickal time when the Goddess, who we saw depicted as the fertile mother during the summer months, now transitions into the wise crone.
This time of year we witness the leaves falling, and the dark night welcoming us home to ourselves. This is the beginning of a period which offers us the opportunity for deep rejuvenation and rest. A time to surrender and accept that both light and dark are necessary parts of our evolution.
On Samhaiil that divides the worlds is at it's thinnest. The perfect time of year to connect with our intuition and receive the guidance that will support us through the darker months and it is the most powerful night to practice divination. It is also a time to honour and communicate with our ancestors. Remembering our loved ones in spirit.Also known as the Witches New Year, it is a potent time for personal reflection and intention setting.

Temple of The Feminine Flame Ceremony
Haddon Acre Yurt, Sires Hill, Didcot OX11 9BG
Sisters! Join us in the Temple space! It's time to celebrate the Goddess within, the Divine Feminine and to honour ourselves and each other in a safe, held space.
We have been weaving Magick for the Temple of the Feminine Flame for nearly 2 years. This Ceremony is for the women who walk beside us in this time of reclamation. It's for those who feel ready to hold the torch for themselves and in turn for other sisters. Guiding the way through the darkness together, for the future of the feminine.
In keeping with the seasons and dark time of the year, for this Ceremony we will connect with the mysteries of the Dark Goddess - Keeper of Keys and crossroads and Guardian of the gates. She who holds the torch, lighting the way through the darkness to help us navigate the unknown realms. She who teaches us to honour the silent places within and help us to remember the wisdom that we each carry.
On Nov 16th many celebrate 'The Night of Hecate' - Hecate is a Greek Goddess and the Mother of all Witches. She is associated with witchcraft, magic, the Moon, doorways, and creatures of the night.
With the heart beat of the drum we will connect to the Earth's Centre, and our centre to honor the darkness of the soil, the silence of nature and the wisdom that the dark goddess brings.
Within this Temple Space, we will reconnect with sensual movement and dance - an opportunity for full feminine expression and reclamation of divine Goddess essence.
What can we learn from Her Story? What do we receive as we dance within the dark season? What messages are revealed to us as we hold ourselves in this time of mystery and magick? What thresholds are we faced with as we weave our own realities? In what areas do we feel that we are standing at a crossroads, not knowing which way to turn?

Keepers of the Womb Retreat
Haddon Acre Yurt, Sires Hill, Didcot OX11 9BG
Come, surrender and be held by the warmth of the feminine....
We are inviting women to gather in circle for the day, to re-connect to the wisdom of the goddess within us and all around us. To tune in to our inner landscape and receive the guidance that is available, when we are ready to listen.
Through nourishing practices, ritual and feeling deeply held by the feminine, this is an opportunity to call upon the magick that has been buried for thousands of years. The Priestess mysteries are no longer hidden - it's time to reclaim and remember the power that lies within you as a 'Keeper of the Womb'.
