A Podcast all about native Irish nature-based Spirituality, healing and community! We will be discussing all things to do with traditional Irish and Celtic healing methods, Spirituality and what it means to be a modern Irish Pagan. I will be chatting to some interesting members of the wider Pagan community for their take on indigenous Spirituality, Paganism, traditional healing practices and other related topics! I'm Anna, a native Irish 'Bean Feasa' or 'Woman of Knowledge' aka Tribal Healer or Shamanic Practitioner. www.irishshamanism.com Find us on Facebook groups, pages and Instagram too
Welcome to my next episode in which I try to answer a question I get asked a lot- Is there any proof that our Irish ancestors or the Celts in general practiced Shamanic or Shamanic-like techniques? The short answer is: not reeeeeaalllly, BUT like everything else to do with Irish Spirituality and pre-Christian (and post!) history, it's very complicated and very very layered!!
I hope you enjoy the episode and it maybe opens the door to pondering some of these questions yourself :D

Where I chat to my good friend Paul about his life-long journey into 'Paganism' and how it fits into his present daily life! This was my first interview and I enjoyed it so much 💚 Paul is an active member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD). He is rather fond of trees and long walks on the beach with his husband and their 4 dogs. He drinks a lot of tea and he doesn't know how to work a television. He is terrified of his phone ringing. He has travelled around Ireland a lot and lived in many places- North, South, East and West and is currently found in one of the most beautiful of all places, namely North Cork. However, most importantly- he's also from Cork! Paul is an accredited Celebrant and Pagan Solomniser available for weddings, baby namings and other ceremonies, he also does a lot of creative writing and blogging. Outside of paganism, his other passions in life include Toastmasters and 5Rhythms.
