Witch is a loaded word. Coded with negativity, but equally a liberating word. It is a word that has been linked to centuries of oppression and still conjures up fear and mistrust, to this day. It is judged as devil worship and that fear still permeates the modern world.
Contrary to the fairy-tale version, Witches are not menacing broomstick flying old hags, with warts on their noses, who cast spells all day long, hell bent on destruction!
Long ago, Witches were the village healers, sought after for their wisdom and intuitive natural healing abilities. They were the medicine women, the midwives, the visionaries, the story keepers and guardians of the feminine mysteries
These women looked to the natural world for answers to help heal their communities. But as the world turned toward more patriarchal rule, the word Witch became synonymous with wickedness and malevolence. Witches were demonized because of their power and sovereignty, and the fear of Witches within society became the normal function of life.
Witch trials all over the world have had an impact on human rights, including how women have been and are still treated today.
Here in Scotland the Witch Trials were tragic and some of the most brutal ever seen. These trials began with a royal obsession of black magic sparking the flame of Europe's most brutal witch hunts in the 1590’s.
The underlying reason for the Scottish witch trials (or any of the witch trials around the world) was fear, including a political and religious agenda.
Many of us have lost our connection with our deepest knowing, intuition, and our ability to follow our own natural cycles and integrate them into all aspects of our lives.
This magical icon holds deep feminine power and wisdom! Women can work with this archetype to reclaim their innate power and sovereignty.
Join Belinda and Fionn for a 3-Part Workshop where we will be exploring the Witch Archetype to awaken our deepest feminine mysteries and ignite our inner witch.

Journey to heal the Witch Wound
Discussion on how we can to step further into Sacred Women’s Business and open ourselves up to our feminine gifts.
Who is The Morrighan?
Explore two aspects of The Morrighan: Death and Shape Shifting, and discuss how these are interlinked.
Practice listening to The Morrighan and then discuss how we can use these insights to change how we live and interact with all those around us.
Working with the Goddess assists us in healing the separateness we feel between our body, our emotions, our mind and our spirit. When we learn there is no separatation, we learn that we are unified as an essential and vibrant part of the web of life and the universe.
Our journey together in sisterhood, to awaken our Inner Witch, will be through deep and vulnerable conversation and in order to ensure we can all receive what we need during this journey, we will open this workshop up to 8 Sisters.

Reviews from our previous Workshops
Beautiful, well thought out content, with lots of love which has gone into the preparation. Thought-provoking and the perfect amount of information to get you started on the significance and magic of goddesses from around the worl.
The Goddess Workshops were beautifully held, both within each session and also overall. Everything had been considered and magically planned for, from the box arriving before the first workshop to how, at the end, it was possible to realise and appreciate how complete the process had been. Fionn and Belinda were gentle and careful guides, had thoroughly prepared and knew their stuff. They created a safe space within which to mother our evolving and assimilating insights.
