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.
This is also a follow up to our March 'Us And Trees Session, but also good to attend if you missed that, including more depth with what you interpret a Tree Sanctuary is, and how to become a living part of it.
Presented also are the eco benefits and the personal Green Prescription health benefits of your own, or access to a Tree Sanctuary.,. A way to Grow Your Own Oxygen too.

A herb session without herb books. A quest to learn a bit from herb plants through your senses, and past uses memories. An experience of wonder, trust, discovery and confidence about some of the plants that may already surround you.
You will not need to know their names of the herbs but allow senses to discover how they can benefit you and how to harvest and store them. A lovely intimacy with nature session.
