Inis Ull/Apple Isle Grove Summer Solstice Ritual Celebration



Come join Inis Ull Apple Island Grove for our Summer Solstice Ritual. We will call upon Apollo the Greek Sun God, whose arrows bring plague as well as healing. We will appeal to Apollo for healing and health as we face the global pandemic of Covid19.

A paean is an ancient song/poem or ritual offered to the god to appeal for healing and give praise and thanks. According to the Ancient Greeks, plague comes from humans incurring the wrath of the Gods. Our paean is an offering to Apollo to appease him and ask him for help to overcome this pandemic.
