Our next Explore Celtic Spirituality celebrates the lore, generosity, wisdom, and wonder of Trees! We’ll begin in the labyrinth, where we’ll connect with our tall, green neighbors, and move along from there. Come nourish and ignite your spirit and imaginations, and enjoy poetry, music, community, tales, craft, and more. For all ages – children welcome! Sunday, April 8, 4-5pm, Church of the Holy Spirit, 15420 Vashon Hwy SW, Vashon, WA.
With light moving into darkness, and life releasing into death, the shift to late Autumn heralds the Ancestor time of year. On today’s show, we enjoy music ripe with mystery and magic in celebration of when the “Veil Between the Worlds” is thin.

For the next two weeks, my radio show Forest Halls Celtic will air “Selkie.” Catch it on demand here.
The legends of the Selkie – remarkable people who are seals in the sea and humans on land – are haunting, often sad, and strangely compelling. In this show we take a deep dive into the music and magic of the Selkie with tales and songs arising from the coasts and islands of Scotland and Ireland, and the Orkney and Shetland Islands, as well as some contemporary expressions. Enjoy!
