“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.

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.
