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.
On-going Covid issues and resulting changes in life-style mean that often folk do not want to
meet face to face and this has meant that now (2022) not all celebrations are
Meditations are held on-line on an irregular basis.
Current Covid information is posted here - public_health_measures_for_covid19
Reports from 2007 to 2018 are available at our archived website - Archive Tara Celebrations
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.
The volunteer hosts over recent years include Danielle, 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.
