About this event

Join ceremonialist Isla Macleod for an evening of wisdom-sharing and conversation about the inspiration and intention for her book ‘Rituals for Life’.

“The purpose of ritual is to connect us to own essence, to help us tune into the collective spirit, or to mend whatever is broken, whatever wires have been pulled out of one’s life, so we can start anew.”
– Sobonfu Somé

In our increasingly secular world, we need to find the ways to restore connection, mend the bridges to the Divine, and remember our place in the Web of Life. Drawing from her latest book, Isla invites us to discover how ritual can provide the bridge back to wholeness; through aligning with the wisdom of nature, the cycles of life, and re-enchanting the world with wonder and beauty.

Join ceremonialist and author Isla Macleod for this very special event as she discusses her book ‘Rituals for Life’, a guide for those searching for the Sacred in the everyday, more meaningful connection and a sense of belonging within the natural world.

“This is a rich, glorious, immensely powerful exploration of ritual in the modern world: what it is, why and, most importantly *how* we can create and conduct rituals that will engage the deepest parts of ourselves. Isla’s book is part of the genuine healing – and it’s beautiful.”
– Manda Scott

The event will be followed by a book signing.
