She Chanted Spells of Power: A Rite of Poetry with the Morrígan
September 19, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 8:00 pm
An intimate workshop and ritual in a private venue in Newcastle-upon-Tyne:
She speaks prophecies, She incites, She chants spells of sorcery. The Morrígan is known by many as a war Goddess, but She is also a poet, and Her poetry brings to life ancient Celtic traditions in which poetry was performed for ritual trance, oracular prophecy, and magical incantation. In this rite, we will let the rhythm and word-weaving of the Great Queen’s poetry lead us into the state of mantic trance, to experience a glimpse of the mystery and beauty of the Irish poetic and oracular tradition.There will be a workshop and ritual, followed by a shared meal with an opportunity to talk and to share experiences.
