Harvesting at Lughnasa

Connecting and working with the celtic wheel

"I had learned that you only have to walk in a big wide-open place without open fences and the fences in your mind will begin to come down."

John Moriarty
Lughnasa is the festival that marks the beginning of the harvest and named after the Celtic god, Lugh who was a skilled Warrior and the God of Light.
 
At lughnasa our ancestors gathered to celebrate the manifestation and abundance of a new harvest. And so too we now are invited to do the same thing with a modern twist.
 
During this session you are guided through two healing meditations, a ceremony to honour this potent time of year, learn how Lughnasa shows up in your life and how you can harness its energy for guidance. 
 
We focus upon the themes of gratitude, compassion, harvesting and abundance.
 
What you will need:
  • Pen and paper
  • A sacred quiet space
  • A candle and lighter

I hope you enjoy!

I have read, studied and practiced mindfulness for the past 15 years. During that time I have trained with some of the leading experts, gone on retreats all over the world and held some of my own.

I am passionate about mindfulness as I can honestly say that it has changed my life! I know that can sound very OTT at times and it wasn’t this sudden flash of light that came down and I was enlightened. Sitting lotus position, emanating love (wouldn’t that be wonderful!) No, it was over time and with patience and commitment I found that old behaviours that didn’t serve me well melted away, negative beliefs no longer held me captive and I wasn’t a victim of my emotions. Finally I could breathe and access a peace within I had never felt before and has stayed with me since.
