Bealtaine Aran islands

Yoga & Meditation Retreat

May 11-13th 2018

inis mor, Galway

Bealtaine celebrates the end of the dark half of the year and the coming of the light half of the year. Bealtaine involved many rituals, most of them involving fire, which is why the festival is sometimes known as the Celtic Fire festival.

Bealtaine is associated with the Celtic god of fire and light, Belenos. Meaning ‘bright’ or ‘shining’. He has been described as a healer and promoter of happiness.

Yellow flowers were often used in addition or instead of tree branches, as the colour yellow was reminiscent of the sun – this was also why fire was so significant during Bealtaine. Bealtaine is about welcoming the light half of the year after the dark.

 

Bealtaine traditions that will be incorporated or represented over the weekend.

Fire

In Irish mythology, the beginning of the summer season started with the Fire Festival at Beltane. Bonfires would mark a time of purification and transition, celebrating the season in the hope of a good harvest later in the year, and rituals to protect the people from any harm by otherworldly spirits.

Intention Tree

The May Bush is an ancient tradition throughout the country. A May Bush is usually a hawthorn tree that grows near a holy well (and really, every well was sacred). The hawthorn generally blooms around Bealtaine, and is taken to be a good sign that the summer will be fruitful. People tie strips of colored cloth on the may bushes to symbolize their prayers and wishes for the year ahead.

Flower offerings

Yellow is perhaps the color most in evidence in the run-up to Bealtaine, with primroses, cowslips and marigold all in bloom. A small bouquet of yellow flowers would be tied above a doorway, or left on window sills and thresholds, or yellow petals scattered on the threshold to prevent evil spirits entering.
