Sacred Earth Celebrations is an uplifting and inspiring source book for everyone seeking to celebrate and honour the changing rhythms and seasons of the Earth and her cycles.
It explores the eight Celtic festivals, how they were celebrated and understood in the past, the underlying changing energy of the Earth, and the ways we may use this energy to create meaningful celebrations for today to deepen our connection to the Earth and our fellow human beings.
This is a reference book for each of the Celtic Earth festivals, as well as a source book for related activities. It is an exploration of the many aspects manifest at each of the festivals with ideas for celebrating them. Each festival looks at the underlying energy of the Earth at this time in the year’s cycle, and integrates the patterns and clues which have been handed down to us from traditions which have survived from our pre-christian past. By combining these different aspects, and intuitively reforming them into something new and yet connected, we can create new ways to celebrate the Earth and ourselves and discover ways that will help us to grow and transformation from our old patterns of isolation and separation to a deeper understanding of the unity of life. Thus, these festivals remain part of a living tradition which can be used as an aid to our spiritual process at this time.
Sacred Earth Celebrations deepens our understanding of the five elements, the laws of manifestation, the rhythms of the Moon, Earth energies and sacred landscape, inner journeying, and meditation. She explores ways to create sacred space both inside and outside, the healing energies of trees and herbs, celebrations for children, crafts, the use of song and dance, garden and land projects, building a sweat lodge and labyrinths, and many other creative activities to help us connect to the moment, to the Earth and to each other.
Glennie offers a vibrant, contemporary approach and encourages us, whether celebrating on our own or with family and friends, to follow our own inspired interpretations of each festival. She helps us to touch the sacred, share and participate in the power of nature, express our feelings and find ways to focus on spiritual regeneration and healing.
