Our Time Of Plotting 2009

Christmas day gatherings and sharing over, leftovers sandwiches getting thinner and beginning thoughts about Hogmanay, or more about beyond Hogmanay.


A time of plots, plans and a shift to focus on our lives, goals and self improvement.


“Where’s our career going, how many pounds will I lose, how will I be better towards others” etc.


“Where am I going on vacation” is also a hot topic and I do find that before Christmas day dinner plates are in the sink or dishwasher the emails come in investigating what we are offering from Celtic Ways in Ireland through 2009.


So here’s a quickie round up of what we are planning that you could join us with.


January


Lots of work on our Labyrinth Garden to level the path with the intent of making it walkable barefoot, along with other landscaping work including a water feature.


At our Two Worlds Theatre on January 6th is the first of our regular Meet Up Gatherings, this one on Energy Healing.


We aim to launch Two Worlds Radio as part of our Keash TV broadcasting collection


Various inquiries in for 1, 2 and 3 day local guided tours by couples and families so please add to these as we are available and January is often a nice month to be in Ireland.


We will also be developing and rehearsing our “Birth Of Bhride” workshop for various dates at our Two Worlds Theatre and on tour through this year


February


The big day is February 3rd . The actual time of Imbolc/Brigid’s moment will be 5:17 pm on February 3rd at where we live at Carrowcrory. We will celebrate the sunrise and sunset on that day. Hopefully, our labyrinth will be sharing the earliest of its spring flowers. Please come along and share this with us.


Our first Live online Videocast concert or show will be broadcasted on that day.


Either late January or early February will be the launch of our local weekly social networking classes to help people make the most of blogging and social media services to share and expand their interests and businesses.


Again, various inquiries in for 1, 2 and 3 day local guided tours by couples and families so please add to these as we are available and February is also often a nice month to be in Ireland.
