Samhain Traditions
How and where did the celebrations of Samhain, and later Halloween, originate?
Overall, this Sunday Session will tune in to the whole root of this time, the celebration of harvest gathered, the sharing, and the preparing for quiet weaving winter time through winter into Imbolc and the spring awakening. 
This Sunday Session will explore how we 'play' this time with stories and traditions from the Hill of Tlachtga and Hill of Tara in Co. Meath, Emin Macha in Armagh, plus looking at the Scottish Guisers and other Scottish Samhain traditions, English Bonfire Night and it's 'Guy' older than Guy Fawkes and, of course, 'Trick Or Treat' and the modern tradition of garden graveyards.

Folklore Of Crows, Ravens, & Other Corvids

Thoughts of Crows, Ravens, and Corvids can stir up a dirty, and even scary reputation. They are certainly topical of the end of October time of year. 
This Sunday session explores the regeneration symbolism, wisdom symbolism,  team instincts of crows, and the free solo instinct of ravens. Also the reflection of these through the changing tide of winter when we ponder on our resolutions and affirmations more than other times of the year.  
We ponder on concerns of conservation and nature care too. This is a session of preparing, even of hibernation, and includes a 'last leaves left' Tree Labyrinth session, weather allowing

Airmid's Herb Cauldron & Folklore

Exploring the deeds and discovery of the Celtic mother of herbal practice
Starting with Airmid and the stories of deeds of her remarkable ancient Tuatha De Dannan healing, we flow through the folklore legend of her collection of 365 herb plants on her cloak. From the dramatic story event of Airmid's cloak into the quest of discovery and practice of plant based healing and therapy since those ancient days, we explore where plant based and herb therapy is today, and how it still links to the folklore of Airmid.
Herbalist growers and practitioners will guest on this show and viewers are encouraged to ask questions. Please participate and make this session social as well as learning.

Ogham, The Stones Stories

Exploring how the Ogham Stones came into existence
Ogham is very popular at Sunday Sessions. With this session, I explore the ancient, and not so ancient, Ogham, stones. These being the stones carved with Ogham alphabet symbols. I explore how a Tree Language evolved into being carved onto stones, including possible origins, and changes of purpose and meaning over the centuries. From divination to information amenities, to boundary setting, I think you will find this session about the mystery of Ogham Stones very interesting. And please join in with your interpretations too.

Apple Folklore & Avalon Stories
I am passionate about Apple folklore, possibly most of all. I find the bite into a fresh crispy apple is always enchanting and sets of the imagination. In this sessions the Avalon folklore gets a look in too, and an introduction to wassailing which will not be far away from this time, in some places.

Tree Sanctuaries Gathering.
A time and opportunity to recap on where we are with our Tree Sanctuaries and Tree Sanctuary ideas. This is a time when trees are truly turning colour around us in many places where we live. It is also a time we start to think about and plan our next tree planting season between November and March.
