Inis Ull Samhain Ritual - Journey to the Other Lands

-

We will journey with Mannannan MacLir in his boat as he parts the mists to the Other Lands and Realms. You will be invited to journey where Mannannan leads you, and to ask for inspiration, wisdom, insight, image, or symbol that will help you as we turn the wheel into winter and the dark time of the year.

We will also be honoring our Ancestors and those who have inspired us in our lives. We encourage you to bring pictures or mementos of those loved ones who have past. You will have the opportunity to share about those who inspired you and those ancestors who have passed.

Hecate's Guidance: Autumn Equinox

-

Join Inis Ull Apple Island Grove as we celebrate the Autumn Equinox with the Goddess Hecate. It is she who can traverse between the worlds, and is the companion and escort of Persephone, Queen of Hades who must spend the winter in the underworld and comes back to our world each spring.

Is these strange times of the ongoing pandemic, we don’t know what the winter will be like, so we are asking for Hecate’s guidance as we begin to move to the darker half of the year.

The King and Queen of Summer

-

Join Inis Ull Apple Isle Grove as we celebrate the coming together of the forces of light, Aengus and Brid ( or Brig) as the King and Queen of Summer. In Scottish lore, gone is the power of the Cailleach and forces of winter for a little bit longer as we celebrate the first grain harvest of the year.

THE GIFT OF SIGHT

-

Inis Ull Apple Isle Grove of NYC would like to invite you to to our Summer Solstice Celebration. We will continue to meet with joy outside on the Great Hill in Central Park.
We will be honoring Helios, the great Titan god of the Sun. He is frequently mentioned in the Lore as all-seeing, so we will be asking him to gift us with sight, knowledge, and understanding.
This is a continuation of the theme of far-sight, initiated by the Beltane oracle we received from our Oak Tree, part of which told us that we would once again be able to open our horizons and see far.

Return to the Land

-

Inis Ull Apple Isle Grove of NYC would like to invite you to to our Beltane Celebration. We are happy to announce our first meeting outside on the Great Hill in Central Park in a year an a half.
