Another look at Irish Magic and Witchcraft: The Gods, the Myths, with Murtagh
Sat May[masked]pm $23; $3 discount for cash.
Mythology informs magic in the system of Irish Draiochta (Enchantment/Magick) and Witchcraft. Building on the introductory classes, we again look at the Gods of Ancient Ireland (such as An Daghda, An Morrigan, Lugh, Brigid), The Tuatha De Danann, (as well as the Fir Bolg, Fomor and Milesians) and their mythology. This will take a different approach from last class, (and good for new students). We will go through the gods in a mythic rather than archetypal sense. We discuss how we work with and contact them; what are their symbols, and how do they relate to the cosmology and the land.
Murtagh anDoile is a Druid and Elder of the Tuatha de Danann (NECTW) , an Irish Mystery Tradition. He is the founder of TDD: The Ninth Wave, and Nemed na Morrigna. Tagh has been involved in the Pagan/Occult movement since 1968. He is an independent scholar and researcher, with a degree in Anthropology. He’s worked as an archaeologist for Brown University. He’s been published in several Pagan magazines and newsletters and was interviewed in “Keepers of the Flame: Interviews with Elders of Traditional Witchcraft in America.” Though talks given in the early 80s at Pagan festivals around the country, he inadvertently became one of the progenitors of the Celtic Reconstructionist Movement. He has been working with an Irish form of magic and witchcraft, and the spirits and gods of Ireland since 1977.
