Sammhuin Community Celebration (Some photos!)

13 Nov 20

by Francesco Benvenuti 

 

On the 31st October the Salisbury Centre opened its garden for a socially distanced contemplative celebration of the turning of the Celtic season.

It was so beautiful to see our community coming together and to join in the activities on offer, which included, walking the labyrinth, making crafty lanterns and joining in a evening fire ritual.

Although following the government guidelines meant that we could have a limited number of people at once in the garden, all slots were super well attended and there was a great buzz!

Thanks to all the facilitators who helped out with the crafting sessions, the labyrinth, the fire ritual, as well as setting up, packing things away, taking photographs and all that went into organising and running this event.

It is beautiful to see the heart of the community to still beat strong even as the pace of activity slows down as we enter the darkest months of the years.

Here some photos from the day to share some of the happenings with who could not make it.
