About The Program

Check out Christine Valters Paintner’s upcoming program, Writing with the Ancestors: Honoring the Celtic Feast of Samhain.

The seasons offer us turning points or doorways – the solstices, equinoxes, and the four cross-quarter days known as the Celtic harvest festivals – which are thresholds when the veil between worlds is thin. This means the Otherworld is closer and more accessible. In this free webinar, an introduction to Christine’s four part program Writing with the Ancestors, you will be introduced to these threshold moments that mark the year’s unfolding and be invited to engage in some writing explorations as a way of attuning to how the seasons can nourish the creative and intuitive process.
