Cailleach doll by Jude lally
She existed way before people ever arrived to the northern lands. It was She who arranged the landscape, mountains perfectly balanced and lochs perfectly filled. She has no known genealogy as she is old, older than the very hills. She is the landscape, born from a primordial world.
I confess, I lied. This course isn’t an introduction to the Cailleach it is a submersion. It’s a pilgrimage, an exploration, a journey to find her roots and a rebirthing of her in our world today. You’ll travel from Ireland to Scotland visiting her sacred sites and a guided meditation & shamanic journey to take you between the worlds.

You’ll explore the evolution of her myth and her role alongside the Goddess Brighid. We’ll pick up her trail that leads us to Old Europe and explore what this figure means to us today and how we can weave her into the fabric of our lives.
This course is an online go at your own pace course with journal prompts, guided meditations and suggestions for building an altar as you move through the course. There is also a private Facebook group where you can connect and share your experiences.
