About The Event
A wide ranging discussion exploring the similarities and differences in practice and celebration of the Wheel of the Year. Traveling through the year Jonathan and Bex will share their understandings of the deeper meaning of their shared festivals, the cultural significance of hidden practices and how the public images of their crafts have changed over time. They will look to the future for both paths and where they might lead.
Dr Jonathan Woolley is a druid, diviner and an environmental anthropologist, whose research deals with how myth, culture and ritual shape our connection with the natural world. Jonathan has written extensively on traditional customs, enchantment, and the landscape for numerous academic publications. As part of his Druidic practice, Jonathan regularly tells fortunes, through scrying, tarot, and the reading of omens in the land, sea and sky. As a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids since 2010, Jonathan has played an active role in leading and supporting seasonal rituals and advocacy for the Pagan Community.
Dr Rebecca Beattie has spent more than twenty years studying and practicing witchcraft and Wicca, and has a deep understanding of the traditions underpinning the practices. A published author, her books include Nature Mystics: The Literary Gateway to Modern Paganism and Wheel of the Year: A Nurturing Guide. Site: https://www.rebeccabeattie.co.uk/
