Events

We are committed to running events when we are permitted to do so. We are monitoring the COVID situation and will update this website with future event dates as soon as possible. Please contact us if you have any questions and/or would like to be placed on an emailing list.

The events occur twice a year in the autumn (April/May) and spring (September/October) and typically run for 4 days; usually Thursday/Friday afternoon to Sunday/Monday evening.

Although the weekend event is the focal point, the Transition Evening is the official start of the event and is compulsory to attend. The Regathering that occurs 2-3 weeks after the weekend is the official completion. It is highly recommended that attendance is prioritised over other commitments to ensure completion of the process.

If you are interested in joining us on an event, attendance at the Information Evening is highly recommended. Please contact us if you require further information or are keen to attend but can’t make it to the Information Evening.

There is a Women’s Rite of Passage event planned for October 15 – 18, 2021. Download the flyer here
