In the 2021/22 Celtic Wheel cycle, Level II is a mythical journey of discovery around the Celtic ritual calendar inspired by the myth of the Odyssey of Cessair.
This is the deepest way to work with me. An immersive interactive deep dive into the Celtic Wheel in community with other women drawn to this lineage.
As we voyage through the 2021/22 ritual year together
we will be working with three wisdoms from our rich mythology which can inspire us to
Cessair was the fiesty leader of the first inhabitants of Ireland. She was refused a place on Noah’s Ark. So she built three more arks, gathered 50 women (the Mothers of the World) and 3 men. They set sail for Inis Fáil (Land of Destiny, or Ireland) to start anew. As we travel together we invoke our inner Ceasair and become new world-makers.
“The Irish encounter with the divine was not a thunder god Yahweh who frightened and commanded, offering tablets of stone, rather it was a sea god, Manannán Mac Lir, whose gift was a Silver Branch , a way of seeing, seeing deeply” Sandy Dunlop.
Our year long voyage will invoke this wiser, more sovereign Silver Branch perception in us which allows us to see with new eyes ……beyond and beneath “the matrix”!
We will encounter the idea of the mythical fifth province (cúige), a unifying mythical centre. We will take up the invitation into the sacred marriage(banais ríghe) of our inner feminine and masculine at the sacred centre as we redefine power and reclaim our sovereignty as women.
