IN THE BETWIXT AND BETWEEN OF THE COMING OF THE GREEN
Northumbria – Home of the Holy Isle
June 21st – 24th 2017
Under the Dark Super Moon of Midsummer we will weave indigenous medicine that is part of the cultural story of the British Isles:
The transmutation ritual known as the Beheading game in celebration of all life and the coming of the Green. From Gawain and the Green Knight, Briccru’s Feast, Katie Crackernuts and the Shee an Gannon & the Grugach Gaire we find the threads of our own medicine way:

In the ‘Celtic’ culture this ritual comes to us in the form of the Beheading Game. This is deep medicine work and requires a foundation of study in shamanic journey work. This is a gathering for those who are committed to their own healing path and to the healing of all beings. This is a full on participatory gathering to support life, it is not a teaching course for people to go out and lead this ritual. This journey is for those who have a sincere desire to expand their own horizons weaving in the shamanic world exploring the indigenous medicine of the ‘Celtic’ Isles.

Why join Andrew for the Beheading Game?
Northumbria is a betwixt and between land. It is named as part of England and yet it is north of Hadrian’s Wall and part of old Caledonia. Having spent many a night and day in this magical part of the world I can attest to it feeling like neither Scotland nor England, it really is an in the ‘gloaming’ place. Add in Lindisfarne, the Holy Isle and the beach and we have triple betwixt and between gatherings.
