Welcome

 

The Blog is no longer active but holds a plethora of articles, some personal, some reflective and some informative based on the Wheel of the Year, the seasons and celebration.

For information on my current seasonal celebrations visit Keli Tomlin Ceremonies and click on “Seasonal Celebrations” and “GATHER”.

If you are looking for a Celebrant or interested in working with me to create ceremony or similar, please visit Keli Tomlin Ceremonies.

For more information on ‘Walk the Wheel’ and the Wheel of the Year please read below and use the links in the menu bar above.

Please email any questions or comments to kelitomlinceremonies@gmail.com.

Thanks for visiting!

In a World where we are largely urbanised, plugged in, switched on and connected to hundreds of people we may or may not know through social media, it can seem quaint and contrived to encourage seasonal celebration as a route to connection.

This why we need seasonal celebrations the most!

From October 2012 to February 2016 I ran seasonal celebrations in Hadfield and New Mills, Derbyshire. Walk The Wheel was a gathering of souls who wanted to deepen or expand their connection to the natural world through exploring the seasonal Wheel of the Year. Gatherings would often include:

  • sharing creative expressions of the season (art, stories, songs, recipes etc; personally made or found elsewhere)
  • sharing mindful observations of the season
  • meditation or pathworking
  • crafting
  • a variety of celebratory activities including singing, chanting and jumping over the odd Beltane broomstick.

A wonderful community of ‘Wheel Walkers’ was formed from a variety of faiths and backgrounds; providing a wealth of inspiration and connection for all those involved. Not only did we come to know ourselves and our World better, but we also felt a deep connection between ourselves as humans, which grew through the shared experience of celebration and ceremony.

Although the regular events ended in 2016 this blog remains active as an archive of what happened and the various articles and writings that I created during that time; many of which were directly connected to and inspired by the Wheel of the Year.

      We had a little boy whose name I’d rather not share online but who you may meet at our gathering; he still needs to stay close to me as I’m currently his only food source 😃 looking forward to seeing you x

    Hi Keli, just thought I would say hello. Thinking of you and your bump. Hope all is well for you. It’s not time yet for birth perhaps, but nature is so busy preparing beneath the soil, ( I have seen the first shoots of Winter flowers poking out their heads 4a peek.) what a wonderful time to have a baby. I always feel optimistic in February, I am looking forward to celebrating Imbolc.
    Goddess Bless you and your little one, Sarah. X

As you say the Land is starting to stir and it feels very in sync, even thought there is still snow on the ground. There is a freshenss and newness in the air that baby seems to encompass too 🙂 Hope you are well also. Glad to ehar you are enjoying the season and I truly hope that continues.
