I am delighted to be presenting a new live Zoom event on the eve of the Summer Solstice to welcome in summer and help reclaim our sense of the sacred in an increasingly troubled world.
This informal gathering will be a time for learning about, engaging with and discussing the enigmatic figure known as the Green Man. An image to be found throughout both pagan and Christian traditions, the elusive Green Man is the guardian of the natural world. While we typically think of Mother Nature in this role, her creative feminine force can only be sparked by a masculine counterpart, the Green Man. The plant and animal life that results from their union in the spring is tended all summer under his watchful eye.
The energies of this “lord of the forest” are becoming more and more stressed by our human world encroaching on and threatening his natural one with each passing day. But each of us can assist by honouring and respecting the essential life force he represents.
On this eve of summer’s commencement, we will court the Green Man to understand the essential life force he represents as well as how his masculine energies can help us too, each and every day in our own lives. A beautiful guided meditation will initiate this connection, along with some thought-provoking questions to guide our way as we traverse the summer under his guardianship.
Please consider bringing a poem, image or other offering you can share with the group about your experiences or thoughts on the Green Man and who and what he represents to you.
NOTE: this event is ONLINE. Upon registration you will receive a Zoom link which will also be sent out again just prior to the event. A recording will also be sent out afterwards for all those who are registered so if you are unable to participate live you will still have an opportunity to enjoy it at your leisure.
