Awaken to your Celtic Spirit
Event Details: Awaken to your Celtic Spirit
We are often asked about our lifestyle and our druidic path and as you can see from our website we share much about our school set-up, our magical practices and our public ceremonial activities as modern day Irish druids. However, no essay can adequately describe the actual experience so we are now offering you the opportunity to immerse your self in our way of life because you can now study and live at Ireland’s Druidschool as you awaken to your Celtic Spirit at our exclusive west of Ireland retreat.
We are offering a one-week opportunity to stay with us and gain basic experience as a Druí Dalta (student druid) . You can study and live with us as you begin to walk Slí an Druí, (the Path of the Celtic Lightworker) where you will take part in ceremony, learn basic Irish and participate in specialized classes. This is a new innovative approach to sharing the teachings of Ireland’s Druidschool at Castlerea, Co Roscommon in the west of Ireland. You will get to know the basis for sustainability and an ecological lifestyle with our Permaculture set up as you develop your spiritual awareness. You will be able to live, eat, speak, work and walk as a modern day Druid. Click here for info and photo’s of Ireland’s Druidschool
Studying at Ireland’s Druidschool
Each evening there is a specialized two-hour class on the skills and practices of the modern Druí.
* Sunday - the daily practice of The Celtic Druid’s Cross of Light and the Blessing to the Three Realms
* Monday - 3 Realms of Sky, Land and Sea and 3 Cauldrons of Warming, Vocation and Knowledge
* Tuesday - the Irish Pagan Calendar, Natural Time and the 4 main Celtic Gods of the Eightfold year
* Wednesday - the skill of divining subtle energy vortices (3D spirals) with a pendulum
* Thursday – advanced use of the Tarot Cards for your own Life Path guidance
* Friday – divining subtle energy currents with brass ‘L’ shaped divining rods (we provide the rods)
On the Saturday you will be taken out on a full day for a sacred site tour in the locality where you will practice your subtle energy divining skills with ‘L’ rods and with your Pendulum – you will learn the secrets of the design and layout of the ancient temples of Ireland. The above list is subject to change without notice. During your stay - all greetings, phrases and words used ceremony will be given to you as Gaeilge (in Irish) and their meaning explained in English. You will begin to practice speaking ‘as Gaeilge’ in our native Celtic language – learning some Irish words is part of connecting to the Celtic way.
Living at Ireland’s Druidschool
A typical day with us starts with a nourishing healthy breakfast at 9am followed by a walk in Nature. On returning we energize our Lightbodies in our Ceremonial Enclosure (Torc) with the Celtic Druid’s Cross of Light and the Blessing to the Three Realms. Next, your tasks for the day are allotted to you; this may be a series of small jobs or outdoor work such as tidying / fencing / dog walking / tree planting / turf and wood / painting and cleaning and whatever other ‘jobs’ need to be done and this may include refurbishing the 200 year old cow shed in to a new Pagan Temple. We stop in the middle of the day for a full and hearty lunch, and then we go back to work. You are required to be physically able for such work and you must bring suitable sturdy footwear, gloves and light outdoor rainproof clothing. While working in the school and or other buildings / farm you are asked to leave all your usual worldly concerns to one side and to listen to your intuition. We live a simple rustic lifestyle and attune our selves to the rhythms of the weather and nature. At 5:30 the working day ends and we have dinner around 6pm. After ‘wash-up’ you have some personal time before evening classes begin at 7:30. Classes end at 9:30ish and you then have time to contemplate your day and write in your journal.
