The Philosophia Wheel of the Year
Women are increasingly seeking to explore their spirituality, honour the natural cycles and reclaim the lost rituals of the Wisewoman.
As a therapist and priestess, I specialise in teaching women about the mythological cycle of the year, guiding them on a path of healing and empowerment using transpersonal techniques such as guided meditation, ritual and creative expression.
This article is the seventh in a series of eight exploring the different celebrations, myths and archetypes associated with the eight pagan festivals of the year.
Samhain is the pagan Festival of Death and Transformation celebrated on 31 October, and upon which Halloween and All Hallow’s Eve are founded.
On this night, it is customary to hold a fire ceremony in order to release all that no longer serves you into the fires of transformation.
In this FREE 20 minute video, I invite you to join me for a Samhain Ceremony with:
* Jana Runnall’s chant ‘Into the Earth’
* Prayers to the Black Goddesses, Totem Animals and our ancestral Wisewomen-Witches
* Fire Ritual to release and transform your shadow emotions
* Drum Journey onto the Isle of Avalon, the Isle of the Dead, to sit in circle with your ancestral grandmothers around the sacred fires of Samhain and transform your shadow into light
During this powerful energetic gateway of Venus and Samhain into the underworld, I will be leading a circle of women deeper on this journey into the shadowy depths with Lilith as our guide this weekend 3-4 November 2018 at The Glastonbury Gnostic Centre & Chapel, and bringing them back out with the Black Goddess Sophia’s light illuminating our way on 1-2 December 2018.
If you feel inspired to join us on both weekends to experience the descent and ascent, I’m offering a 20% discount of £79 off the total cost. Payment plans are also available to help spread the cost. For further information and to apply, please CLICK HERE.
If you are unable to join us this year, bookings are now open to join me on a 3-day Retreat with the Gnostic Goddesses Brigit, Magdalene and Mary at Imbolc 1-3 Feb 2019. Gift yourself the time to reconnect with your Soul and Source at this sacred time of year on the Isle of Avalon where the land is woven with the energies of these powerful Gnostic Goddesses who once walked this earth.

“The Path of the Gnostic Goddess calls to my heart and soul. It is such a privilege to be able to receive Annabel’s profound wisdom, teaching and guidance which comes from a centre of pure love, held in a safe and nurturing environment. She has created such a sense of peace and serenity in a beautiful sacred space. To sit in circle with Annabel and the other women, sharing our life stories and supporting one another is an absolute honour. Thank you, Annabel, with love and gratitude, for the gift of the Gnostic Centre and Chapel and its teachings. It is just what I was wishing for and these workshops are such life-changing and transformative experiences.”
