Whether your spiritual path has an Irish flavor to it or not, Lora O’Brien and the Irish Pagan School is one of the best resources you’ll ever find.
Lora has been teaching for over 20 years, and has been a practicing Irish Pagan longer than that. Her mission in life is to help seekers make an authentic connection to Ireland and her pre-Christian spiritual traditions. From Lora’s bio:
Lora O’Brien is a modern Draoí (Druid) – a practitioner and priest of indigenous Irish magic and spirituality, in the simplest terms. She managed one of Ireland’s most important sacred sites – Cruachán/Rathcroghan – for a decade, co-organised Ireland’s national Pagan festival (Féile Draíochta) through its lifespan until 2015, and is a co-founder and legal celebrant with Pagan Life Rites Ireland.
IPS Goodies For Everyone
Lora founded the Irish Pagan School together with her partner Jon O’Sullivan who is a priest of The Dagda. While it’s obvious focus is on Irish spirituality, there are several classes that will be of benefit no matter what pantheon you’re interested in. I highly recommend everyone take Lora’s FREE foundation class in meditation and guided journeys. It’s a practical method based both in psychology and indigenous Irish spiritual principles that will help you learn to meditate even if you’ve never been able to do so before. Lora is a fellow trauma fighter, and her methods are safe and sound. Once you’ve gotten comfortable with level one, there are several other classes to help deepen your practice at very affordable rates.
If you get nothing else from me and my website, learning to meditate safely will do wonders for your healing journey. Lora O’Brien can teach you. I trust her and hold her in the highest regard.
Of course if you ARE at all into an Irish-flavored paganism, IPS is made for you. With nearly 100 different classes (and counting) you can learn about Irish deities, specific holidays and how they are celebrated, and much much more. Most classes are 90 minutes to 2 hours and many come with guided journeys included.
Go take ALL the classes!
