CELEBRATING THE CELTIC FESTIVALS
Celebrating the Celtic Festivals at the Sustainability Centre and Butser Ancient Farm, events for all the family.
At these two remarkable centres set in the Ancient Countryside of Hampshire we will mark the changing seasons and celebrate the unique beauty of the British Countryside in the heart of our ancient lands.
These events are based on the indigenous culture of Britain. The event often starts with a demonstration of an ancient method of lighting a fire.
Once the fire is lit and the atmosphere builds, Jonathon will often share a story from the British culture bringing it alive with poetry, song, humour and drum.
This is usually followed by uplifting singing and a sip of tree tea collected and made from local berries, bark or leaves.
These events are often very popular and children are always welcome to take part and connect with the Traditions of Britain’s Countryside.
Earth Spirituality in Schools
Learn about the ancient history and spirituality of Britain. Jonathon is an experienced teacher and delivers an original thought-provoking presentation on pagan beliefs suitable for all schools.
‘I would like to thank you for the workshop you ran at the Hampshire Beliefs and Values Conference this year.
You were an extremely popular workshop with both staff and students and contributed to the overall success of the day. A number of those attending the conference commented on the originality of your contribution and have asked whether you would be able to run similar sessions in their schools.’
