Online Celtic Spirituality Gathering: Celebrating The Spring Equinox
Guided by Mary Meighan, founder of Celtic Journeys, live from Ireland – with songs & chants by Seán Johnson
(Time Zones: 11am-1:30pm Pacific/ noon-2:30pm Mountain/ 1-3:30pm Central/ 2-4:30pm Eastern)
Celtic Spirituality is the indigenous spirituality of Ireland. It is a gentle, nature based way of being that invites us to live from our heart.
This soul-nourishing gathering will take place on the Spring Equinox where day and night are equal in length in the Northern Hemisphere.
You are warmly invited to experience the depth and richness of Celtic Spirituality and our Celtic Wisdom tradition. This is offered through a Celtic Talk about what this time of year in the Celtic Calendar symbolises and how we may bring it into our everyday lives. Songs and chants, Celtic Blessings, Poems, and Celtic Ritual and Reflection are woven throughout our Gathering. These are an intrinsic part of our Celtic time together. The Spring Equinox is a special liminal time of honouring balance in nature and balance within our selves – a time of promise that the seeds that were sown in the quiet season are beginning to come forth. You are are very welcome to join us as we move within the seasons of the Celtic Year.
Whether you are someone who knows very little and is curious about how the living spiritual tradition of Celtic Spirituality can nourish our lives; someone who has always been inspired by the Celtic world; or someone who has ancestry from the Celtic world who wishes to deepen your connection to those roots– all are welcome.
