Nourish the light within this Summer Solstice.

Join us on FRIDAY 21ST JUNE for our Summer Solstice Dip at Dawn from 4:20 am – 6:30 am for 20 minutes of rejuvenating yoga led by the amazing team at SoulMoves, a refreshing dip at Salthill Beach, and a heavenly hot drink courtesy of 79G!

Why Take the Challenge?

The Summer Solstice is celebrated by cultures around the world, in honour of the earth and the sun’s blessing of warmth and light. Solstice means ‘standing in the sun’. Dip at Dawn brings us together as a community to take a moment to stop and stand still, welcome the fiery energy of the sun and nourish the light within. Plus, you will…

  • Feel AH-MAZING! – yoga and sea swimming (and dipping!) are renowned for their mental health and wellbeing benefits.
  • Receive a hot drink and a delicious treat
  • Be in with a chance to win a prize from our pick-in-mix raffle at the event. If you’re not there to pick a ticket you can’t win.
  • Help us create a community where everyone lives in a place they call home.

Learn more about the difference you make from real people who experienced the trauma of homelessness and who, with our assistance and financial support, put homelessness behind them for good.
