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

Stay safe, be kind and we will get through these difficult times together.

“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.

Roshi Robert Kennedy’s Zen Meditation sessions (available daily at 12 noon)

Roshi Robert Kennedy is a Zen master who has given retreat days at Luisne.  He has trained several Zen teachers – among them Miriam Healy whom many of you know. She, too, has run several retreats at Luisne. In these days of Zooming we can now join meditation sessions at The Morning Star Zendo in New Jersey which was founded by Roshi Robert Kennedy. The sessions begin with the ‘sitting’ and are followed by a short teaching and then there is a brief period for questions/comments. The sitting on A Saturday is at 2pm; there is no public sitting on Sunday. Namaste!
