Next Celebration -Winter Solstice 2021
We are still in the energies of Samhain, but for many winter seems to have a strong call, and especially the time around Winter Solstice. Watch this space!!!
Celebrating the 4 Elements
Earth, Air, Fire and Water celebrated as we build up to Winter Solstice. I asked if the earth had a message... "Is there anything you want to share?" "Why?" She replied. "I am here, is that not enough?"

New Moon - 4 December 07.43
On this New Moon 4th of December 2021 seek answers to your heart burning questions by looking inward.
New moons are usually a great opportunity for setting intentions and
because this is the last New Moon Of The Year it seems like the perfect
time to do so.
However because the December 2021 new moon is also an eclipse it's better to use the energy for reflection rather than manifestation.

Based in Ireland, with connections all over the world, we are free, non-profit, open, inclusive and non-denominational, drawing on all spiritual philosophies and traditions.
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.
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.
When possible Celebrations are usually held outdoors and are open to all like minded people who feel drawn to be at the event. Get-togethers can happen at any time of day or night. If not possible there will be guidance and a suggestions how to celebrate posted online in the preceding week of the Celebration.
Who arranges the meditations and celebrations?
attenders, who 'know the ropes' and evening's general format, will set
up the meditations using their experience of what suits most people.
Evenings are lead by different people each week and thus a wide range of
styles, traditions and inspiration is shared.
Each Celebration 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.
The volunteer hosts over recent years include Vivia, Zoey, Jean, Martin, Marta, Dana, Anne, Tom, Bernadette Mac, Susan, Bernadette C, John M, Pat, Nora J, Nora M. Others who felt the call to tune in and plan each celebration have included Anne B, Des, Eileen, John A, Mary, Mary O, Theresa, Yamann and many others, who join in body or in spirit.
As it is not always possible to meet 'in person' we have focussed the energy of those who join in 'at a distance' into the Global Spiritual Wheel.
