The OBOD Healers´ Circle is now about to hold their first public online ritual for healing. The focus of this first ritual is ‘connection’. Since so many of us experienced separation and isolation due to the Pandemic, the group felt the need to provide a healing ritual in the Inner Healers´ Grove, a safe and sacred space where everyone can connect with each other, the ancestors and their healing powers. From this Inner Grove, the hope is that the participants will carry light and connection back into their own circles, communities and families. Twice a year, the group are planning to provide a public ritual based on an intention born out of their regular meetings and exchanges, and their communion with the Spirit of the Time, and the Spirit of the Journey. This first ritual will takes place on 23 November 2022 at 7 pm UK/Ireland time, 8 pm CET, and 2pm Massachusetts time. The ritual will use the same platforms as all OBOD online ceremonies, taking place on the OBOD Facebook page and the OBOD YouTube Channel. You are invited to join and it would be wonderful if you brought a candle to light! Hope to see you there!
You are invited to join the OBOD Online Samhain Ceremony on Saturday 5th November at 7pm UK time. The ceremony will take place on the OBOD Facebook page and the OBOD YouTube Channel. Please sit in soft light with a candle ready to light. You might want bread, wine, honey and salt to join the feast. We hope to see you there!🍁✨🍂🎃🎃🎃 /|\ /|\ /|\
3 circles: November 1 (Samhuinn) - December 29 (Rough Nights) - February 1 (Imbolc) This three-sessions offer is one that accompanies you into the Darkness, the North, into the Slow Part of the year. It starts with a session on Samhuinn on November 1, goes further to a meeting in the 12 Nights of Christmas, which in Bavaria and Austria are called the „Rough Nights“ or the „Lots Nights“, around the time of the Winter Solstice, Alban Arthuan, to the time of the Reappearing Sun on Imbolc on February 1. The offer is part of my Connecting to Earth offer that has circles on all the Solstices, the Equinoxes and the Cross-Quarter-Days, for us to learn better again our connection to the Earth and the times of the year.
