About this course

The Wheel of the Year is turning once again and we are about to welcome in the first of the harvest festivals, Lughnasadh. Lughnasadh takes places on the 1st of August and holds the space between the end of the summer and the start of Autumn. It is a time of year to count our blessings, give thanks for all that we have received and to make hay while the sun shines. Harvest was a hugely important time of year for Celtic and pre-Celtic people, in this course we are going to be looking at the significance of this first harvest festival and how it was honoured in the past. We'll mainly be looking at the Irish mythology and folklore associated with Lughnasadh as it's an Irish festival in origin but we'll also be looking at how this time of year was honoured across the UK and it's Christian counterpart Lammas (Loaf Mass). We'll be connecting with the story of Lugh, Irish God of the Sun and his foster mother Tailtiu as well as looking at other Goddesses associated with this time of year.

August in the Uk is a wonderful time of year in the hedgerows, with glorious berries to harvest and an abundance of herbs and flowers to gather. We'll also be connecting to what's happening in nature at this time of year and engaging in wild crafts such as how to make lavender wands and corn dolls.

In this course we are going to be exploring how to honour Lughnasadh in our own hearts and homes and keep the spirit of this ancient festival alive today. I have combined my passion for Celtic history, myth and folklore along with my own English and Irish heritage to bring you this course jam packed with magic, ritual, self care and ceremony.
