About the Book
Tara Celebrations observe the 8 solar festivals and attune our lives to seasonal changes. This is a compilation of our activities and accumulated wealth of experience since 2007. The website content is now collated into a book - all money from sales will go to the support of Tara Celebrations expenses in holding gatherings and providing free events. Non-profit making.
Local residents in Meath, Ireland, and many others who join with us in body or in spirit... What are we celebrating? It is certain that whatever else happened at ancient sites around the world they were and are still used for traditional customs and rituals at particular times of the year. There are many different cycles and calendars and these have been handed down since pre-history, changing as the needs of the individual and community changed. In our rituals and ceremonies we do not seek to do what they did, we seek what they sought. The cycle we use marks the four seasons of Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasadh with the four cardinal days of winter and summer solstice, spring and autumn equinox. The seasons are an expression of what is happening on the land and also in our own lives.
