Mabon Calling - News from the Muse
View this email in your browser
Last week we celebrated Imbolc, halfway between Midwinter and the Spring Equinox. The good earth is warming up. Life is beginning to stir. Time to step forward into 2017....
This year sees a big leap for Cae Mabon. In October 2016 we ceremonially brought the Spirit of Mabon to Cae Mabon as part of a 30th birthday celebration. It was a powerful thing to do. Read on for the full story of the ceremony.
We are booked up three months earlier than usual and have a full cauldron of delights on offer. See below for details of forthcoming retreats.
We have a great crew in place, ready to guide the good ship Cae Mabon though wondrous waters. Discover more about the Cae Mabon clan. There is also an opportunity to join the team as a live-in volunteer between May and September to help support Cae Mabon during its high season.
And - fanfare!!! - we have 'Mabon Calling', this newsletter, which will come to you at the time of the Celtic festivals over the Wheel of the Year.
So much gratitude for the spiritual support and creative nourishment the magical land of Cae Mabon gives to us and those who come to stay. Long may it continue!
