"I love Lora’s teaching style and find myself re-examining so much of my prior learning and enjoying my practice so much more; I’ve definitely rediscovered a connection that was waning prior to engaging with these courses. Thank you!"

"Thank you for the class, Lora. I am already enrolled in others and am learning many new things. I've been everything you can think of (Episcopal, Evangelical, Unitarian, pre-Vatican 2 Catholic, Atheist, Buddhist) in the process of searching for The Divine and finding out if there truly is anything beyond and after this physical existence. I'm not sure what my skeptical mind will accept at this point in my life but I am willing to give Irish Paganism an honest, deep look. Thank you for giving your time and devotion to opening this world up to seekers like me 🙂"

"So informative and organized and I love the no BS attitude and disclaimers about UPG. I also loved the records about Irish Folk cures and knowledge on when to plant, when to harvest, when to remove warts from your eyes! As my first class, I am so glad that I feel like I spent the last 2.5+ hours learning something practical and meaningful. Even the example of the Moon Phases in terms of Excercise/Weight Loss was really useful in helping me understand considering the entire Lunar Cycle in your goals and practice. I am not sure what or how I am going to write this prayer or meditation but the Super New Moon is in 14 days so we will find out!"
