Samhain Ritual & Practice

The Fire Festivals Ritual Series

  Enroll in Course

Online Class Series providing practical rituals for all seasons, as we work through the Fire Festivals Cycle in the Irish Tradition.

Have you ever wanted to do a ritual to authentically celebrate the Irish Fire Festivals (Samhain, Imbolg, Bealtaine, or Lúnasa)... but weren't sure what to do or where to start?

Each session in this series will cover the basic associations and practices for each festival to give you a good grounding with regard to the ancient Samhain traditions in Ireland. Then you'll move into the main event - a ritual attuned to those associations, including guided meditation and original Irish language prayers.

This ritual can be personalised afterwards for your own use, but will give you a solid framework right now, which you can develop further as your personal practice grows.

You will learn:

  • -- What Irish God and/or Goddess is associated with Samhain, and why?
  • -- What Irish folk practices & traditions were/are known to be practised at Samhain?
  • -- A simple ritual framework to build relationship with these deities, incorporating the authentic associations & practices.
  • -- How to take this ritual & respectfully personalise it to suit your own practice.

This 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.


Your Course access enrollment below includes access to:

  • -- Class Presentation Slides
  • -- Class Video
  • -- Class Audio
  • -- Class Chat Log/Resources
  • -- Guided Meditation (10-20 min)
  • -- Unique Irish Language Prayers (including pronunciation guides)
  • -- Q&A Session (recorded during live class)

You will get the unique perspective of a native Irish devotee and practitioner, an Irish language speaker who is dedicated to the Goddess Brig (Brighid, Brigid).

This is a completely self-paced online course series - you can take each class one at a time, a few weeks before the Fire Festival will happen, so you have time to prepare.

Orlagh is such a beautiful presenter and knowledgeable teacher! I enjoyed this course thoroughly; it laid another layer to the foundation upon I intend to build my relationship with Brigit. At a time when a lot of misinformation and counterfeit 'Celtic' stuff is circulated ... having access to such a thoroughly researched materials, and to rituals led by a native teacher who is dedicated to preserve the authentic Brigit- is a priceless gift!!

Do I need to have Irish ancestry to study here?
No, absolutely not. We provide authentic connection to Ireland, with native Irish teachers, for anyone who wishes to learn from us and is willing to put in the time and effort to do this properly... rather than grab a culturally appropriated quick fix.

This was wonderfully informative. I particularly appreciated Orlagh sharing her personal practice and gnosis, and was able to put together a daily devotional practice with what I learned here.
