The Cailleach (The Witch)
The Caileach, The Midwife, The Wise Woman, The Witch
Spend a day training with an Irish Witch and connect with the Goddess of the Land
Once this island was the home of the Tuatha de Dannen, the people of the Goddess Danu.
A magical race, they built places like Newgrange, Uisneach and Tara. They gave us Holidays to mark the passing of the year like Bealtaine and Samhain.
In time, the Celts arrived and it was agreed that the land would be divided in two, the Celts taking the land above and the Magical people went below.
Over the centuries stories were told and retold, and the magical people became associated with the mysterious mounds and standing stones and they were referred to as Faeries. Some had such a strong following they evolved into Saints. The Goddess Brid became Saint Bridget.
This is a day of exploration, a day to explore the real and ancient culture of Old Ireland. A Day to connect with the land in a way you never have before, to create a connection that will stay with you forever.
Your day is divided into two halves
The morning is spent learning about the old traditions, the Goddesses and Gods and the Celtic Wheel of the Year
The second part of the day is a special walk up a sacred mountain. At the summit, we will conduct a small ritual and you will partake in a guided meditation. This meditation will give you a deep insight into who you are and your place in this world. Finally, we will conduct another ritual of letting go before descend from the mountain
I have been practicing this ancient craft for over 25 years and am conscious that in this current time, more and more people, in particular, women are searching for a path to follow, perhaps this is the one?
