“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.

The desire for happiness is such a driving force both in individuals and for mankind itself, that if we can understand the true nature of happiness, we have gone a long way to understanding ourselves and the nature of the world in which we live. We consider questions such as: What is happiness? Is it natural to a man or woman? How may it be experienced fully and how is it lost? Is it permanent or transient? What is the effect of gaining happiness at the expense of another person’s happiness?
