Wheel of the Year Circles
This solar year we will be exploring our local area in the Upper Blue Mountains by visiting a different site in the area each time together before coming back to the Community Gardens in Katoomba for a ritual and to share food. The dates, times and locations are as follows. More information will be given about specific meeting places closer to the date, or contact via text to either Julie on 0433051137 or Amanda on 0422717549. All events are free.
Dates for 2022/2023:
Sunday December 18th 1:00pm – Blackheath
For Alban Hefin/Summer Solstice, we will be visiting Braeside Dam in Blackheath. Text me for directions on 0433051137. It is a four wheel drive dirt road. If you need to park your car and get a lift, let me know. Bring weather appropriate clothing, swimsuit if it’s warm enough for it, and some food to share. If it’s warm, we’ll have a swim. If it’s cold or raining, we will walk out to the Green Wall which is an easy walk of about one hour return.
Sunday February 5th 2:30pm – Mount Blackheath Lookout
Meet in the lookout carpark. There is no walk on this outing. The views from the area where the carpark is are amazing. Bring some food to share and weather appropriate clothing.
Sunday March 19th 2:30pm Blackheath Glenn Campground
Megalong Valley Rd. Meet in the main camp parking area near the toilet block. There is a stone circle we can walk to in the bush. It’s about a twenty minute walk up a steep hill. Please bring appropriate footwear for walking, water and weather appropriate clothing. Bring some food to share afterwards.
Saturday April 29th 1:00pm – Narrowneck
Meet in the end parking area at the far end of the road where the walk begins. We will walk to the view over Mount Solitary/Korowal. It is about thirty minutes to an hour each way. The ground is uneven but not very steep. About a medium difficulty. Bring appropriate footwear, water, sun protection and weather gear. Bring some food to share when we get back to the cars at the end.
After the journey to see these locations we will return to the Community Gardens in Katoomba where there is a kitchen and toilets we can use. We can share food here and have a ritual. The locations have been chosen to represent each of the seasonal festivals and their directions on the wheel of the year. The Community Gardens is at the center of them.
