We are planning to gather together Ireland’s most prominent leaders, teachers and explorers in the fields of mindfulness, self development, self awareness and spirituality to harness their energy, awareness and light under the umbrella name of:
“The Ennis Festival of Light”
We plan to put Co Clare and in particular Ennis on the national and International map as being at the center of this particular field of study and over the next 5 years grow the festival into a gathering of excellence in the fields of mindfulness, self development and spirituality inviting leading teachers from all over the world.
The Ennis Yoga Studio is now in its 6th year in business in Ennis and has fulfilled its purpose as being an anchor point in the center of the town offering yoga, meditation, kirtan classes to over 2,000 students in the last 5 years.
The “Festival of Light” will be an extension of these practices inviting people from all over the Country, all walks of life, all ages, colours and creed to gather in Ennis town center and come together to raise consciousness and create an energy that supports not just the town, but also the swell of interest in these particular fields of study as a result of the changing social and economic landscapes in Ireland.
People are looking within themselves to find new ways to cope, live, prosper in these challenging times and “The Ennis Festival of Light” creates an opportunity for people to come together and quite literally begin the process of “wakening up”. In the climate that we find ourselves we are being called to experience greater awakening and growth and we want Ennis to becoming a leading, guiding light as this change occurs.
The ethos of the festival and of yoga, mediation, mindful movement and chant is, at its simplest, a way to shift the vibrational charges in the body, in the environment, in the Town and create an environment firstly within ourselves and then extend it outwards to facilitate deep positive change and healing. This work when practiced properly extends far beyond our single – soul selves and brings us into a place of deeper connection and unity.
We need to create this community in order to support and encourage growth and change in our wider communities.
By holding this as an “Urban Festival” we are encouraging people to come stay, practice, eat and socialise right in the heart of Ennis Town.
