Bealtaine: Kindling the Flame of Devotion, A Tour of Southwest Ireland
April 28 – May 6, 2018
Bealtaine is a time when the tides of the year are turning, when winter is losing its hold on the earth, and summer is surging in to seize the land. The energy that had been drawn back in towards the hearth at Samhain is turning outwards again, returning to the wilds and the woods, the shore and the strand, as human activity turns outwards again as well. Join us at this pivotal time of year to connect to this energy, as we tour the area around the Beara Peninsula and County Cork, visiting sacred sites and honoring the Gods and spirits of the land.
Mystic South 2018
July 12 – 15
Hiddenfolk, Witches & Elves: A Pagan Pilgrimage Thru Iceland’s Magical Landscape
September 18 – 25, 2018
We have set our course to the crossroads of continents where fire and ice meet, amidst the turbulent ocean. A place where dark, liminal tales take place in barren fells, cacophonous waterfalls, and colors beyond imagining. A place where the aurora dances in the skies, casting her light upon the land. We have set our course for a land that lies between the old and the new, one foot in the modern world and one in the age of sagas. A land of black sand beaches where ghosts still walk and trolls lurk. A land where elf-churches can be found in boulders that reroute highways. A land where the earth and sea still hold the memories of the old ways, even as new ways are embraced and lived.
Celtic Sorcery Intensive
November 9-11, 2018
The Celtic cultures of Ireland, Britain, and Gaul provide us with rich and ancient wells of magical lore: blessing and purification rites; protective charms and spells; fate-binding and foredestination; dire curses and battle sorceries. These many forms draw on the traditions of poetic incantation and the power of the Otherworld. This weekend intensive draws on folk tradition, archaeological study, early literature, and extensive personal experience, to explore these traditions of magic and sorcery in depth, while seeking insight through them into Celtic worldviews and cosmologies.
