Chinese New Year New Moon Lunar Circle

Wednesday 25 January
6pm – 7pm

Our Moon is a portal through which divine feminine energy flows. Synchronising with the ebb and flow of her rhythms in simple ritual can bring us into a more harmonious state of being. Join wellness practitioner Shaney Barton for a series of lunar meditation evenings in the Winter Gardens this Winter.

In each event we will connect to the energies of the Moon through guided meditation, visualisation and ritual. Observing the Moon’s current aspect, we will work with release and co-creation principles, with focus on the current astrological influences to connect our practice with wider cosmological energies at play.

Each evening will feature a mixture of:

  • Guided meditation and visualisation
  • Breathwork
  • Energetic grounding
  • Moon ritual practice
  • Sky watch
  • Oracle card reading

With 330 degree views of the sky, the Winter Gardens support a gentle interaction with nature and a cocooned space to gather under the sky in the cooler winter months.
