I weave the teachings of Celtic beliefs and practices into both my individual work and my retreat formats. Opening the doorway to the Ancestral Powers is an integral aspect of my healing paradigm. My ancestral lineage is Irish and the exploration of the Celtic mysteries is a passion of mine. The Celts experienced the world from an animistic perspective holding that everything in the natural world has spirit and is a necessary part of the world soul. The Celts also believed that the soul transforms through different incarnations in the ongoing cycle of death and rebirth. In addition, the Celtic mythologies contain teaching wisdom that can be interpreted in contemporary ways as sources of guidance for our present life challenges. My trips to Ireland allow me to deepen into the indigenous energies of my ancestral land and have direct experience of a continuous spiritual lineage that goes back thousands of years.
