August 2: “Dancing and Daring at Lunasa” with Rev. Dr. Mary Ellen Kennedy
Lunasa is the Celtic midsummer holiday celebrated on August 1st. Last year, I had the exquisite pleasure of going to Ireland for the first – a dream come true! On this journey, I experienced a profound connection with the land, the language, the music, the people, the books, the heritage and the inherited wisdom and trauma of my ancestors. Understanding prejudice, migration, servitude and enslavement through the lens of racialized trauma was a profound and unexpected gift of this journey. Join me as we try to understand our modern American our multi-racial, multi-cultural experience.
