See my YouTube video on my Ogham Distance Learning Course and the 15th letter of the Ogham Celtic Tree Alphabet: The Elder Tree: 

ogham elder ruisThe Ogham is the ancient Celtic Tree Alphabet of the Irish Druids. I take you through the twenty tree-letters, and at the same time we traverse the pathways through the Celtic Otherworlds. Each tree-energy equates to one of these paths.

For details of the course, see:
For each Ogham Letter you receive two soundfiles, wherever you are in the world. The first is a presentation of the spiritual energy and tradition of that tree; the second is a journey to trance drumming where you enter the Ogham states of consciousness. After each journey you correspond with me as friend and guide for the Journey.

The Elder tree is the 15th letter of the Ogham alphabet system I use, and it is the 19th Journey through the Otherworlds. It is very much a preparation for the final 20th journey which is Yew. Elder is very much associated with ‘the blush of shame’ and dealing with any tendency for revenge but rather is it calling for healing and forgiveness to prepare us for the death and rebirth of the Yew journey. Through Elder we find the protection of Elder Woman or the Crone Goddess.

So, basically I send you a sound file with full information about each Tree (its energy and meaning, and how it is part of the Celtic Otherworlds) and a second sound file offering you a journey to trance drumming so you can make your own connection to the tree and to the Ogham letter and the Celtic Otherworlds. The next thing is: you do the work (asking any questions you might have beforehand if you need to). After doing the work you let me know how you got on via email or skype

Please don’t hesitate to contact me further. Glad to work with you.

I look forward to hearing, Michael
