THE SCHIEHALLION IS CALLING…
Dunalastair hotel, 8 – 13 november 2021
THE ALTAR OF THE NORTH
A 5 day ceremony at the foot of Schiehallion, the sacred mountain of Scotland. A gathering to tune in to the ‘otherworld’, the mythological reality of Scotland, and to ask for support, healing and direction for the earth and humanity in this time of transition. We will dedicate our prayers and ceremony towards the altar of the North, focussing on november 11th, at 11th AM, in synchronicity with the 26th Climate Conference in Glasgow.
The purpose of ceremony is to go deep into yourself, face your own demons, discover what you need, and go through an initiation process of death and rebirth. Since we do this ceremony for the earth we will go through both individual processes as well as collective themes. We will be working with the collective field, but to do this we have to be able to go into the depths of our own soul.
We use the principles of Open Space for our meeting: twice a circle in the morning at 10 AM and in the evening at 8PM, to come together, to share, to tune in. We create the program together. The rules of Open Space are:
- Whoever is there are the right people
- Whatever happens is the right thing to happen
- Follow the Law of Two Feet
- When it begins, it begins
- When it ends, it ends
- Expect the Unexpected
- Don’t be attached to the outcome
The place where we will gather is Hotel Dunalastair, close to Mount Schiehallion, a very comfortable, beautiful place between two lakes: Lake Rannoch and lake Kinnoch. Click here for more info on the hotel: DUNALASTAIR
