Samhain in Ireland

Online Class about how we Celebrate the Samhain Fire Festival (Halloween) in Irish Paganism

  Enroll in Course

Online Class which covers Samhain pronunciation, what is Samhain or Halloween as it is commonly known, rituals for Samhain, and of course the native Irish traditions around this 'Celtic' Fire Festival - with a Native Irish Draoí (Druid Priest).

This Fire Festivals series, with Lora O'Brien, examines topics such as:

  • -- 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 during the live online class.

You get 2-3 hours of Teaching Presentation in your online class, then a separate Guided Journey to facilitate your direct connection to the themes/ topics/ Gods or Guardians we have been learning about – using Lora’s native Irish Otherworld Journeying method.

(You can take the free class to learn the basics of Level One in this method here - https://irishpaganschool.com/p/level-one-2020 - but it is not necessary to complete Level One to get the value from this class and journey.)

This Teaching, and the Guided Journey, are suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in other traditions. You do not have to be dedicated to or working with any Irish Gods, Guides, or Guardians to take this class.
