A Guided Full Moon Night Walk on the South Coast
A guided super blood moon night walk by the sea starting and ending at Seaford Head
7pm to 10.30pm, January 31st, 2018
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
Join us for a silent night time journey by the sea on this guided night walk on the night of January's Blue Super blood moon*.
This is pretty special and a chance to experience the land at night, and the moon, walking in the dark without torches as part of a group, in a safe and supported way.
By walking the land mindfully we fill ourselves with the light and the dark in preparation for the year ahead.
And as you walk on the cliffs by the sea, lit by a full moon, you may drop into a quiet inner space of reflection.
This will allow you to have a direct sensory experience and connection with nature: the tastes and smells in the air, the feel of the wind as it caresses your skin, the touch of the ground under your feet as you walk.
The walk will be predominantly silent to allow the burble and chatter of daylight hours to subside and mysteries of the night, the land and the sea, to draw you closer.
The darkness has long been a feared space and in embracing it in this way you open yourself up to the possibility of befriending the night.
The walk will be loosely structured, with time for some sitting reflection, and at a gentle walking pace, to allow your senses to fully expand into the possibilities offered by moving across and being with the land at night.
This guided night walk will be led by Caroline Whiteman, and includes a fire and hot drinks on the beach at the end.

* A blue moon is when two full moons happen in the same month. A supermoon is when the moon's orbit is closest to the earth and coincides with a full moon. A blood moon happens when it's a total lunar eclipse and the Moon takes on a reddish color. The full moon on January 31st 2018 is a super blue blood moon!
