What’s new – Spring 2023
Annual Gathering 2023 – July 20th – 23rd – Green and Away, Bransford, Worcestershire.
This year’s theme,Weaving Dreams of Community, encourages us to attend to the diversity of the web of life and death on Earth. By finding opportunities to explore, grieve, and celebrate the difference that makes this animal, human, fungal, plant, and elemental web meaningful, we can cultivate a more robust sense of unity and help bring reparative justice to all.

Fireside Sharing – Imbolc and the beginning of Spring
We will have our first fireside sharing of 2023 on Wednesday 1st February 7-9pm. These events are a way of nurturing the UK-wide ecopsychology community. Fireside host for the evening will be Robbie Breadon. Please bring offerings resonant with this phase of the annual cycle including poetry, song, stories and music to share on zoom. The central theme will be Imbolc and the beginning of Spring and everything that this means. A time of emergence when farmers are preparing the fields, fisherfolk repair their nets and ready their boats. A time of priming ourselves for new adventures. Imbolc is also a time of cleansing creating space for the new. In the far North it would be a time of thawing and flowing of meltwater. With water there is the anticipation of new life. We see the first flowers and with them the invitation to wake up and reengage. It is therefore a time of new movement, dreaming and the the inspiration to initiate new projects.The period of lambing begins, along with frog-spawning, nest making and incubating of eggs. In the Celtic calendar, it also marks a celebration of Brigid and the tradition of weaving of rush crosses. You are also very welcome to participate yet not step up to read, sing or play. Please save the date and confirm your intention to join us by emailing Robbie which will help with planning the evening.
