Embercombe Online – Ancient Wisdom, Sacred Landscape with Carolyn Hillyer
Carolyn Hillyer Online Event
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dartmoor-based musician, artist and writer Carolyn Hillyer joins us to talk about ancient collective wisdom and sacred landscape. From her thousand-year old farm, set amongst wild hills, peat bogs and heather moors, she creates work drawn from the raw beauty, untamed spirit and primordial memory of the land, and leads workshop journeys for women based on initiatory soul work and direct interaction with place. Her books include the internationally renowned Weavers’ Oracle and her recent series, Book of Hag.
Carolyn has written 11 solo albums and co-created many others with her partner Nigel Shaw. Her early albums (House of the Weavers, Grandmother Turtle) have come to occupy an iconic place within women’s sacred music and other recordings (Weathered Edge, Ice, Cave of Elders, Wyched Womb) have, over three decades, defined the essence and edges of her unusual perspective on women’s spiritual journeys and ancient mythological landscape.
For over 25 years she has been teaching a series of powerful workshop journeys for women (now including an apprenticeship programme) that braid together ritual song and drum, intuitive ceremony, ancient initiations and direct interaction with wild land. She is founder of Thirteen Moons women’s festival.
