Next Celebration - Lughnasadh 2020
Lughnasadh. Really? Time flies... as we flow with the twists and turns of 2020 we are about to harvest what we have sown.
The energies resonate with the core values of the group in open heartedness, hospitality and friendship, for the highest good of all. Each person is responsible for their own healing – we are there to witness and support their personal process.

Questions and Answers about our Pandemic Meeting:
So there’s a global pandemic, entire countries are in “Lockdown”and there are scenes worldwide not seen in generations – so it might be safe to assume that there will be no meditation/healing meeting for the Tara Celebrations group for a while.
Not so, because we’re a very
resilient bunch and we seem to find a way to have our meetings one way
or another. This time it’s with the help of both modern technology and
the ancient art of “distance healing” so for the last few weeks we’ve
been meeting online.
I must admit at first there was a degree of trepidation among members: surely a group Meditation wouldn’t work if we were all in different locations – different countries even? Surely a group Healing wouldn’t be of any benefit? It’s not as if the healing energy could zip around the world piggy-backing on the world-wide-web, is it?
Not exactly, but in my experience (and
others I’ve spoken to) both the meditation and the healing DID work, was
very beneficial and left us looking forward immensely to the following
week. So there ends the story - or does it?
We Skyped a meditation/healing session, it worked, it was great and we’re going to do more. The thing I want to know is why did it work? How did it work? (So many questions –when will we get answers?)
Our meditation group "meets" as normal.

Get-togethers held in the name of Tara Celebrations have been held at 35 places in Ireland plus 1 shared between Zurich and Hill of Tara. Venues, Festivals and Themes - a history
Insight gained at Fourknocks Megalithic site in Co. Meath which we were visiting prior to a Celebration:
We do not seek to do what they did, we seek what they sought
And as Pat says in his Winter Solstice 2018 comments:
It has to be said that most of our celebrations are like this one: profound, simple occasions that fill a need in all of humankind for sharing and talking and thinking and getting close to nature and going without and going within.
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.
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.
Who arranges the meditations and celebrations?
Regular 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.

Why 'Tara Celebrations'?
In 2007 some of us who regularly celebrated the eight annual festivals wanted to share our experiences and knowledge and had to find a website name to do that, eventually deciding on Tara Celebrations. It is not the name of a specific organisation with a constitution or set of rules, there are no members or officials such as a Chairman or Secretary.
The website is now a collaboration between Michael in Canada (Clickopen.ca), Martin and Pat in Ireland, Nora in UK and with the help and input of many others.
We welcome any queries, insights or input. We may be contacted through email@TaraCelebrations.org
