Learn the Basics of Meditation and Lora O'Brien's Irish Journeying Method, with our Level One Guided Journeys Class - The Beach

Online Class Teaching the Foundations in an Irish Meditation Journey Method, uniquely blending modern psychological insight and ancient Otherworld traditions - with a Native Irish Draoí (Druid Priest).

Spanning a breadth of Irish Mythology, Allegory, Psychology, and Native Irish Journeying techniques, in this class you'll learn how to travel safely to and from the boundary edges of the Irish Otherworld, and access Level One of this system - Working on the Beach.

In this free meditation class, we discuss topics such as:

  • -- What are Guided Journeys?
  • -- Why Learn This Particular Method?
  • -- What Can Stop You Meditating/Journeying?

The materials will provide practical tools to explore your personal development, introduce you to this system, and build strong foundations for further travel in the Irish Otherworld. The technique can form a solid basis for all your Spiritual & Magical work, as it has for the teacher's own (and that of many other students) during the last decade and more.

"The Journey’s program was an amazing experience that not only helped me to relax and center myself. It helped to deepen my practice spiritually using Lora’s technique on the 'Beach'. I learned many things about myself with each journey and felt that I was building on each experience. I highly recommend it!"

Why is it Free - What's the Catch?
I am a Priest and a Draoí of the Old Religion of Ireland. As such, I have a duty of service and responsibility to my community, and to any who want to connect to Ireland in an authentic way. Yes, I could charge for the free courses I offer through the Irish Pagan School. To be honest, I think some folk might appreciate them more, and do more work with the materials, if they were paying for it?! BUT, there's plenty to pay for if you want to support the work I do. This one is a gift from a Draoí, for free.

I have found your journeys to be so much better than any that I have been offered. I love how you get everyone started - especially the beach! I am very much into liminal time and space and the beach, being an edge, certainly is liminal space. I believe that most anyone, after doing a few of these, will be well on their way to independent journies of their own.
