Wild Hunt (2019)

Friday November 22nd  – 24th  2019.

Beginning at 6pm on Friday and concluding at 1pm Sunday.

The Healing Tree Centre

Raven Hill Farm PL15 8NS

Cornwall

We are excited to be returning to the Healing Tree Centre to lead the Wild Hunt for 24th time this Samhain.

An outdoor Medicine Circle has been lovingly built to honour the Celtic Gateways. This will be our cauldron that will represent all of the worlds as we sweep clean, sing home the lost souls and stand up for life. This is deep authentic medicine work that has its roots in these Isles.

We will prepare ourselves over Friday evening and Saturday for the evening festivities where we will woad up and dance this collective journey around the sacred fire.

The Wild Hunt is a form of ritual battle against the coming forces of death and destruction. Here at the gateway of the dark half of the year, we work closely with the Morrighan, with Sun God Lugh, the Bone Mother and the Tuatha dé Danann to help the souls of the dead cross over. We will open up a portal and keen them home. The Fomorian gods of chaos look to rob the worlds of prosperity. We will sweep clean these forces for the highest good of all beings.

Since 2004 Andrew Steed has led the Wild Hunt in Scotland, the USA, Barbados and Canada. He studied with Tom Cowan many moons ago and through working with the land and his spirit guides this work has deepened significantly. The Morrighan has gifted cleansing journeys, the 3 strands of poetry plucked on the Dagda’s harp have taken this work to the core. This medicine brings deep healing on a personal level to those who attend and a wonderful cleansing to the Land, the ancestors and the worlds between the worlds. It is the backbone of our indigenous medicine pathway, it is a huge responsibility and it is also an amazing celebration of the Celtic New Year. This year Kernow hosts this gathering!

Come and join us in the Samhain season and stand up for life!

  • Celtic Fire Ceremony with the Ancient Wicker Man
  • Sacred Oak Knowledge Offerings
  • Ceremonial work with the Bone Mother, the Morrighan, Lugh, the Dagda and the Tuatha De Dannan.
  • Honouring of the Ancestors & the Fae
  • Collective Journey; The Wild Hunt
  • Life death rebirth in the thin veil of Samhain.

The Wild Hunt is a transformative journey that invites participants to work as a hollow bone. Here at the dark half of the year we work the traditional medicine of the Celtic tribes and bring prosperity to all beings as we celebrate the coming of Winter, the Celtic New Year, Samhain.

We will spend the weekend working with the Bone Mother, the Cailleach, Ceridwen, Beira. We will deepen and strengthen a relationship with the Old Crone as we help her pick up the bones of the dead.

We will work closely with the Morrighan, the goddess of death and war, as we work this gateway for life and peace. Participants will gain an understanding of what it means to stand in Battle Truth and release War Rage!

The Second Battle of Mag Tuired reflects through the ethers as we stand up for life helping prosperity to flow in and around all beings.

Each year Gwynn ap Nudd/Cernunnos leads the Wild Hunt and we will work with this energy. Weaving as our ancestors have before us, we will cleanse and sweep the chaotic darkness that looks to permeate life and steal prosperity from all beings. We will enter the fray in battle truth to knock the Fomorian gods of chaos off course. This collective shamanic experience is a profound journey that is part of the Gallic medicine of 3. As we ceremonially sweep destructive forces from the worlds we work with Cerridwen collecting the bones and we open up a portal to sing home the lost souls of the dead.

This authentic medicine offers deep healing on a personal level to attendees and also to the ancestors, the sidhe, the worlds between the worlds and to the land. This profound journey is an important yearly ritual for cleansing and healing Mother Earth.
