Facilitator: Kate Dineen
The mystery of fire speaks directly to us and reminds us of our ancient selves, the calling of our ancestors whose wisdom we carry in our DNA. In prehistoric times fire was used locally for warmth, cooking; upon beacons to warn of danger; and in ceremonies.

In the Fire Ceremonies at Hawkwood, we stand in circle as Kate leads us into a profound experience where we learn to ‘exchange energies’ with the fire, celebrate the full moon, the Celtic wheel, and come together to cleanse ourselves, pray, and offer our thanks to mother earth, sun, moon, stars and all of creation.
We begin with a guided meditation around the fire pit. We connect with and call upon the forces of nature, before lighting the fire. This is a potent liminal time to honour our ancestors and renew our relationship with them. A safely held space to shed heaviness, offer gratitude and prayer.
Participants come away feeling grounded, cleansed, lighter and more centred.
Meet by the filter ponds below Hawkwood House.
Bring a Prayer Stick (this is a stick which you find and can decorate if you wish) & Drums/Rattles for the Ceremony; drink, snack, song to share after.
The event is £7/£5 adults; children free. Please bring cash to give to Kate directly on the evening, or make alternative arrangements with her.
