The lush, green lands of the Celts are alive with the healing energies of the ancestors, ancient gods and goddesses and the Bards, Druids and Faeries of Celtic history and lore.

They call to us – no matter our native land – drawing us to the wisdom of the early shamans and the transformative practices of indigenous cultures.

These energies, the stories of these lands and the practices inspired by Celtic shamanism – steeped in gratitude, generosity, courage and wonder – offer us a medicine to bring us back home, to our true Self.

They help us reach beyond the mundane and overwhelm of our stressful modern lives and be more attentive, present and receptive to the beauty and wisdom of the land.

Celtic shamanism invites us to open to the world and our lives with awe and wonder at its great mysteries – both the light and the dark. Its wisdom guides us in seeing and honoring the sacred in all things, including ourselves.

The myths, archetypes and practices unique to this ancient tradition remind us of the courage needed to explore all that is before us – the earth and all its beauty and “rough places”, the Otherworld and its inhabitants.

When we learn to approach our lives with less fear and more curiosity and gratitude, we can slow down enough to open to the wisdom all around us, including our own inner wisdom, our Soul and its true desires.

In the modern world, we have lost this deep poetic passion, this connecting thread. Our link with myth and nature’s preserving shrine has been shattered; our lives follow the rapid rhythm of machines instead of liquid bird song or the blowing of wind through scented trees. Still, some people attempt to break free from the tyranny of scientific materialism that dis-spirits and de-sacralizes the natural world.

Celtic shamanism has rites to celebrate the turning of the seasons, rituals for marking the passages of human life and celebrations of the waxing and waning of the moon. We seek to reconnect with the rhythms of our ancestors, to touch and share their experience of the sacred through acknowledging the movement of time in its cycles. In small individual acts of courage, we attempt to re-weave the fabric of our poetic connections with nature.

Can it be said that we are all Celts? Certainly, Western civilization owes as much, if not more, to our Celtic heritage as to Greek and Roman influences.

The time has come for Celtic shamanism to quietly return to the Earth, to take its place among the Spiritual practices that help humans lead fuller, more beneficial lives. No one can find the Light for you; each of us can only point the way for others. Everyone’s experiences will be different. Over a period of time, you will find your own explorations into the Otherworld’s changing, expanding, becoming more detailed and richer as you practice this type of shamanism.

During this course we connect with each of the eight Celtic festivals.

Working with the seasons and celebrating these holidays can help you create rhythm and flow in your life.

These festivals are the perfect checkpoints throughout the year to honor your need for action, celebration, gratitude and rest.

It is my sincere hope that you will immerse yourself fully in these ancient teachings and traditions, drawing inspiration from them, coming back to a knowingness of things past.

Don’t try to memorize anything. As a shaman, you are only trying to get an over-all picture so you will know what to look for on a journey.
