  Enroll in Course

Fáistine, f. (gs. ~, pl. -ní). (Act of) prophesying; prophecy, soothsaying; divination.

Neo Pagan and New Age approaches to our ancient Irish Ogham alphabet are most often based on long discredited notions written by Robert Graves in his book The White Goddess. This, mo chairde, is not that.

In this class, we will look at:

  • -- What sort of Ogham tools are available (to buy or make)?
  • -- Types of boards, cloths, and layouts you could use?
  • -- How to cleanse, consecrate, and build relationship with your Ogham tools?
  • -- Sample meanings for the individual Feda (letters)?
  • -- Daily divination for personal practice and devotions?
  • -- How to bring it all together for full divination readings?

The teaching is suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in this area, or in other traditions. You do not have to be dedicated to, or working with, any Irish Gods, Guides, or Guardians to take this class.

Reviews for Lora's 'Introduction to Ogham' Class -

"So many things from this class clicked and rang true and have stuck with me overnight. Waking up this morning your quote about how right relationship isn't just about the taking of a relationship, but the fluidity and flow and balance between those within the relationship still resonates. Especially when we apply that to the relationship between us and Ogham or Gaeilge in general. Really looking forward to jumping next to Future Learn and the other resources you shared, after that is, first from getting back from purchasing flash cards and more sticky notes! :-p Go raibh maith agat and hugs!"
