Celtic Visions: Seership, Omens and Divination from Nature - with Caitlín Matthews
'Once the intent and search for an answer has begun, nature becomes charged with meaning and is a book that we can always read.' (Caitlín Matthews)
This course explores the realm of Celtic seership, divination and vision that was once the preserve of the druidic seers of the Celtic world who used subtle perception to reveal nature's truth and the soul’s knowledge. Caitlín has made a special study of the oracular and sacred traditions, finding simple, practical ways by which these methods can illuminate the present moment. Participants will learn how to read the omens of the natural world and use traditional methods, including 'the Three Illuminations' - ancient Irish modes of oracular divination by incantation, resonance and shamanic incubation - and 'the Augury of Brighid' which was employed by the ancestral freers of Gaelic Scotland. There will be opportunities to give and receive oracles and auguries, by means of the dha shealladh or 'the two seeings' and by other traditional methods.
‘There are three candles that illuminate every darkness: Truth, Nature and Knowledge.’ -ancient Irish triad
