Solstice Wellbeing Day
The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and traditionally is a day of celebration in Irish culture. The moment of the Solstice is the time when the sun is at its height. Mental Health Ireland aim to create a new celebration at the moment of the Solstice, a simple action, accessible to everyone, which will enhance positive mental health and wellbeing.
You might not realise but the Summer solstice occurs in Ireland at exactly 5.38 p.m.!
It is at this moment on our Solstice Wellbeing Day, we plan to read a passage, light a candle and invite everyone to mark the moment by reflecting on the past year and making a wellbeing intention for the coming year.
Our Local Solstice Event
The local Mental Health Association are having a local Solstice event beginning at 4.45pm in Griffith Park ( Also known as Tolka Park) We will assemble at the Millmount entrance, not far from Drumcondra Library and Millmount Clinic.
We will walk along the river in the park.
At 5.30 we gather near the large flower beds and have some readings, a few songs from special guest artists.
We will light our Solstice Candle.
We will continue our celebration with a cuppa in the nearby Skylon hotel.
Can you let me know if you or people you know are attending this special event
