Join Adrian and Jo as we explore the relationship between this iconic tree of the ancestors and our own lives. Now at the very end of the year, we look back at our ancestral linage and our biological predisposition to behave in certain ways. The Yew is seen as a tree of eternity; by rooting from branches which sink to the earth, it regenerates itself – the old tree forming a grove of younger trees surrounding it. The ancients reflected this as a sign of transformation from death to rebirth, and Yews were often planted on tumuli and long barrows.
Today the Yew represents bringing to consciousness outdated thought patterns and transforming into something relevant to your current life. We descend into the underworld to meet Gwen ap Nudd – Lord of the The Wild Hunt, hunter of the souls, and in doing so, we also explore our relationship to our mortality.
Some live in fear of their own mortality and so never fully manifest their full potential as human beings in this life experience. Today we focus on walking backwards towards death with our eyes firmly fixed on life.

College of Psychic Studies - The College was founded in 1884 by a group of eminent scholars and scientists. Its purpose was to facilitate formal investigation into the psychic and mediumistic phenomena that were such a topic of debate in the Victorian era. With great courage, this group of distinguished people, some notable in science, others from within the ranks of the Anglican clergy, defied the prevailing canons of respectability in order to proclaim to a world of increasing materialism that human personality survives bodily death and that this is capable of demonstration.
