Summer Solstice 2014 at the Hill of Tara



Summer Solstice was magical this year, the weather was glorious with a spectacular sunrise and sunset at the Hill of Tara, one of my favourite sacred sites.  I was there for sunrise and sunset on 21st June and again for sunrise on the morning of 22nd June.


A very curious thing happened on Solstice morning, as we were standing at Teach Cormaic waiting for the sun to rise over the horizon we noticed all the sheep in the field walked around to the east in single file to face the rising sun and then turned and walked away again.  Five minutes later they were all scattered around the field as normal, as if nothing unusual had happened.  The second morning, the sheep were there but didn’t pay any attention to the sunrise at all.    Photographs of both sunrises and the sunset available here.



The Morrigan at Oweynagcat

We visited Oweynagcat, the Cave of the Cats on Saturday.  It was an amazing experience.  The image is a photo I took in Oweynagcat, the Morrigan’s cave near Rathcrogan.  We felt she was there and could see a green light moving towards us, we felt her presence swirl all around us and she touched us and afterwards when I looked at the photo there she was.

Morrigan at Oweynagcat (2)

On the way home, I felt drawn to write her a poem, here it is:

The Morrigan at Oweynagcat

Morrigan, dark goddess, queen of the night.
Battle raven, crone and maiden, you are a wondrous sight.
Sensuous and glorious, the great warrior queen.
Bringing judgement, bringing death, on silent wings unseen.
Mother and lover, queen of our hearts like no other,
Oh beautiful lady of the cave, standing beside us from cradle to grave,
Bless all your children, hear my heartfelt plea.
Accept my grateful thanks, that you appeared to me.

Here’s Emma’s account of our day:


Today I traveled in a chariot faster than the wind,  stood on top of the world and played for three fairies.
My companions danced as if  enchanted,  then the wind played my whistle.
The women lay on the Rock of Maedhbh,  the great Queen of Connacht,  while I played fey music.
Then I lay on the rock,  became the rock,  whilst the wind made spirals  and triskele with my hair.   Then we climbed higher,  over graves of  ancient royalty,  to sit on the edge of a triangular throne.

Then we flew down,  around,  down,  curving around & down,  into a quiet place behind a graveyard,  where a steam rushes past a well ancient in the time of St. Patrick.   This well is the place where St Patrick came across 2 druid virgins bathing. He told them of his desert god,  and they told him of their god all around,  singing with the wind in the branches,  beating in their hearts,  growing in the fields,  loving with the mother giving suck, the lovers entwined in the bushes, rushing with the waters,  glowing in the fire flames,  secret in the rocks.

Then we traveled to the other side of the great hill,  to a cave hidden under back tree.  We slid down the mouth of the earth,  into her rocky wet womb,  deep under the green fields.  It was  there I left my fears,  climbing back out sure footed into the light,  happy to sit with the rain and the tree and the rocks and the grass,  while my companions conjured the dark goddess Morrigan in her rocky womb.

Then we parted ways,  my companions & I,  still blessed by the mud of rebirth,  to fly faster than the wind in our chariots,  they east and I west,  bringing the light home.

Loughcrew / Oldcastle Spring Equinox Festival



Last weekend’s Spring Equinox Festival was absolutely amazing.  I was privileged to be part of such a wonderful spiritual event.  The weather on Saturday morning was simply breathtaking, with snow creating an ethereal atmosphere and that was followed by a brilliant sunrise on Sunday, with clear blue skies.  Looking forward to doing it all again at Autumn Equinox in September.


Thanks again to everyone that participated.

Uisneach Reviews

From Australia to Austria, more wonderful reviews of my Uisneach CD.  Thank you very much Dr. Ingrid Prunner.

A few days ago I decided to listen to the Uisneach CD, I love fantasy journeys and I love Ireland’s myths. And then I heard Treasa’s calming voice guiding me up to the hill.  I closed my eyes and heard the birds singing, the wooden fire cracking, the wind blowing over the hill…. This fantastic experiment led me down to the grounds of earth and spirit.

I am going to Ireland each year for the last ten years and I can say I know the Emerald Isle well .  Some years ago I was alone at a Stone circle and suddenly there was something strange I felt, but there was no anxiety, only deep peace. And this feeling occurred again at the meditation. Tears were on my face, I felt deep emotions and after half an hour I was calmed and accepted what has happened to me. Treasa, thank you for this experience and the ongoing healing of heart and soul in this stressful world.
