Bealtaine Meditation: Beltane/Bealtaine represents the beginning of Summer: It is a Fire Festival and bonfires would be lit to honour the Sun and its returning light. This simple practice with sounds of nature is joyful and calming; a chance in our mind's eye to witness the earth and the natural world bursting into life and light! Download Celtic Whispers and enjoy our Bealtaine Meditation today.
Bring the blessings of Spring and early Summer into your home by creating a collection of seasonal objects: Spring flowers, seashells, crystals and other beautiful natural things, in honour of the god and goddess of the green world. Suitable colours are green to honour nature and the fairies, or red and white, to represent respectively the feminine and the masculine. Two candles of red and white, for example, can be lit in a prominent position to honour the sacred union of the god and goddess at this time.

In The Mist-Filled Path, Frank MacEowen, a preeminent teacher of Celtic spirituality, shows how embracing the indigenous wisdom of Scotland and Ireland can lead to healing and transcendence. Using his own travels and teachings along with Celtic stories and myths, he explores ancient traditions, eco-psychology, the ancient mother, altars and hearths, Oran Mor (the Great Song), contemplation, and mysticism. The book tells how to draw on ancestral roots to find a personal spirituality that also works for the greater good.
The Hottest August: This award winning movie shows a complex portrait of a city and its inhabitants, and gives us a window into the collective consciousness of the present. The film’s point of departure is one city over one month: New York City, including its outer boroughs, during August 2017. It’s a month heavy with the tension of a new President, growing anxiety over everything from rising rents to marching white nationalists, and unrelenting news of either wildfires or hurricanes on every coast. The film pivots on the question of futurity: what does the future look like from where we are standing?
Celtic Living for the 21st Century:
The golden rule for your domestic recycling is that everything should be clean, and dry. It can help to think in terms of three categories: rigid plastics, tins and cans, and paper and cardboard. Rigid plastics include plastic drink bottles, milk cartons and cosmetic containers. Tins and cans that contained foodstuffs/drinks also need to be cleaned and dried. Paper and cardboard, includes things such as newspapers, toilet and kitchen roll inserts as well as cardboard tetra pak drink containers. Glass shouldn't be put in a recycling bin but brought to bottle banks, although plastic and metal lids of bottles can go in. Disposable coffee cups, plastic bags, pizza boxes, refuse sacks, soft plastics and paper towels/napkins should go in your normal waste.
