The three Realms are outside of us; the realm of sky above us, the realm of sea below us and the realm of land all around us. We interact with these realms on a daily basis, each realm interacts with the other but has it's own unique qualities and wisdom available to us when we consciously connect.
These realms are mirrored inside of us too. In the April weekend workshop we focus on the realm of Sky, all that is above us. We take a good look at the skies during this weekend, lots of cloud watching and star gazing. We take a look at our own sky realm, inside of us- our own wisdom and how we interact with the rest of the world.
During each weekend workshop we present an understanding on the principals of True Time, this is the cycle of the sun, the moon, the stars and the planets we look at the 8 solar ceremonies and how they connect with solar and stellar events. We also explore Celtic mythology and how the stories are mirrored in the sky above us. On the Saturday evening we guide you in a deep dreaming, this is a visualization that takes place in our lovely warm Hemp Hall with underfloor heating. This visualization will bring you to meet the ancestors and you will bring back a personal message to guide you on your path.
We will demonstrate and teach a series of simple energy exercises, gentle movements coordinated with the breath and some simple Irish words. These exercises help us to focus on our connections with the natural world around us.
"A very relaxed warm hospitable down to earth non hierarchical welcome upon arriving helped make the weekend fun as well as highly educational. Only being 4 people in the group as opposed to 40 definitely made the weekend very personal to all there and showed that druid school is very genuine about the work they do with people there. I had a great weekend from which I left feeling very refreshed and positive. Thanks Con and Niamh."
