Tara Celebrations - free, non-profit, open, inclusive and non-denominational, drawing on all spiritual philosophies and traditions. Wherever we are within the universe we can all celebrate change and acknowledge this by witnessing the continual play between light and dark, enjoying a contemporary experience for each of the eight festivals whilst remembering ancient traditions, mythology and beliefs found predominantly in Ireland.

Changes in life-style due to the Covid pandemic mean that folk hesitate to meet face to face in groups and thus not all celebrations are group gatherings. Global Spiritual Wheel - Connect

If not possible to meet in person there will be guidance and suggestions how to celebrate posted online in the preceding weeks of the Celebration. When we do meet face-to-face some meets are more like social gatherings whilst others are formal and ceremonial /ritualistic depending on the prevalent energies of the time and place as interpreted by the day's host.

Meditations are held on-line on an irregular basis.
