An Intro to British & Irish
Nature Reverence Practices

Ancient cultures of Britain & Ireland continue to be deeply connected to nature. These earth-honouring cosmologies relate to the natural world through poetry and ecstatic vision, with experience of the sacred expressed through eloquence and wit.

 

In these cultures, the natural world is seen through an animist perspective, with the understanding that nature is vibrantly alive with spirits of place, ancestors, and deities - often named the Otherworld. 

 

For millennia within these traditions, the language of divine relationship with nature and the Otherworld has been poetry. Nature has always been deeply honoured for her beauty and wisdom, and these cultures know that nature offers us profound meaning and insight.

 

Come and learn more about the old ways of nature reverence in this class, where we explore the Otherworld and how we can relate to the consciousness of nature.

Many of us feel disconnected from ancestral, earth-honouring traditions. We live in a world that seems to have no roots in ancient wisdom or nature connection. 

But it is possible to learn about earth reverence practices from the perspective of ancient Britain & Ireland. Join me and other like-minded folk as we reclaim and revitalize our embodied connection to animism and culture.

In this class,
we cover:

If you relate to any of these, then this class is for you:

  • Some foundational principles of British & Irish nature-reverence practices and cosmology that teach us how to connect with nature & the Otherworld

  • Why the Otherworld can be understood as the consciousness of nature, and how this has traditionally been understood, expressed, and honoured

  • The importance of poets and poetic inspiration in these cultures

  • Brief overview of British & Irish ritual landscapes across time, and how nature reverence can be seen in human interactions with the land

  • The healing impact of relating to ancestral cultures and homelands, especially from far away

  • Understanding the modern-day Celtic cultures as living identities, people, and places

  • Intuitive practice to deepen our connection to the old ways.

  • Ways that you can continue your learning in a community of like-minded people.

                 

 

 

             

  • You want to learn about the animist traditions of prehistoric/historic Britain & Ireland to deepen your earth-honouring practice.

  • You have ancestry from Britain and/or Ireland, and want to know more than the basic "Celtic Spirituality" that proliferates the field

  • You would like to learn specific techniques for communicating with nature that are rooted in ancient wisdom

  • You are drawn to the mythic, spiritual, and initiatory path, but want guidance from a specific cultural area

  • You are at a beginner level in animist spiritual practice, and want to learn more foundational cosmology and theory

    Robyn Philippa

    Animist Healing Arts Practitioner & Teacher

    Creator of
    Sacred Earth Grove

    Hi, I'm Robyn

    With a passion for nature connection and spiritual philosophy. I have been on a journey of exploring my animistic and ancestral traditions for 25+ years. 

    These studies have taken me through the fields of Restorative Justice, Eco-therapy, Nature Connection, Social Work, Herbalism, and Celtic/Gaelic spiritual traditions.

    My offerings to the world combine circle-keeping, relating to the consciousness of nature, and helping others raised in industrial culture create an earth-based spiritual practice that tends to the mythic language of the soul.

    I practice by spending deep, reflective time in nature, dream-work, ritual, ancestral reverence, adhering to natural cycles/moon phases, and learning about the history of my people and the ecology of the various lands I have lived upon (across the UK and Canada).

    I live everything I teach, and am also a mother to 3 sweet daughters who are always teaching me more about living in balance!
