At the turn of each season, on the solstice and equinox we have the opportunity to reflect and acknowledge the season that has come to an end as well as welcome-with focus, the incoming season.

During this evening we will turn our gaze to the heavens and seek direction from astrological influences. Just as we are drawn to gaze upward ‘as above, so below’ we will anchor our connection to Gaia by aligning our senses to this season’s elemental force. Once immersed in celestial insight and earthly wisdom you will be invited on a guided visualisation to uncover deeper intuition, to orientate and enhance your evolutionary path.
