Join us for a weekend of song, dance, harvesting, gardening, learning, visioning, prayer, thanksgiving and celebration as we ready ourselves to turn inwards to embrace the mysteries and hidden gifts of the darkness. Our focus will be on the garden, and giving thanks for the blessings of the harvest.
Once again, this will be a co-created space in nature …we eat, talk, dance, play, share, create, vision and workshop together, and all offer our unique skills and magic to the space. Performers, musicians, fire dancers, dreamers, gardeners, dancers,healers, teachers all welcome!
Friday night will be opening circle and a ritual of thanksgiving and fire ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Harvest festival.
Saturday night will be a Harvest Ball where we dress up in Autumn colours as nature spirits to play, feast, dance, play music and make merry around the bonfires. Please bring your instruments, voices and bare feet in the spirit of co-creation.
During the day there will be time for play and togetherness and workshops such as lantern-making, permaculture, dowsing, seedballs, visioning, dance, yoga, story-telling – and anything you feel inspired to offer into the Space that aligns with our theme of Harvest.
Please let us know what you would love to offer! – (email – firstname.lastname@example.org)
Samhain (“summer’s end”/Harvest Festival)
Samhain, the Harvest Festival, represents a new cycle of turning inwards, when we move into the darkness of the winter months. We embrace the darkness of Winter, symbolic of the darkness within, with the knowledge that within the darkness is the whispering of new beginnings and the stirring of the seed beneath the ground.
This is a time for giving thanks for all the blessings of the harvest, for celebrating the earth, lighting bonfires to warm us through the Winter months, to revel in the mystery of life and to offer up our prayers of thanksgiving and healing.
Within the flame of the fire, feel the kindling of new dreams, hopes, projects, seeds and ideas. Nurture them through the winter months, as you enter into the space of your dreams. Spring time will see the seed of your dreams burst into vivid life, as the cycle of growth continues throughout Summer.
Our intention is to create more gatherings where we can all come together in the spirit and magic of co-creation and love to celebrate the seasons, work with ritual and thanksgiving to honour mother earth, and enter into more natural time. Together, we can support each other in our journey towards a way of living that is more fully in Love with everything around us.
The gathering will be drug and alcohol free and offer healthy and nourishing meals (with an emphaisis on raw food. Children are more than welcome.
Accommodation will be camping or in tipis.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to offer any talk/events/workshops/performances that align with the vision of Space of Love Harvest festival.
We ask that all participants enter into the spirit of co-creation with an open heart to experience the true gifts and joy of service to the whole. If there is any job you see needing done during the time of the gathering, we ask that you run with it, encouraging others to assist if needed, taking responsibility for your co-creative role in the Space of Love community.
To keep prices down we have decided on a “bring and share” – yummy healthy vegetarian/vegan food with a focus on raw food. Boxes of fruit and veg, nuts and seeds, tahini, superfoods, dates and any other super yummy treats feel inspired to contribute (the more yummyness you contribute the more superdelicious meals we can create). Be generous, this food will be feeding you and your family over the whole weekend.
Also any kitchen equipment you feel inspired to contribute would be appreciated: think champion blenders, big pots, knives, chopping boards, peelers, big serving bowls/tubs etc.
We ask that everyone volunteer to help prepare at least one meal, and we are also looking for kitchen angels to help focalise meals and volunteers in the kitchen. We need at least one person to play the role of co-ordinating kitchen angel for each meal. The universe will bless you with bliss and a year of a happy tummy for your blessed contribution.
