HONORING MY TEACHERS

There are no words to express the gratitude I feel towards my teachers in both the seen and unseen realms, who have lovingly and generously initiated me into this wisdom. I have had many teachers over the years, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank some of the ones who have had the greatest impact on me.

Dr. Karen Ward, my loving mentor of Moon Mná & Slí An Chroí.
Mary Mglaughin, my wonderfully talented Irish singing teacher, who has also taught me so much about the Irish keen.
Paraic Donoghue, my (very patient) Irish language teacher.
Katie Anu from Tine Croí who introduced me to keening.
Woman Rising & Goddess Rising Mysteries Schools.
The work of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Éstes and Sharon Blackie.
Ancestral Medicine (Dr. Daniel Foor).

I also want to thank Brigid, Danu, An Cailleach, and my Wise & Well ancestors, who are my beloved guides in the unseen realms.

Míle Buíochas.
