The Journey: who is holding space this year?
… Facilitators Bios:
This year we will be starting earlier to honour the Solstice sunset alignment at Dowth monument. In this way we pay homage to the darkness before we go on the journey to the rebirth of the light the following morning. John McCormack will be holding the Sunset ceremony at Dowth with Shamanic Drumming.
