KIRTAN, Friday 13th May from 6:30 pm to celebrate the launch of The Church of the Love of the World event hosted by Grace & Lucia 

To celebrate the launch of Grace’s new book of poems The Church of the Love of the World is a powerful and passionate new book, confirming the promise of Wells’ previous collection, described in Poetry Ireland Review as “a book that enlarges the possibilities of poetry”.  Kirtan is a Sanskrit word that means "narrating, reciting, telling, describing" of an idea or story, It also refers to a genre of religious performance arts, connoting a musical form of narration or shared recitation, particularly of spiritual or religious ideas. Lucia helps people focus on your health and well-being by using the tools of yoga, sound, poetry, breathwork and poetry medicine.
