Lughnasadh at the Song House
July 29 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmContribution
Ancient Medicine for Modern Times
Hosted by The Song House and Jenny O’Hare
Lughnasadh (or Lamas as you may know it) has it’s origins in the Celtic harvest feast day. It is named for the Sun God Lugh, who showed the Celts how to harvest. This time provides us with an opportunity to celebrate life and the abundance that this time of year brings. It also encourages us to meditate on the slow descent into darkness. Traditional celebrations would see golden sun gatherings focussed on the harvest of corn and other crops, matchmaking and offerings to the Faerie folk. Our celebration will take the more modern manifestation of an online gathering via Zoom.
What you can expect: folklore around Lugh, the sun God, and the unfolding of Lughnasadh; guided practice to presence and connection; space for sharing in celebration; honouring of Earth and community. Skilled facilitators and hosts will bring us together in an online community Circle. We will create a ritualised atmosphere, and be guided through song, sharing, listening and collective harvesting, to honour and move through these poignant times.
This event is open to all – come with your curiosity, come with your challenges, or come just to witness the evening, or to partake in tradition and the cyclical nature of life. All are welcome, join us!
We also plan to record a portion of this event to make available so that Lughnasadh can be celebrated outside of this specific time slot. We will not be including any participatory elements in this recording for the privacy of the participants.
