Come and join Dawn Burgar of Ancient Wisdom for an evening of storytelling and a guided meditation focusing on the energy of the season of Lughnassadh. Resonate with the energy of this seasonal meditation in our beautiful Crystal Salt Cave with complimentary salt therapy.
Also known as Lammas, or First Harvest, the name of this festival as Lughnasadh is Irish Gaelic for "Commemoration of Lugh". Lugh is the Deity of Lughnasadh, and there is a feast with bread made of the first cut grain that represents the Divine. The Lords of the harvest are Lugh, Green Man and John Barleycorn, who ritually sacrifice them selves every year in the essence of grain, in order to enable human life on Earth.
Lughnassadh developed into the later medieval English and Scottish "Lammas". As such it is first mentioned in old anglo-saxon chronicles as early as 921 CE as "Feast of the First Fruits". In an agricultural society the beginning of the harvest was a natural occasion to celebrate and to give thanks to the Divine for Its gifts. We shall continue this tradition in our group meditation.
