  Enroll in Course

This class offers students an indepth exploration of various folkloric brings connected to water, including: the maighdean mhara, merrow, rón (aka selkie), each uisce, & even leprechauns. The class centres beliefs, practices, and stories about these beings to illustrate who and what they are. Taught by Morgan Daimler who has 20 years experience studying Otherworldly folklore, focused on Ireland.

Students will learn to navigate the often confusing waters of the creatures found across both sea and freshwater folklore. Through story, anecdotes, and discussion we explore the connection between humans, the waters, and the magical beings found within them. Students will take away a better understanding of who these beings are, what they are, and the dangers & blessings they represent.

The Class will cover:

  • Maighdean mhara & mermaids
  • Merrows
  • Rónta (selkies)
  • Each uisce (water horses)
  • Dobarchu
  • Leprechauns
  • Deities associated with water

The class will include both stories from Irish folklore and anecdotal accounts - students will receive a variety of handouts for further reading, including lists of both articles and videos/movies

"The Fairy Faith in Practice was the most amazing class! Even though I have red several excellent books on the subject (by Morgan Daimler) nothing could compare to hear her speak , answer questions and lead an interesting discussion. I have enjoyed all 4 parts of this class and QA that were very insightful and helpful. The class was very well structured, meaning that different aspects of the Fairy Faith were addressed and nicely integrated together so that everything makes perfect sense . Before coming to this class I had many questions, and all have been answered. Morgan's expertise helped me a lot and I grateful for that. And thankful to IPS for the opportunity to take this class."
