Workshop Description:

Water is sacred; it holds within it the magic of transformation and is needed to create and sustain life. This class will take an in-depth look at how our European ancestors held water as sacred. We will dive deep into the lore and magic of the Celts and their ancestors. We will discuss a variety of different types of water bodies from the Sea and Rivers to Bogs and Lakes. Why did the Celts honor these bodies of water? Why did they find them sacred? How did these beliefs influence the practice of their descendants? We will also discuss the spirits that dwell within the water such as Lake Ladies, Water Fae and Water Gods and Goddess associated with the sacred lands of the Celts.

Following the class, we will dive deep into the realms of Thermal Springs as we discuss Sulis Minerva the Solar Goddess of the Thermal Springs in Bath UK, known for Healing. We will then connect with her sacred waters in a hands-on healing ritual connecting with sacred water, and the Goddess Sulis.
