The Dead Pagan - the Quandary of Quiddity
Limited Capacity seats available

What happens to us when we die? To the body, the spirit, to our memories? How can we realistically and effectively serve the dying, the dead and the bereaved of our communities? What does it actually mean to be dead? To understand the nuts and bolts of any society, look at the manner by which they care for their dead. Join Coroner, Druid and author - Kristoffer Hughes - on a moving, tragic, hilarious and challenging rollercoaster ride into the dark and often ignored world of death.

CANCELLED - Healing Roots Culture and Spirituality
Limited Capacity seats available

THIS SESSION HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO SCHEDULING CONSTRAINTS.

Culture provides coherence to human experience.  It can give us a sense of connection to ancestors, to  place, and to the cosmos.  Culture gives meaning and power to spiritual practices.  How are culture and spirituality interconnected in your own practice?   What implications does that question hold for issues of culture appropriation, decolonization, and movements for liberation?

The Cauldrons of Poesy - A Modern Way of Working with Ancient Teachings
Limited Capacity seats available

Using the 6th cent. Irish poet Amergin's poem ‘The Cauldron of Poesy’ along side Taliesin poems ‘The Spoils of Annwfon’ and the ‘The Hostile Confederacy’ as a basis, I will explore ways of interpreting and working with ancient teachings that keep this material vital and relevant for todays spiritual journeyers and magic workers.
Part active meditation and part exploration of the cauldron generally within our myths, legends and magical practice. I will also look to bring a deeper perspective on how we all work with this most fundamental of magical tools, its deep relevance within the myths as a vessel of the soul, as well as the cauldron of inspiration and the vehicle by which the Awen is expressed.

Druid Magic
Limited Capacity seats available

The mythology of Ireland, Wales and Scotland are filled with spell-casting Druid magicians, but modern Druidry does not always wear that magical tradition on its sleeve. A lifestyle or way of life to some, a spiritual path to others, a religious tradition to others still, the path of the modern Druid ‘magician’ is one that has become shrouded in mist. But to me Druidry, ancient and modern, has magic at its very core. During this talk we will be exploring some of those ancient tales and meeting up close and personal some of the Druid magicians of old. We will then be exploring how magic influences, sometimes imperceptibly, the modern Druid path, and then looking at how Druid magic can be nurtured, learned, and directed in our modern lives.
