The time has come to gather, share & allow our creativity to blossom
I am thrilled to introduce Meegan Bradley as our guest host. She brings rich experiences to our circle, having delved deeply into the realms of yoga, meditation, and wellness. A certified Yoga Therapist, she infuses her sessions with the wisdom that is rooted in her extensive training in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Restorative yoga, as well as mindfulness and breathwork. Her approach is not just about physical movements; it's a profound exploration of the mind-body connection, encouraging those who get to soak in her magick to embark on an inner journey towards healing and self-awareness.
At The Gathering, Meegan will blend breathwork, gentle movement, and reflective practices to create a space that is both nurturing and empowering. Her sessions are more than just a practice; they are an invitation to connect deeply with ourselves. Drawing upon her rich knowledge and intuitive understanding of the human spirit, Meegan guides each participant towards a path of seasonal connection, to rewild our souls and reconnect with our innermost selves. In her circle, you will find a sanctuary where divine wisdom and wild, natural rhythms meet, creating a transformative experience that will ground us as we soulfully step into spring together.

More info & FAQs
I want to book but I don’t know anyone going, is that ok?
Absolutely! You’re more than welcome to book even if you don’t know anyone else attending the event. In fact, many participants will join on their own, seeking personal growth and connections within a supportive community.
The opening circle at the beginning of the event is designed so you can meet your fellow Gatherers and create a sense of connection and community. It’s a beautiful opportunity to meet like-minded women who are also embarking on their own journeys.
I encourage you to embrace this experience as a chance to connect, make new friends and share in the collective energy of the event. You’ll find that the gathering provides a warm and inclusive space where you can feel comfortable and supported.
How does the collective shoot work?
During the collective shoot, I’ll be capturing the essence of our time together in a natural and documentary style. As we ease into this time, everyone will be encouraged to follow their own pace and engage in activities that resonate with them. Whether you choose to step outside into the beautiful grounds, or simply pause and take in the beauty of being in this moment, I’ll be there to document these moments.
Throughout this freerange time, I’ll gently guide the group to capture connected images together and Meegan will share more about living in a connected way.
This will be the perfect opportunity for me to capture individual portraits, both close-ups and wider shots and we have beautiful indoor spaces as well as an abundance of nature, a brook, bridges, woodland and stunning gardens in deep phases of wintering.
When we gather for the circle, I’ll photograph the entire circle as well as individual shots, capturing you in community with other souls.
As the circle closes, if weather allows we will cross the threshold into nature to gather to celebrate each other. We’ll put on some tunes so we can move our bodies and welcome the return of the light , and I’ll be there to capture these joyful moments.
My goal is to create a collection of photographs that authentically depict our shared experience and unique images of each individual within the collective. By blending candid and guided photography, my aim is to create a visual story that reflects the magic and connections formed during our special time together.
What if there is bad weather?
The joy of shooting in a seasonally aligned way, means we get to dance with the narrative the season brings. We've planned for The Gathering Spring Equinox to be weatherproof, with some incredible indoor spaces and if weather allows, we can embrace the beauty of the spring landscape outside.
Will I be able to use all the photos?
When you book, as part of the contract, you’ll be asked to confirm your consent for your image to be captured in the collective photos. This means that everyone involved will have the ability to use the photos you’re in for business purposes.
You will receive two galleries of images. 'The Gathering Spring Equinox' will contain the collective photos that can be used by all participants. Each person will also have their own mini-shoot gallery, exclusively for their personal use.
How many photos will there be?
You can expect 10 images from your mini session during the event and at least 100 images of The Gathering as it all unfolds.

It’s really important for me to create a safe and intimate atmosphere for our event. After booking your ticket, you’ll receive a welcome email containing all the necessary details about the event location.

Rest assured, I’ve carefully selected a special venue that aligns with the energy and intention of the event, creating a sacred space for our collective experience.
