Our Autumn Equinox Celebration was held on Sunday 25th September 2016 at the Hill of Tara, Co. Meath

 In keeping with the theme of "Equinox" (which literally means "equal night"), half of the celebration was before sunset while the other half in the darkness after sunset.

Click here for Winter Solstice 2015 - Without Darkness there can not be Light

Without the darkness we can not appreciate the light. The Newgrange Tri Spiral reminds us of Life, Death and Rebirth as a sacred tridem of existence. This tension of Yin and Yang gives rise to existence in all its myriad forms.  Join us at Newgrange to meditate on this on 20th December at sunrise...... Click for more....  Thanks to Pat for the photos

19th September 2015:  Seomra Tara: At Equinox we move away from the summer's freewheeling dominant emotional and physical energies, towards the mental and spiritual realms supported by the study and introspection of winter. Our intention in this gathering will be to acknowledge the seasonal energies, reviewing the past year, then coming to the centre of our being and acknowledging the blessed life we have on earth.

In Memory of Eileen Dowdall -     Rest In Peace

We love you  -  We thank you  -  We bless you



We'll miss her smile,
We'll miss her Scouse accent,
We'll miss her sense of humour,
We'll miss her meditations,
We'll miss her craft workshops,
We'll miss her warmth,
We'll miss her energy,
We'll miss Eileen.

Labyrinth candle crafted by Eileen for the TRANSITION of the monday meditation from an Tobar to Tara. Eileen would get a kick from the date it was first lit....28th Jan 2013, 3 years to the date she would be buried, 28thJan 2016

Eileen offering a gift of flowers to the river Blackwater at a Lughnasadh celebration.

In 2012 Eileen wove these baskets for the gifts to St Ciaran's well at the Lughnasadh celebration where we shared an inter-weaving dance.


Holistic Day 2014 Eileen taught us how to make Tree of Life pendants.  Those present have memories of us all being rather giddy and Eileen being firm but patient as we fumbled to twist our silver wires into trees.

tree of life


One still night in "an tobar" Eileen excelled in the meditation on the blossoming heart, pictured right.



The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good
