About this course

Your tuath (your "tribe" in Irish) is calling . . . 

The goal of our Bean Gealach Circle ("Moon Woman" in Irish)  gatherings is simple: to support you in (re)awakening your essence and manifesting it in your way of being and in your practice, as you align with the energies of Mama Earth,  Father Sun and Seanmháthair Gealach  (Grandmother Moon in Irish), and (re)connect to your inner wise, wild and witchy Self.

Throughout each year, we will explore the many possibilities in our sacred journey through life. In this first year we will explore our Divine Feminine though our physical self and our spiritual archetypes in a woman's life, including the Celtic and worldwide goddess pantheon, and the goddesses who embody those archetypes, such as Brighid, Danu, Demeter, The Morrígan or Mórrígan, Persephone, Hekate, Lilith, Inanna and An Cailleach. And as an accredited Moon Mná Womn's Circle Facilitator, I will also be offering some of the Moon Mná sacred rites and blessings throughout the year(s).

We will create community together, finding the sacred in the everyday and in the small things of life. I love how Ojibway author Richard Wagamese, one of my favourite authors and guides, described this: "there's also the joy of small things: a hug, a conversation, playing a song all ragged and rough on an instrument, walking on the land, listening to great music or enjoying silence and a cup of tea. Rejoice. Fill yourself again."

Together we will listen to the voices and songs of the ancient mothers, share tales from our herstories; work with the Threshold Goddesses (and more!) in the Wheel of the Year and from around the world; explore our three Inner Cauldrons (some consider these the Celtic chakras); craft sacred objects; connect with the physical and spiritual realms of Land, Sea and Sky, and the liminal spaces between them, and step into our own deep inner wisdom and intuition.

And together, we will explore how we can bring that wisdom into our way of being, our soul work, our rituals and practices, and to hold space for each other as an Isumataq, from the Inukitut (Inuit) language meaning “the person who creates the atmosphere in which wisdom reveals itself”.

Each month, I will add new items to the Circle online library "Resources for Your Practice", and we will meet together on Zoom to chat, learn, connect, share, craft, and rejoice . . . filling our Selves once again.
