Celebrations and meditation during Covid-19 pandemic
Current Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland include:
Outdoor organised events can take place with up to 100 people in attendance. Cinemas, theatres, galleries, museums, libraries and other cultural attractions are open. Outdoor facilities such as golf courses, tennis courts, zoos, theme parks and heritage sites have reopened.
Whatever we do will be in line with government advice. For the safety of all during the Covid-19 pandemic numbers present in person are limited. So get togethers are held online or outdoors, with plenty of social distancing available, times and venues to be confirmed.
No tickets or entry permits required. No charge for gatherings for the eight festivals.
Meditation meets in person and other activities usually have a small fee (usually €5) to cover expenses, room hire, etc. when not held online.

Based in Ireland, with connections all over the world, we are free, non-profit, open, inclusive and non-denominational, drawing on all spiritual philosophies and traditions.
We are an eclectic mix of peoples of all beliefs and traditions that celebrates the ancient pre-celtic festivals using ritual, ceremony and meditation.
We create a contemporary ritual for each of the eight festivals drawing from the ancient traditions, mythology and beliefs found predominantly in Ireland.
Some meets are more like social gatherings whilst others are formal and ceremonial /ritualistic depending on the prevalent energies of the time and place as interpreted by the day's host.
When possible Celebrations are usually held outdoors and are open to all like minded people who feel drawn to be at the event. Get-togethers can happen at any time of day or night. If not possible there will be guidance and a suggestions how to celebrate posted online in the preceding week of the Celebration.
Who arranges the meditations and celebrations?
attenders, who 'know the ropes' and evening's general format, will set
up the meditations using their experience of what suits most people.
Evenings are lead by different people each week and thus a wide range of
styles, traditions and inspiration is shared.
Each Celebration event has a volunteer host, often aided and abetted by others, who calls the date, time and venue for the gathering and also the intention and focus, bringing to the fore the energies of the season.
The volunteer hosts over recent years include Vivia, Zoey, Jean, Martin, Marta, Dana, Anne, Tom, Bernadette Mac, Susan, Bernadette C, John M, Pat, Nora J, Nora M. Others who felt the call to tune in and plan each celebration have included Anne B, Des, Eileen, John A, Mary, Mary O, Theresa, Yamann and many others, who join in body or in spirit.
As it is not always possible to meet 'in person' we have focussed the energy of those who join in 'at a distance' into the Global Spiritual Wheel.
