Celtic Spirituality Online Gathering - Lughasa
Celtic spirituality is the indigenous Spirituality of Ireland. It is a gentle, nature based way of being that invites us to be our authentic selves and to live from our heart. Join us as we journey through the Celtic Year, gathering together on Celtic Festival days, as we continue to move with the seasons and partake of the energy and tune into a sense of Celtic consciousness, kindling or re-kindling the Celtic Soul within us. Lughnasa is often spoken of as Mother Nature’s open invitation to us to wholeheartedly look at the abundance in our personal and collective worlds. An important tradition at Lughnasa is to celebrate this fruitfulness with joy and gratitude.
As we gather together at this Threshold time we honour the Spirit of fulfilment and plenitude and take time to sense this season within our own lives as we move with the seasons of the Celtic Year.
We offer this through sharing some of the treasures of the Celtic Spiritual Tradition and ways of bringing it into our daily lives.
Ritual, Music, Song and Chant, Celtic Conversation, Poetry, Blessings and Myth accompany us in our Gathering.
They are delighted to share these online gatherings, honoring the major Celtic Festivals within the seasons of the Celtic Calendar, exploring how these ancient holidays can enrich our souls and deepen our connection with life.
"Seán and Mary have been friends for years, and this shows in the ease with which they work together. They present us with an array of tools and possibilities for diving into Celtic Spirituality, as each session follows the Celtic seasonal calendar. Mary brings a lifetime steeped in the tradition, and in her easy conversational style, shares poems, stories, mythology, and leads simple and profound rituals, in which we all participate from our homes. Indeed, the whole experience is like being in good company by the fireside. Seán’s gorgeous voice touches the deepest parts of our nature, as he invites us to join him in the singing of chants and songs. He’ll often sing in Irish. These afternoons are wonderful, helping us merge our daily lives into a timeless connection with Celtic wisdom and earthiness." — Heather Dotterweich
