Sunrise Samhain Sauna & Cacao Ceremony at Saltburn Beach
Celebrate Samhain and mark the start of winter. Connect to the cosmos, yourself and the elements.SOLD OUT
The ancestors of this land celebrated Samhain. Samhain is a Gaelic festival with Celtic Pagan origins and marks the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or "darker half" of the year. Samhain was marked by great gatherings and feasts and was when the ancient burial mounds were open, which were seen as portals to the Otherworld. Special fires are lit which have protective and cleansing powers. To mark Samhain come and enjoy a wood fired Finnish sauna on the beach. Once you are lovely and warm you can take a dip in the North Sea if you wish. After the sauna we share cacao around the fire. You will leave this experience feeling super relaxed, rejuvenated, energized ready to settle into the winter. Please note the sea dip is optional and at your own discretion and risk. Once you register you will be sent a confirmation email with full details of where to go what to bring etc.
Safety and trust
We create a safe space for you to surrender, relax and feel into the experience.
You are in control of your experience. We take you slowly, gently and incrementally to a place which brings the most healing.
Inner and outer healing
When you work on the inner healing, then everything else will fall into place.
To help you in your wellbeing journey we have a team to offer assistance and knowledge while you’re here.
Danny has been facilitating, hosting and leading breathwork and cacao ceremonies for the last few years. He will lead you gently and safely into a place of healing and rejuvenation.
Sam runs a great sauna and will lead you on some beautiful breathwork.
Have a look at our schedule below!
Pop Up Wild Sauna
We will start with 10-15 minutes in the sauna. For the first round we take things gently. We slowly increase the heat. As your core temperature rises and your body starts to sweat we then take a break to cool off, outside or in the water. After a few minutes we then get back in the sauna. We increase the temperature a little more in the 2nd round and even more in the 3rd round. We are very careful to keep everyone safe and as comfortable as possible in the heat. In the hour we usually fit 3 rounds of sauna, interspersed with 2 breaks.
In between sauna rounds it is a good idea to cool off. To cool off you can either sit outside the sauna or you might like to take a cold water plunge. We would advise going into the water gently, incrementally, so that your body can get used to it. Once you are in up to your waist, take a deep breath through your nose and as you exhale slowly through your mouth gently submerge your body so you are sitting on the floor. There is no need to go out of your depth to get the full plunge. You dip in the sea at your own risk. The benefits of the cold plunge are many- i will tell you all about it in the sauna!
You are served cacao with love honour respect and intention. You are then guided on a Samhain Cacao invocation.
We then come back into our bodies nice and gently. You will leave this experienced energized and grounded.
What's Not Included
What Should I Do in a Sauna?
We recommend simply doing the sauna what traditional sauna-ers have long done: nothing. Just sit there. Let your mind go. Do some reflecting while your thinking is still sharp; meditate when your mind starts going blank. Just be.
We will have a guided meditation and breathwork if the feeling is right.
It is also Ok to chat- this is your session and gift to yourself.
What Should I Do After I Sauna?
During your sauna session, you’ll lose a lot of water through your sweat — up to four cups during a twenty-minute session! Be sure to rehydrate with plenty of water afterward. Supplement with electrolytes as needed.
We would also recommend to just go easy on yourself. You will be in a state of high vibration and relaxation. You want to be in that state as long as possible so stay away from stressful or negative situations, people or media.
What Should I Bring?
Bottle of water. Towl. Bag for putting clothes in while you are in the sauna. Dress in something loose and comfy with bathing costume underneath. We are just in bathing costume in the sauna then in and out of the sea (if you wish). Afterwards it's a case of getting back into your clothes again a bit wet, so consider a dressing gown/towel/ dry robe for modesty.
