Bealtaine - Grianstad an tSamhraidh 2018

 

Bealtaine is the cross quarter day between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, an important mid way point in the Earth's journey around the Sun. To our Ancestors, Bealtaine was a celestial announcement of Summer and even though light and temperatures will increase significantly later, this was the time to bring cattele from indoor housing to the fields, or from lower pastures to higher. Traditionally two fires were built through which to drive the animals and the people followed. Fires that cleansed, fires that fed fertility and fires that celebrated the Sun's rise. That is where Bealtaine comes from, tine meaning 'fire', Bal the 'Sun God'. It was said that all Bealtaine fires in Ireland were lit when the first on the Hill of Uisneach, the sacred centre of the island, was seen. This Bealtaine just past, once again we, along with a great number of keepers of tradition were present and in ceremony at the great Fire Ceremony on UIsneach (on Saturday, May 5th).

 

Thank You to Skylab for this beautiful image of Uisneach 2018

 

We wish that all receive Nature's Imbas in this special period of Bealtaine - Summer Solstice. May the rising sunlight come to meet you and may we all the reflection.

Sunday, July 1st: "Power Animal Readings"
At the recent main exhibition of "As Above - So Below" in the Irish Museum of Modern Art, a collection of stunning, provocative artworks that crystalised from artists experiencing the power of Spirit in myriad forms, John was invited to offer live Power Animal Readings to a select group of visitors. They experienced revelation, insight and guidance from his creative technique of bringing strengths and resources from Power Animals to their personal lives. This is a special Sunday starting the month of July for you to choose a personal reading. John will see a small number of people individually over a managed schedule before and after midday.

John will lead a small group from Dublin to visit the site for personal healing and connection to the Ancient Ones. Afterwards we will sit back and relax at the nearby Seamas Ennis Arts Centre with refreshments. A dear friend of Slí An Chroí is Anthony Murphy, please visit his website page dedicated to Fourknocks here. Investment for this experience is by donation (recipient, Barnardos) and transport is by car pool.

 

Saturday, 28th: "Full Moon Summer Dreaming"
Have you ever experienced a Group Dream Incubus? What happens when men, women and children leap into a wild, waking dream state under the energies of the full moon? What vision, what teachings, what healings, what vitality and creativity do they return with? Let the unique blend of drumming, movement, breathwork, stress release and art making bring you a memorable Summer shamanic experience. This is a free event (optional donation to Barnardos) taking place from 10.30am to 1pm. As a starter to your weekend, there is nothing like it, opening your heart to the Sun when the Moon is full. Open to all.

 

 

In The Month Of August

Saturday, 11th: "Mála Masterclass 1",
In the Summer of 2017, all four of the Mála Masterclasses were provided and a notable group of practitioners took one or more of the progressive workshops that bring learning and tools that are impossible to teach on The Medicine Spiral and Healers Spiral. There were some students who took all four classes with extraordinary commitment and enthusiasm. This is the first of the Mála Masterclass series and it will allow you consider the advanced classes that will be scheduled later in 2018. If you have completed The Medicine Spiral and not yet experienced the magical reward of how the mála grows with this extra learning, don't miss your chance this year. Watch a brief video presentation here. Read more here.
