earth festJust back from a great weekend at the Earth Fest held this past weekend, 22- 24 April on a lovely organic farm in Slane. Designed by the wonderful Enda and Masha this event celebrates Earth Day and is a transofrmational festival where there is no litter, composting, education talks with a focus on good music, heart connection, sustainability and living  in harmony with the Earth. 

I went up with some lovely friends and had the pleasure of meeting great people, openness, warm hearts and hanging out and sleep (warmly thankfully) in nature. On Sunday woke up to dancing bearthe sound of the birds singing and felt my aura relax and expand with each tweet as if the bird song was massaging my energy body! As I walked through the field I heard a voice inside me sing, 'I am happy with myself as I am,' nothing like a bit of self-acceptance! 

Congratulations to Enda and Masha and all involved for creating a great festival and a lovely start to the festivaling of 2016!

Communal food, three stages, great electronic music, live music, performances, bands, John Spillane, kindness, chai (thank you Keshet & co!) and a fair bit of beautiful sunshine and fires created a lovely vibe.

Orla healing outdoors I was able to bring the healing table too and offer some treatments. 

 I had the fortune of giving some friends, Nicola and Rafael, plus the wonderful talented Niall Mac Giolla Rua a lift and hearing his gig on Friday night. 

 Was great also to meet up with festival friends, especially Marcus, Andy and Jim :) 

 Meet new friends, or more like recognise and remember old soul friends.

I even got to sing a song on stage on Friday night with Niall Mac G R! It is good to step outside the comfort zone, hey Niall if you are reading this; am looking forward to next time! I also had the opportunity to sing one of my own songs. Ok it was what it was (!), pretty simple, but it's a start and it is going in the direction of delight, the soul's goal and this is worth celebrating! The next Earth fest Orla and Niallday I got to do some mantra singing to the electronic ambient sounds of Rafael Lima. I'm not going to lie, my sound making into a mic was all a bit dodgy, but hey I know it's only going to get better! Thank you life for these opportunities and beautiful people.

Thank you also to all involved. I loved sitting out doors under the beautiful sky and chatting.

Nicola nad Niall Earth fest I have some pictures, so please check back in a day or so and hopefully i'll have them up on this page!

 Looking forward to many more gatherings, healing sessions and gigs this summer!

 Peace and love, EArth fest orla piano
