As we approach Samhain, we enter into the darkest quarter of the year, honoured around the Northern Hemisphere as a sacred time when the veils between ordinary reality and the realms of spirit are said to thin and an auspicious time for connecting with the wisdom of our ancestors. In our Western Culture, many of our traditional magic traditions have been broken and the journey towards creating and maintaining a healthy relationship with the spirit world can be complex and somehow jarring when we try to be in the modern world as it currently is. We are hungry for spirit: we go to workshops, connect deeply to something intense and then struggle to take that into our daily lives.
How do we “be” in the world? How can we welcome spirit into our lives? How can we honour our ancestors by living a deep and rich life? How can we bring spirit home?
We invite you to join Declan Hammond and Louise O’Donnell for an evening of connection to spirit through conversation, community and ritual. We invite you to bring a heart that yearns for nourishment through deeper connection to spirit.
The evening will take the format of a one-hour interview, followed by a break, then a Q&A session.

About Declan & Louise
Declan Hammond, co-founder and former director of The Irish School of Homeopathy, is a homeopath, transpersonal therapist and shamanic practitioner. His life and work has been a passionate search for the most effective healing tools for himself and his patients. This journey has taken him all over the globe studying Eastern and Western approaches to healing, tantra yoga and traditional shamanic practices. Declan has developed a unique synthesis of these ancient and modern healing techniques and works with individuals and groups to empower deep personal growth and spiritual development. Declan Hammond offers appointments to individuals and couples who wish to work deeply with health, emotional, sexual and spiritual issues at his practice in Sandycove, Co Dublin.
Louise O’Donnell is an experienced shamanic practitioner and natural clairvoyant and has undergone extensive training and initiations. She had a busy shamanic practice in Harley Street and Kensington in London before being called by spirit to work in the corporate world, to travel, and eventually, to emigrate. Her studies of the chakras come through her training as a Reiki Master, working with Toltec shamanism in Mexico, the Open to Channel programme in Australia, tantric training with Mahasatvaa Ma Ananda Sarita and studies of the shamanism of England and Wales in Glastonbury, of Scandinavia in Sweden and the traditional rituals and music of rural Zimbabwe. Louise facilitates transformational change in a broad range of organisations. She guides individuals and groups in meditation, shamanic work and ceremony in Ireland, the UK and internationally. She has a number of published articles about shamanic work, sacred sites, transformational change and the holiness of the “ordinary”. She is also a chartered, certified accountant.
Each November until May, Declan and Louise offer The Rainbow Bridge – A 7-month journey in community to deepen your practice in your own unique way, and to revitalise your soul. http://declanhammond.com/rainbowbridge/
