Celtic Mysticism and Spirituality – Indigenous Bloodline of Ancient Britain

We begin by acknowledging the Arakwal People of the Bunjalung Nation and their right to sovereignty and we thank them for allowing us a presence in their country.
Ly is joined by local musician, and long-time colleague in the ways of magic, Matt Connolly. Matt brings the music of the people, part of the colours of Celt.
Ly will begin by explaining what it is like to be lost. To not have a family history. To study that of others and to come to settle on one particular branch of the universal tree of life only to discover, decades later, that it is the tap root of her own personal family tree (de Angeles was sold by the Catholic Church for £300 just after her birth and adopted by strangers).
Images of ancient sites will orient you with the power and majesty of your ancestors.
We discuss crop circles being the earth’s voice to which our ancestors listened and built the henges, sídhe mounds and long barrows. Species non-differentiation and walking softly with life.
Mysticism and not religion. Non-anthropomorphic understanding of spirit of place (genus loci) and being one’s ancestors.
You will voyage Imramma (a guided visualization). Not peaceful, but honest. De Angeles will pull you into the heart of Priteni, allow you to meet, invite you to feel the violation, the battles, know from whom you are descended. Who you are still.
You will be returned to the circle of the present day by the pounding of hooves across the moors of time, by the power of the bodhràn. You will be provided with the instruments to decorate yourselves with whatever blue ink designs represent the experience for you. This is up to each person and is not a requirement. The ink is not permanent. If this is not your culture we invite you to experience the understanding.
The knowledge of the protection of stone guardians will be explained, a demonstration given so you can create one or more, inviting spirits of the land to reside with you at your home.
The lore of asking agreement of species and life, of freely given, the cycles and seasons of the blue people of the necessity of clan and family, not always of blood.
Discuss genealogy and DNA testing if we have time.
