Our in person events and on-line courses are the perfect way to learn and explore a wide variety of subjects including: healing, meditation, divination, magick and spirituality, in a safe and supportive space and under the guidance of highly experienced mentors and circle facilitators. The number of attendees are kept low so that everyone gains the most out of the experience, and they are suitable for all levels - from complete beginners to those further into their journey.
Exploring The Wheel
The Wheel of the Year is a modern Pagan calendar made up of 8 seasonal festivals roughly 6 weeks apart. We work with the natural energies that are abundant at the corresponding time of year. Each circle covers a different theme and includes a range of activities:
- Exploring the history, themes, folklore and customs of the festival.
- Crafting and creating traditional items to take home.
- Immersing ourselves in a guided meditation to deepen our connection with the festival.
- Coming together in our sacred space to celebrate the festival as part of a wonderful group ritual.
Time & Dates For 2024
The circles begin at 7 pm, however, you are welcome to join us later - anytime up until 8:30 pm (when we will be starting the guided meditation in order to prepare ourselves for the ritual). The ritual will end around 10 pm.

Venue, Parking & Transport
Held at a private residence situated on the Shinfield Road near Reading. Exact details of the address will be shared once booking is confirmed. Depending on the weather, we will either be indoors or out in the garden.
On street parking is available and there is a free car park about 5 minutes walk from the venue. The address is served by a regular bus service that runs late into the night.
Bookings & Contributions
Booking is very simple, please fill in and return the form on the 'Bookings' page. Please fill in a separate booking form for each person who wishes to attend. Spaces are very limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Once you have submitted your form an email will be sent confirming your space (or advising you that the event is already full).
We firmly believe that money should not be a barrier to spiritual and magickal growth, therefor, we ask only for a suggested minimum donation of £5 to help cover costs. A donation bowl will be available on the night to leave your contribution in.
Basic refreshments will be provided, but we do encourage everyone to bring food (a simple snack) and drink to share - it does help make the event that more special and brings us together as a group.
Safe, Supportive & Inclusive
We warmly welcome adults over the age of 18 from all backgrounds, paths, levels of experience and knowledge. You privacy, safety and comfort are at the heart of what we do. Please advise us when booking if you require any additional support or facilities (such as wheelchair access).
