Lammas/Lughnasad is one of the four “Greater Sabbats,” which makes it one of the most important days on the Wheel of the Year. It is the cross-quarter day between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox, and it marks the beginning of the harvest season.
Traditionally the peak of summer heat, the first hints of Autumn also start to show themselves—the first grains are ready for harvest, the trees begin dropping their fruits, and daylight slowly starts to shrink. It is a time to give thanks for the abundance of the past growing season and to look forward to the remaining weeks of light and warmth as we continue reaping what we have sown.
Lammas rituals are related to harvest and gratitude, and acknowledging and celebrating what has unfolded so far during the course of the year.
In our Wheel of the Year Workshops, we combine the power of the Work that Reconnects with where we are in the wheel of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere).
