Cruthaigh

Imbas

Cruthaigh means ‘to create’ in Irish and was brought about to inspire healing through creativity under the Spiral as the symbol for change in Ireland.

Creativity, inspiration and healing are three major elements to healthy individuals and communities and Cruthaigh intends on making that common knowledge around Ireland. It is very important for individuals to know that change must happen within themselves before the world will change. As above, so below, as within, so without.

By Cruthaigh becoming a nationally recognised entity that blurs the world’s of the ancient and the modern it is is destined that our lovely land of Ireland will once again become a festival of love and craic forevermore.

Run to Plant Trees

Crainn

COMPLETED: 232 KM RAN AND 586 NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS IRISH TREES PLANTED WITH HOMETREE CHARITY

Run to Plant Trees is a cause and a call for climate action created by Baiba Šustere, yoga and meditation teacher, an avid runner and nature lover, who is based in Galway, Ireland.

Run to Plant Trees was a year-long fundraiser during which Baiba ran 2 half marathons, 3 marathons and 1 ultra marathon, altogether 232 km. The aim was to raise funds to plant native and indigenous Irish trees on the West Coast of Ireland with Hometree Charity. Baiba also created a platform which informs about the importance of trees, forests and biodiversity, and how it relates to local communities and climate crises. To achieve it Baiba not only ran 6 races along the West Coast of Ireland, but also organised fundraising events accessible to everyone in community. Run to Plant Trees created a platform to talk about current climate crises, importance of individual and systematic changes, about the beauty of our nature, and how important it is to respect and preserve it.

With Run to Plant Trees Baiba hopes that she brought this attitude of encouragement, strength and persistence into action, and encouraged each of you to do something you thought you will never achieve.

You are a part of nature. Stay kind, run and plant some trees.

Is file mé

here to fill a
function in the tribe,
to call out the imperial side
to capture
the imagination of a nation
with nets of silver
to sit in waiting
for God’s cast offs
and metaphors
and answers to
the ‘what fors?’
to invoke and provoke
and get my spoke
into this celtic wheel
and with a bleeding heart 
make you feel
with the spoken word
make it real

The Celtic Wheel

Eolas Ársa

Mari Kennedy

The Celtic Wheel 20/21 is a year-long journey through the 8 Festivals. It is designed for women who want to activate their feminine wisdom and their sovereign power so they can live in more balance while in service to the new world emerging.

The Celtic wheel is the calendar handed down to us from our Celtic and pre-Celtic ancestors. Our Celtic ancestors were rooted in the rhythms of nature and the cosmos and the interconnectedness of all things. 

The world of strive-drive over-culture is collapsing around us. We as women are exhausted living that way. The Celtic Wheel is an ancient map that can help bring women back into balance and into our sovereignty,  so we can spin a new world into being.
