The Indigenous Celtic Medicine Wheel

Are you curious about our own indigenous mythology and culture?
Do you feel drawn to becoming indigenous to our own land?

Many of us, at this time, are experiencing a call to return to an ancient way of honouring our lands, our ancestors, the Spirits of our wild places, and most importantly, ourselves.
There is a whole wealth of interest in the idea of Celtic Spirituality as key to becoming indigenous to our own land.
We invite you to explore this legacy in a weekend immersion into Celtic cosmology, in which we will reveal the existence of an indigenous Medicine Wheel for our lands; not one that has been borrowed from other cultures. We will hear its story, and learn methods of putting the wisdom into practice.
We will be focusing only on this particular area of deep spiritual practice, following the ancient instructions passed down to us, from our Celtic ancestors in the form of a mythological story. This story contains deep wisdom and information which is surprisingly relevant for our lives today. It will connect us more deeply with our ancestry, but also give us a truly incredible tool for navigating our modern existence. There is magic here!
IMPORTANTLY, this includes learning to free oneself of inaccurate and romantic projections as to the nature of such practices, and to challenge ourselves to accept new understanding.
Key Learnings & Transformations:
Current misconceptions around Celtic cosmology
Introduction to the Mythology
The Four Winds, and their attributes
The Great Centre and its attributes
The Colours of the Four Directions
The Four Otherworldly Cities
The Four Talismans and the Deities associated with them
This weekend will be very journey/meditation focused and very intense. It is therefore preferable that participants have some experience in journey/meditation practice, or who have completed the Introduction to Celtic Seer-ship and Shamanic Practice online course, and so is not suitable for complete beginners.

A £50 deposit is required at time of booking with us. For more details, including how to pay and what to bring with you, please contact us.

Also please contact us if you would like to host this workshop.

 

Imm-ra - A Voyage into Celtic Sprituality

Many of us, at this time, are experiencing a call to return to an ancient way of honouring our lands, our ancestors, the Spirits of our wild places, and most importantly, ourselves.

There is a whole wealth of interest in the idea of Celtic Spirituality as key to becoming indigenous to our own land.

We invite you to explore this legacy in a residential weekend immersion into Celtic cosmology, religion and practice, based on the evidence of archaeology, historical and native writings, and the enduring mythology of Britain and Ireland.

This workshop is for people who have experience with Shamanic Journeying, and have a strong working relationship with their Guides and Allies. Or who have completed the Introduction to Celtic Seer-ship and Shamanic Practice online course, and so is not suitable for complete beginners.

Focusing on the spiritual practices of our Celtic ancestors based on:

The evidence of archaeology

The history and native writings

The Animistic and Shamanistic experiences of the facilitator Samantha MacLaren

Including:

The Nine Elements of the Tradition - The key elements of cosmology and belief that tie all Celtic nations together regardless of location or era. We will journey to The Well of Wisdom to receive insight and guidance to help with our understanding.

The Existence of an Indigenous Medicine Wheel for our Lands - Its story and methods of putting the wisdom into practice.

This will be the main focus of our study this weekend, and will include a lot of guided journey work, including some challenges to our previous notions about what is 'Celtic' and what is not.

Meeting the Gods - Methods of connecting and developing a reciprocal relationship with these Forces.

A Meditation/Healing Practice, using the wisdom of the Three Cauldrons.

A £50 deposit is required at time of booking with us. For more details, including how to pay and what to bring with you, please contact us.
