Saturday, 7th August - $5 workshop
This workshop will cover the phonetic systems of both Irish and Welsh, and give you lots of opportunities to practice things like names of deities (with your mic off). You will leave with useful references and resources to take you forward.
Approximately 3 hours, with a break.
Saturday, 7th August at 12 noon Pacific/3 pm Eastern/8 pm UK time.
Irish deities, Welsh deities - how different are they?
Saturday, 5th June - facebook live stream
Irish texts occasionally mention that some of the characters in the stories are gods. That doesn't really happen in texts like The Mabinogi. I'll be attempting to unravel the reasons for this difference, and also looking at things like cognate deities between the two cultures, and goodness knows what else!

Saturday, May 22nd. Sorting out the Druids - facebook Live stream
I've had a request to talk about Macha - which I am always pleased to do. Her stories are very diverse, so I'm sure I will come up with something to say, and there will be time for questions and general chat as well.
This is one of the dates aimed at including folk who live in North America and find an evening meeting time more convenient, so it is scheduled for 6 pm Pacific/9 pm Eastern (and 2 am in the UK, if you're a night-owl).
As always, there will be time for an informal chat at the beginning and end of the meeting.
If you are not currently a patron, you can join for as little as $2 in order to access this event.

Meeting Rhiannon in May - workshop on April 25th
In this three-hour workshop we will learn about Rhiannon’s story in The First Branch of the Mabinogi, with special emphasis on how that relates to the 1st of May. We will look at other lore about Rhiannon as time allows, and at how these things might be brought together in ritual, devotion, altar creation, meditation, or other activities at this time of year.
This class will be inclusive and non-judgemental of your path. We will discuss how you might honour Rhiannon, but it isn’t up to me to tell you how you should honour Her. I believe that I can best serve Rhiannon by offering solid information about Her story, and my experiences with Her. It’s up to you what you do with that information.
Cost of the class is $15 US.
