When you stop to align with nature you get to harness her wisdom for use in your own life.
You learn how to navigate your own cycles, to get unstuck when life pauses, to let go when you are struggling, to trust and wait patiently when nothing is happening and to celebrate the moments of joy and accomplishment.
This is what working with nature will do for you. It’s literally life changing.
1,000’s of years ago we lived according to the Celtic wheel. This is how our ancestors knew when to sow crops, harvest, rest, wait, marry etc.
They marked each of the 8 points of the wheel with ceremonies, rituals, activities and themes. They danced at the summer festivals, they celebrated at Lughnasa and they patiently waited at Samhain, resting and knowing that the spring will arrive.
Today we have a modern twist on these traditions. For example we know that winter is a time for rest and not a time for new years resolutions. We know that Summer is a time to dream big and get into action to make those dreams a reality. We use ceremonies and rituals that they used to honour the earth and to give thanks for our bounty.
These traditions have been practiced by your ancestors for 1000’s of years and by taking part in one of the many offerings there are now online, you are involved in something really special – you are ensuring that these traditions are kept alive and that the Celtic wheel times remain in peoples conversations and consciousness. Otherwise we can find ourselves caught up in the desk calendar, tied up in days & months perhaps finding that we blindly & on automatic pilot move through the year.
In following the Celtic wheel we stop at each of the 8 significant dates, take a breath and realign so that we can move forward in conjunction with nature and with purposeful intention. In this way you begin to co-create your life rather than passively moving through it.

I am a qualified Biochemist from Trinity College, Dublin and over the past 15 years I have read, studied and practiced mindfulness. I have trained with some of the leading experts, gone on retreats all over the world and held some of my own. I have also worked teaching 8 week mindfulness courses in the community, in companies and as a 1:1.
I am passionate about mindfulness as I can honestly say that it has changed my life! I know that can sound very OTT at times and it wasn’t this sudden flash of light that came down and I was enlightened, sitting lotus position, emanating love (wouldn’t that be wonderful!) No, it was over time and with patience and commitment I found that old behaviours that didn’t serve me well melted away, negative beliefs no longer held me captive and I wasn’t a victim of my emotions (finally!)
The changes were incremental and yet they were very obvious once I became aware of them. I actually began to feel more comfortable within myself which I never thought possible having suffered with depression for most of my life. With that everything changed for the better.
