FREE - The Dagda - Hearth Hero & Domestic Deity

Exploring the Deeds of the Dagda as a Guide to Healthy Masculinity.

Among the Tuatha Dé Danann there was one they knew as the The Dagda, 'the goodly one'. He was their great Irish God of wizardry and druid craft; warrior, hero, chieftain, and King. Yet, though this man bore many names, one of the most well know is Ollathar, 'father of many'... and it is to this title that we will turn to today.

In this course we will dive into Ireland's ancient lore and explore the Dagda's role as a father and hearth keeper; a deity of domestic life, and a role model for healthy masculinity today.

  • -- Class Presentation Slides

"Second after the ancient texts I listen to what Jon has to say about An Dagda. His original work is so faithful to the sources that it's almost indistinguishable. There just isn't a better contemporary source." - Mac de Bride (UK)
