Samhain Women’s Gathering at Solas

3rd November @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


The November gathering is a special event to celebrate Samhain, a Celtic festival marking the end of harvest and a beginning of the darker half of the year. Samhain is associated with seasonal and cyclical transition, with letting go and new beginnings. We embrace our own change, other people’s change and life changes, learning to accept and release as necessary. Places are limited to ten women so booking your place early is essential.
