Isla Macleod is a ceremonialist and ritual weaver, creating bespoke journeys and rites of passages to honour our natural transitions and life cycles. Contact: islamacleod. com Inspired by nature, forged by longing, devoted to remembering. Lover of moss, mead, mushrooms, trees, wild swimming and moonlight.
Samhain is the time to honour and remember all that we have lost: grieving the dead and feeding the memory of our ancestors. This relationship between the living and the dead, the seen and unseen, is what enables the Great River to keep on flowing. With our prayers, songs, stories, tears, offerings and creations, we can tend to the sacred fire around which our ancestors are fed and warmed. We can enliven and deepen our relationship with all our relations during this sacred time: stitching a glistening thread that weaves back and forth, honouring the Great Spiral. With this thread we can access a whole realm of unseen support, love, inspiration and grace in our lives. Through our giving, we receive, and balance is preserved.
