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, but I’d like to take this space to honor my Irish teachers in particular.

Dr. Karen Ward, my loving mentor of Moon Mná & Slí An Chroí.
Mary Mglaughin, my wonderfully talented Irish singing teacher.
Paraic Donoghue, my (very patient) Irish language teacher.
Katie Anu from Tine Croí who taught me the practice of keening.

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.
