RETURN OF THE ANCIENT DEER
A Journey into Celtic Dreaming

In Celtic tradition, the field of dreams is a field of interaction between humans and the more-than-human. Dreaming is traveling, and a way of real magic, which is the art of bringing gifts from another world into this world. Dreaming is also the secret of bardic access to awen, creative spirit. In a precious document from the 12tn century, Gerald of Wales, tells us that the gifts of the awenyddion – those charged with awen - “are usually conferred in dreams, Some seem to have sweet milk or honey poured on their lips; to others a written document is applied to their mouths.” They rise from their dreams singing.

The ancient Celts practiced dream incubation, seeking healing in the sacred night at the sacred spring of Sequana, the “fast-flowing goddess”, and in the temples of Nehellenia, patron of voyagers on the oceans and the astral seas. They knew that dreams give us maps to be followed in this world as well as portals to the Otherworld.

In this high adventure, we’ll use story, symbol and song, shamanic drumming and the deepening energy of the circle to reclaim the ancient Celtic dreamways, practice cultural soul recovery and grow visions of transformation for our time and other times. We’ll follow the trail of the Antlered Goddess and open space for the return of the ancient deer, as in Robert’s dream:

The ancient deer are returning, all over the world. Their spreading antlers are immense. They are like a walking forest. They are even in the cities, though few people are remotely aware that they have come again.  I am awed by the return of ancient and primal powers of the Earth. They are needed now.

We’ll find our way to the Island of Apples, whose secret may be the power of regeneration. We’ll dream with the Merlin who is the lover of woods and deer and poetic speech, and  travels with a magic apple orchard that goes with him everywhere. If you are very lucky, he may offer you an apple that contains a story that will give you the power to shapeshift your life. In Celtic tradition, the true shaman is a poet of consciousness who changes the world by telling a better story about it. Come ready to find your own bigger story, and give voice to the song of your soul.

Caution: There are dragons here.
