Lughnasadh Ritual

Lughnasadh, also called Lammas, is a festival honoring the Celtic God Lugh and marking the beginning of the harvest season. We gather at the height of summer to celebrate in community and begin reaping what we’ve sown over the past few months.

Our ritual intention is: The story you tell is the spell you cast.

Accessibility

The ritual space is on mostly even concrete in the open-air backyard of the store. Access to the ritual space is level and wide enough for wheelchair access. Typically, accessing the ritual space requires going through the store, which does have strong scents, and accommodations can be made in advance to come in through alleyway. The ritual space will have some light after dark, but it is minimal. Chairs are available for those needing to sit for part of or all of the ritual, and the ritual is structured to allow for participation also while seated. Acoustics in the yard can be difficult with aircraft flying overhead; however, there are no constant loud noises, and the ritual is conducted with awareness of the ambient noise level to help with hearing. Very rarely, due to inclement weather (either heavy rain or wildfire smoke), the ritual is moved to an indoor space which is up a flight of stairs with no wheelchair access.

We have written this accessibility statement to be as inclusive as possible so that people with accessibility concerns do not have to do the labor of asking. If we have overlooked some aspect, please email us at info@reclaimingla.org, and we will do our utmost to answer – your question is not a burden in the slightest and will help us to improve our accessibility statements on future rituals.

What to Bring

  • Please bring flowers for the altar!
  • Please bring food and drink to share for the post-ritual potluck.
  • Please bring your own reusable/washable plate, cup, utensils, and napkin. 
  • We will be hosting a bardic pre-ritual gathering in the Green Man’s classroom area prior to the ritual. Please consider bringing a devotional/bardic offering to share with your fellow celebrants before the ritual – a song, a poem, a piece of art – in honor of the season and the turning of the Wheel.
