“Luisne, the first blush of light before dawn breaks” 

translation from old Gaelic

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.

  1. Poetry to Nourish the Mind Heart and Soul with Lorraine O’Brien

    November 30 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm    €50
    Watch Lorraine's course introduction video: https://youtu.be/K1i4ZKBhOP8 The creative and talented Lorraine O’Brien is back to encourage and enable you to get in touch with your creative side and have fun in the process. A Poet is someone who can pour light into a cup then raise it to nourish your beautiful parched holy mouth (Hafiz) The main aim of this course is to make you fall in love with poetry. If you are already in love with poetry, this course will delight you. You will come to realize that a poem can become a teacher, a guide, even a prayer. A poem can teach us to navigate our way through the trials and tribulations of life in profound and sacred way. Each session begins with a ‘Poetry Bath’ - you relax and I bathe you in the delicious words of poets such as Rumi, Hafiz, Mary Oliver, Rilke, David Whyte, Seamus Heaney and many, many more. Each person is then invited to share with the group a poem which speaks to them. A word or a line from that poem is then chosen as a starting point for a piece of free flow self enquiry writing. We end an invitation to share (optional). Each session will include breath work and meditation. Booking on for Mondays (6 sessions) 7.30 to 9.30pm. €50

If you are already in love with poetry, this course will delight you. You will come to realize that a poem can become a teacher, a guide, even a prayer. A poem can teach us to navigate our way through the trials and tribulations of life in profound and sacred way. Each session begins with a ‘Poetry Bath’ - you relax and I bathe you in the delicious words of poets such as Rumi, Hafiz, Mary Oliver, Rilke, David Whyte, Seamus Heaney and many, many more. Each person is then invited to share with the group a poem which speaks to them. A word or a line from that poem is then chosen as a starting point for a piece of free flow self enquiry writing. We end an invitation to share (optional). Each session will include breath work and meditation. Booking on for Mondays (6 sessions) 7.30 to 9.30pm. €50

Tai Chi and Qi Gong, an ancient form of mind/body discipline, is the most well-known, and commonly heard of, Chinese health practice. It translates as the “Supreme Ultimate”. Its methods help us heal mind, heart, and soul frictions that we all carry by showing us how to use our feelings of disconnectedness to go deeper and have the experience of “Self” that connects us to the flow of life from the inside out. This conscious experience of one’s innate nature is why Tai Chi is often called moving meditation. Classes on Mondays and only €75 for 6 x 1 hour classes
