Lughnasadh

Comet Stone, Near the Ring of Brodgar

Join Spiritual Orkney in a celebration of Lughnasadh.

On Sunday 29th July 2018 at 7pm there will be a celebration of Lughnasadh at the Comet Stone, very near to the Ring of Brodgar. Our ritual is based on those provided by the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, but the wording is inclusive and designed to be accessible for people of all religions / beliefs and none.

Lammas marks the beginning of harvest, a time of joy but also a time to prepare for the coming of autumn and its longer nights and colder temperatures.

This is the time of the year when we start to reap what we have sown; as the cereals crops start to be harvested, likewise we acknowledge where we have sown good seeds in our own lives or in the lives of others.

We welcome everyone who wishes to attend. Please read out attendance guidelines at http://www.spiritualorkney.co.uk/attendance-guidelines.

There is no charge and we ask only that you bring your open mind and warm heart. We meet at the Comet Stone, very near to the Ring of Brodgar, and we are quite obvious! As a Bardic ritual, we invite participants to join in, perhaps by taking a speaking part, or bringing a reading or piece of music to share. Join in as much as you are comfortable with – if you only wish to observe, please be equally welcomed. We usually conclude by sharing ale and honey-cake ... and then we regroup at a local hotel for a social.

Please feel free to contact Helen or Mark Woodsford-Dean for further information, email us at info@spiritualorkney.co.uk
