An Introduction to Spirit Horse village: Sweat Lodge, Storytelling & Shiva Breath A welcoming to you, to the many who have had this pilgrimage to Spirit Horse seated in their bodies for many a year. For the ones who have recently heard about us, and for those who are simply longing to find home. 13th-15th July 2018 This event is gentle, deep, and playful. Friday evening we meet at 8pm in the Men's Lodge for opening circle. We will go on to go deep with all of the original ancestors; the elements, in a purification Sweat Lodge Ceremony. On Saturday, we will have a guided group meditation and Shiva breath workshop, followed by a majestic walk to the waterfalls and cave. On the evening the bard will emerge in the village, with a story touching on the origins of the world, followed by music and dancing until we are all so full with the simple juices of life, we slump to our beds and rest, fulfilled and immersed in play. On Sunday we will have a closing circle, and you can wander easy for a few hours before departing. This weekend will give you a taste of the ceremonial village, as a lively and sweet invitation to explore that which your spine knows well. Come and bring all that you are and meet the rewilding valley, the people who honour it, and the part of you that is longing to know your tribe. £120 | Booking direct via email: Annabelle.email@example.com £80 | Community contributors
