Our allies, the thirteen native trees of the lunar year help to deepen our connection with the natural world and provide rooted companionship, insight and support. 


This unique programme supports us to recover the wisdom teachings of Ireland‘s spiritual and cultural heritage perceiving continuity and unity in the oneness of creation - so that we may grow together in strength and community.


The Celtic Calendar offers a potent and ever-green and grounded map offering a harmonious perception of our place in nature, and a rooted understanding of our inner world.

Healing has been a key theme of interest - in particular the concept of psycho-social healing and the role that Ireland could play in this. Irish Medicine and this Journey through the Celtic Calendar is also the culmination of this enquiry and exploration of “Ireland as Medicine“. The German Artist- Shaman Joseph Beuys famously believed that Ireland was the place that could heal the world. As a “wounded healer“ - Ireland does indeed exhibit a history of suffering, loss and oppression - and yet a timeless buoyant spirit so full of deep seated emotion and heart continues to emanate from this once lauded Island of Saints and Scholars. We look to a shift of perception to timeless soulful spirituality, reclaiming the roots of a Christianity in harmony with nature and the cosmos - a capacity to access the magical dimensions of consciousness and to re-enchant a world weary of the dead-end conclusions of myopic materialism : to anchor a new way of being in the world.
