A spiritual travel adventure in the land of the Faery faith. We explore stone circles and passage tombs, and hold a Druid ceremony to celebrate our journey together. We enjoy spectacular ocean views as we wind our way around the Ring of Kerry to Dingle, famous for its live music scene.
In this workshop Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm show you how you can work with the sacred animals of Druidry for divination and for personal transformation. You will learn how animals can become your guides and allies, healers and teachers, totems and familiars.
In this extract from the recording, Philip talks about how interacting with animals through your imagination relates to psycho-analytical theories and how such experiences can be both healing and transformative. The music comes from Steve Marshall’s Avebury Soundscapes.

In the folklore of the old Druid source-lands of Britain, Ireland and Brittany there are numerous stories about the magical powers of animals, and in Druidry today, animals are revered as sacred beings that exist both in the physical world and in the Otherworld. They are capable of challenging us and changing us, healing us, and showing us the way forward.
In 1994, Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm, along with artist Will Worthington, created The Druid Animal Oracle, which has been reprinted a number of times and is now available on The Druid Oracles app. In the above image you see cards for the wren and the salmon.
In the workshop, Philip invites you to imagine you’re in a sacred grove where you encounter animals which take you on an inner journey. You choose cards from the deck and learn how animals can become your guides and allies, healers and teachers, totems and familiars. As you hear Philip and Stephanie talking with people in the live session about their cards, you gain insight into how you can work with the sacred animals of Druidry for divination and for personal transformation.
