Lúnasa Festival 2018 – Lúnasa… Bringing it on!

Event takes place on July 28, 2018

Lúnasa announces the beginning of the grain harvest and was recognised as a time for matchmaking. These were days of rent paying and stock taking but also days of pausing, merriment, reflecting and exploring what needs to be done in the coming period. You are invited to come along and enter into a pausing space, a space to reflect and discover what personal gifts need harvesting over the coming season. You will learn how the seasonal cycles can support you in life. This day will appeal to those who are interested in exploring inner sacred spaces through the ancient wisdom of cycles.
