The Festivals of the Ancient Irish

This is a Worldwide Course with the Druid Forest School, to learn about prepare for and Celebrate the Festivals of the Ancient Irish:
The Fire Festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltain and Lughnasadh
The Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.

​This course is a chance to share and think about and develop your Festival celebration.
​When we celebrate the Festivals authentically and creatively in the way that is right for each of us as an individual, these festivals bring beauty and connection. They contribute power and healing to our lives.

The Druid Forest School itself celebrates the Eight Great Festivals with the North West Ireland Druid Group, and this course is a link to the rituals of that group.
​Our ancestors felt great significance in the turning of the seasons, their link to the fertility of the land. They put stupendous effort into constructing monuments with exact astronomical alignments.
They felt it was of crucial importance to be one with the great cycles of energy of the stars, the Sun and the Moon.
And of course, here, around us in the West of Ireland, there were also important local alignments as well such as The Bohea Stone and Croagh Patrick Mountain and Carrowmore.
Make your own personal, true, beautiful and honest, authentic understanding of the festivals.
Reading rote speeches can be pretty damaging.
Prepare for them with Michael Conneely and The Druid Forest School.
Discuss what rituals and ways of creating energy you find best for you. Discuss the suggestions in your favourite books.

Enable the true flame of the Festival’s connection to the great turning wheel of the seasons to grow in your heart and your mind so you can express and speak your true and beautiful vision, your Heart Song and your truth.
Share connection to the great cycles of the Earth and the Heavens.

Do ritual, vision work and make deep connection to the Goddesses and the Gods of the ancient Irish.
I will be honoured to share this in-depth journey of healing and empowerment with you.

We make a journey of connection to Earth, the Sea and the Sky, and to the sacred weapons of the tuatha de Danaan and to the Goddess and Gods of the ancient Irish
