CHRISTMAS CONCERT SATURDAY 14th DECEMBER 7.30pm to 9.30pm

“Luisne, the first blush of light before dawn breaks” -John O’Donohue

“Luisne” (pronounced lishne) is Irish meaning “the first blush of light before dawn breaks”. One of Luisne’s goals is to contribute to the dawn of a new consciousness. Since 2004 Luisne has served a growing community throughout Ireland. Its beautiful undisturbed environment could justifiably be called a “spiritual landscape.”

Luisne provides events, courses, workshops, talks, meditation sessions, cultural & theatrical events and much more for the local and wider community, both on an individual and group basis.

  2. Advent: The Season of the Parables 2 with Diarmuid O’Murchu

    December 14 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm    €25
    PART 2 - The parables of Jesus are found not only in all four gospels but also in some of the non-canonical gospels. They form approximately one third of the recorded teachings of Jesus, so we rightfully attach importance to them. We can consider them to be similar to Aesop’s Fables, seemingly simple and memorable stories, often with imagery, and all conveying messages. Scholars, however, tell us that although these parables seem simple, the messages they convey are deep, and central to the teachings of Jesus. Many of Jesus's parables refer to simple everyday things, such as a woman baking bread (parable of the Leaven), a man knocking on his neighbour's door at night (parable of the Friend at Night), or the aftermath of a roadside mugging (parable of the Good Samaritan); yet they deal with major religious themes. Diarmuid will help us to look at the parables in a different light helping us to see below their surface meaning, often revealing the ‘sting in the tail’ at the end of the story.
