  Enroll in Course

Learn about the beliefs, Irish mythology, folklore and magic of the turning of the year in Ireland - with Irish Draoí Lora O'Brien.

Irish Pagan Holidays are rooted in the native traditions of the land and her people, giving us a more complex view than the NeoPagan wheel of the year. In this bundle of 5 Courses, you can explore the Pagan calendar from this perspective, and access practical advice on how to tune in to the Seasons and Sacred Cycles of Ireland.

The Baseline Course of this bundle is Seasons and Sacred Cycles, which covers:

  • - Rethinking the 'wheel' in Ireland's traditional 2 separate cycles.
  • - Naming the Festivals.
  • - Lora's Personal Practice.
  • - A look at the Irish Fire Festivals - Samhain, Imbolg, Bealtaine, Lúnasa.
  • - How to work with the Cross Quarters or Solar Cycle (Solstices and Equinoxes).
  • - Suggested Festival Ritual Structure for your Personal Practice.
  • - Resources and Recommended Reading.

From there, you can carry on learning through the whole year, with 4 more classes covering the Irish Fire Festivals in depth.

Each of these classes explores, for each of the Fire Festivals:

  • -- The name, meanings and pronunciations - with a native Irish speaker.
  • -- Irish history and traditions of the festival.
  • -- The most important elements or themes of this festival.
  • -- The biggest mistakes people make, so you don't have to.
  • -- Irish Gods or Goddesses associated with this festival.
  • -- Some obstacles we face as modern Pagans working with ancient traditions/ working outside Irish culture.
  • -- Shared native experiences and opinions.
  • -- Practical exercises, prompts, challenges.
  • -- A short Q&A session that was recorded during the live online class.

This bundle provides over 12 hours of quality content, including teaching presentations, bonus resources, and 5 unique Guided Journeys.

The combined cost for these classes when purchased individually is €200 or $250.

Course Curriculum

"Truly enjoyed this class. Seeing how the Seasons and Cycles are broken down, (The Fire Festival and Solar Cycles) from this perspective, the meanings behind them and how each is observed, celebrated and/or practiced today.. how it was years past. It really helped clear up a lot of mistruths I've heard over the years, and belayed a little worry I had going into learning about how to bring them into my own life. I look forward to digging a little deeper with a few of the mentioned resource books. Already have 'Myths, Legend, and Romance: An Encyclopedia of Irish Folk Tradition' in my amazon prime cart." - Dawn Otstot (for 'Seasons and Sacred Cycles')

Thank you for this class! What a treat to learn what *actual* Imbolg was/is like. In America, there are a lot of pagan/wiccans who go around and give wildly different accounts of what Imbolg is. I love that you bring actual texts/documents/sources to the table :) I really enjoyed it!
