We are an eclectic mix of peoples of all beliefs and traditions that celebrates the ancient pre-celtic festivals using ritual, ceremony and meditation. We create a contemporary ritual for each of the eight festivals drawing from the ancient traditions, mythology and beliefs found predominantly in Ireland. Celebrations are held out doors and are open to all like minded people who feel drawn to be with us. They are led by a volunteer host(s) who decides on place, time and venue.

Based in Ireland, with connections all over the world, we are a free, non-profit, open, inclusive and non-denominational group, drawing on all spiritual philosophies and traditions. In considering our ancestral heritage our approach is:

Calendar of Ceremonies 2018 - 2019

Each event has a volunteer host, often aided and abetted by others, who calls the date, time and venue for the gathering and also the intention and focus, bringing to the fore the energies of the season. Get-togethers can happen at any time of day or night.

We do not seek to do what they did, we seek what they sought.

No tickets or entry permits required. No charge for gatherings for the eight festivals.

Meditation meets & other activities usually have a small fee for expenses, room hire, etc.
