Seven Spokes - Michaelmas Celebration

26 September, 2020

Today we gathered on the land to celebrate Michaelmas.  The festival is traditionally based on the harvest festival of the middle ages, which is honouring Saint Michael who defeats the dragon, symbolising good triumphing over evil.  However, with the modern twist, we heard the story of the child befriending the dragon, which symbolises us all recognising our shadow aspects and integrating them into our psyche. 

We decorated the dragon with food gathered and grown, and we shared food together.  The children dressed in fiery colours and played together on the land, re-enacting the story they had been told.
