St John’s Festival

At the height of midsummer, we celebrate the festival of St John. The sun is at its highest, the days are at their longest and it is the time when inner work is most difficult. We celebrate the outer light and the birth of John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ and the voice of conscience.


In recent years there have been different ways of marking this festival, either by going on a midsummer walk or by having a celebration around a midsummer bonfire.
