Draíocht Ceoil

Sound and Magic in an Irish Tradition, with a Native Irish File

  Enroll in Course

Online Class which explores the Irish magical tradition of Sound and Music , with a native File (Poet).

Draíocht Ceoil is an Irish folk magic tradition with its roots in our Druidic/ Filí heritage. It focuses on the use of sound including words to create magical effect; also to understand the sounds found in the natural world and use them to attune spirit to place. Sound can be used to change the energy of a place, manipulate crowd energy, or focus spell work. Music and word was inextricably linked in Irish traditions, and Draíocht Ceoil has many facets and equally, many uses.

Part 1 will cover:
  • Introduction to Draíocht Ceoil
  • Druidic and Old Irish roots
  • Folk magic tradition

Part 2 and Part 3 will include practical examples, lots of noise, and fun!

Covering the magical properties of sound, such as:

  • Man made sound high/medium/low notes
  • And sound in nature "whisper, song, roar"
  • Awareness of Sound, affect of sound on individual/groups/places.
Combining sound and word to produce magical change and transformation:
  • Using music with existing magical practices
  • Using music to help spirituality
  • Using sound in nature to connect to land.

(Review on Geraldine's Rosc Class)

"Go raibh míle maith agat Geraldine Moorkens Byrne for this amazing class: you opened up a new horizon to my practice and endowed me with new tools to make my soul's voice not just heard, but alas listened to. Lora, you have created a sanctuary of learning and education, a place for seekers to gather around authentic Irish spiritual practice, lore, and knowledge. I don't think there are enough words to express my gratitude for all what you do, really."

-- Daniela Simina, Irish Pagan School Student.

(Review on Geraldine's Rosc Class)

"What an amazing course this is. Took me a bit longer to get through it being back to work full time, and as I watched it threw the first time, of all the courses I've taken so far I wish I could have been available for the live zoom. I know I will be re-watching the course at least 1 or 2 more times to truly absorb all the knowledge... Thank you both Lora and Geraldine for the time and wisdom you have brought to all of us. I am more the an excited to started meditating and getting my on Rosc started. Please do come back again Geraldine, you and Lora compliment each other well, and I would love to learn further on the Draíocht Ceoil."
