As the days grow shorter and the nights longer maybe among the falling leaves, or in the air on a frosty morning you might hear the call of the old crone. She is old, far older than you can really contemplate. She’s older than the mountains, so old that she remembers when the very ocean was a forest covered with trees.
This five-session course overs:
Session 1 – Her Great Age
Theories covering a race of Cailleach’s
Session 2 – Pilgrimage
We will virtually visit some of her sacred sites in Ireland and some in Scotland
Session 3 – Her Changing Story
We’ll look at a range of stories and consider if her story has changed and contemplate why
Session 4 – Down to the Roots
In this session, we explore her folklore, follow it as far as we can to see if it gives us any hints on her origin.
Session 5 – Her Role For Our Time
As a figure who is connected to the Bean Feasa (the Wise Woman), we will consider her relevance to us today.
The course also offers guided meditations, a week by week opportunity to build a Cailleach altar and a community where you can share your ideas and insights.
