Get Back to Basics with the Most Common Q&A about the Othercrowd - Irish Fairies.

  Enroll in Course

Online Course Answering the Most Common Questions about Irish Fairies, Sidhe, Fair Folk, Good Neighbours, The Othercrowd, or whatever you're calling them! - with a Native Irish Draoí (Druid Priest).

In this class, we will answer questions such as:

  • -- Are they real?
  • -- What are they?
  • -- What different types are there?
  • -- Are they small?
  • -- Are they nice, or friendly?
While there aren’t exactly categorical, definitive answers to these and other common questions about the Irish Fairies, in this course we’ll look at the Irish relationship to our Sidhe, and the views our ancestors might take based on our own folklore and traditions.

You get 2 hours of Teaching Presentation in your online course, then a separate Guided Journey to facilitate direct connection - a safe, guided method to get to know the Irish Sidhe, if you'd like to (this is NOT mandatory!) – using Lora’s native Irish Otherworld Journeying technique.

This Teaching, and the Guided Journey, are suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in other traditions. You do not have to be dedicated to or working with any Irish Fairies to take this class.

Your Course access enrollment includes:

  • -- Class Presentation Slides
  • -- Class Video
  • -- Class Audio
  • -- Class Chat Log/Resources
  • -- Guided Journey Video
  • -- Guided Journey Audio (for you to repeat the Journey)
