Lúnasa: The Art of Harvest


Lúnasa is a Celtic Festival which marks the season of harvest. It is a time to honour and give thanks for the years journey and what we have achieved. Sometimes the path of recovery can seem slow and challenging. And it's true. Progress is slow and it is challenging. If it wasn't, everyone would be doing it, right?
N.B.- if you are in the Southern Hemisphere and are curious about how this might still be relevant to you visit HERE

This session is about honouring recovery as a process.

Last year when we ran one of these with Amanda Grace many participants found it a beautiful and immensely helpful session.



In our Art is Magic Community Facebook Group which you can join HERE (please mention Lúnasa in your request to join and be sure to request joining before the live event to allow time for approval into the group and then just show up during those 48 hrs). The session will be lead by Amanda Grace of Pilgrim’s Soul and our RAW guidess.


The session will be live on the 29th of August at 8pm BST UTC+1 - to find out what time that is in your part of the world use this converter HERE
N.B.- The lesson will stay available in our group for 48 hours after which it will be available as a bonus in the RAW workshop. If you can make the live session then all the better as there is a potency to the group energy coming
together like this.

Supply List:
  • Your Journal.

  • Pens / crayons / Coloured Pencils

  • White Paint / Black Paint / brushes (acrylic is best)

  • 2 Paint colours.

  • Found imagery from stash. (See note)

  • Tissue or scrap papers for collage

  • Glue Stick.

A note on found imagery:
You are about to begin a ‘stash’ of found words and imagery that will become fodder for your visual vocabulary. I recommend collecting your images into a folder. 

Your source can be magazines or papers you can pick up from your doctors office, charity stores, a collection you have gathering dust in the basement or your local library Cut & Tear from these, words and imagery that appeal to you. Don’t go looking for specific words or images. Don’t be literal about it. Just choose images that call to you for whatever reason, you don’t have to know why, just gather, you will feel the pull. Trust it.

I’m a visual poet working in just about any medium I can lay my hands on although I am a professionally trained photographer and a so called “self-taught” artist (of course there have been many teachers on that path). I’m in love with the creative process. I’m a beauty unveiler, light huntress, moment caresser and visionary poetess. Ultimately, all of my work is about helping people peel back the layers to experience the intense beauty of each moment allowing access to both their intuitive wisdom and a deeper connection to spirit and self. (Because the beauty of this life cracks our hearts open and it is through the cracks that light can flow both in and out and connect us back to our divine selves) That is what I do and I do it through photography, art, journaling and teaching. I live in the insanely beautiful Blue Mountains, just shy of Sydney, with my family, our cat and all the winged ones who frequent our garden. Each day here is a wondrous delight of tiny miracles through either the glorious light or magical mists. I would love to work with you, have a look around and see where you are called... "Where I create, there I am true." Rilke
