"[The Class] was really wonderful. Highly recommend getting the recording. Lora's focus is Irish practices, but the ideas--where the druidic revival came from (upper class English white men), the exporting and then reimporting of native spiritual practices, the colonial attitude of, "I can take this piece from this practice and that piece from another practice and make it my own," instead of going to the roots of a practice and really working with it--yeah, it was amazing and heavy and challenging."
