In this two-day weekend class, we will journey together through the mystical and medicinal past of the Celtic people, stopping along the way to learn mythology, indigenous spiritual beliefs, plant wisdom, and the basics of unlocking and working with magic from a pan-Celtic lens. We will also discuss several plants of singular importance to the Celtic people during the Winter season, and make medicine and spiritual tools with them that can be taken home. Topics covered will include: history and myth, the four elements, Celtic ritual practices, basic herbal medicine, gods and goddesses of the Celtic pantheon, ancestral dreamwork, tree magic and tree medicine, Winter rituals, and much more.
Class taught by Rylan Sían.
