Walk the Ogham Pathways with the Druid Forest School
Join my Worldwide Distance Learning Course in The Ogham: http://www.druidforestschool.com/ogham.html
You are supported to find your own true path in these courses.
They are not imposed.
This is totally personal sacred exploration on your part - with all the support you need from me.
The Ogham is a most powerful and beautiful tool for personal growth and spiritual understanding. I have learned so much about states of consciousness and life values from the Ogham. It has been so very beautiful to connect with the trees in their wild and natural settings. In fact, each letter of the Celtic Ogham alphabet can also be used for healing and empowerment.
The Ogham also introduces you to a genuine and powerful cosmology of the Celtic Otherworlds that interpenetrate this realm: Middle Earth. Your mind explores and encompasses its vast range of consciousness-states.
In its essence, the Ogham is the alphabet of ancient Druid Ireland. There is evidence it may have grown out of ancient tally systems and secret ancient druid hand-signalling. Its deep layers of meaning have been amplified by a number of ancient correspondences systems and frameworks.
The Ogham is mystical and profound. It is beautiful and tantalising. The Ogham is very ancient. Its date of origin is unknown as nothing of the Druid wisdom system was written down. However, the earliest inscriptions that have survived are nearly two thousand year old, and there is good evidence for the ogham possibly being several hundred years older than that, and undeniably Irish in its source and origin.
Central to our understanding is that each Ogham alphabet letter or ‘Few’ represents the soul and energy of a tree. But each Few is also a pathway that run across or between the Celtic Otherworlds which are different, sometimes overlapping states of consciousness which are inhabited by their own beings, for example these realms include the famous Tir na N’Og, the land of eternal Youth, or Magh Mell: the state of Abundance, The Plane of Delight.
How does the Ogham Course work?
For each Ogham letter you receive an audio recording download with information about the letter and the relevant tree, any relevant spiritual weapon, pathway and beings, plus a second audiofile which is a guided meditation with opportunity for trance drumming and chanting and divination.
You can either use our drumming journey, or you can branch out from this and proceed to use your own drumming.
You then correspond with myself as guide, friend and counsellor as your personal spiritual and life-journey progresses, helped through the trees and mystical Celtic Otherworlds.
This correspondence is completely personal and individual to you. The Course is Certificated.
Importantly, each journey always starts (and ends) at your Divine Centre here on Middle Earth, which you learn to visualise.
You also receive maps showing the place of each Ogham pathway in the Celtic Cosmology: the pathway that each letter represents through the Celtic Otherworlds.
Thus, the course is not at all taught with any time-frame in mind. The goal is achieving excellence of the experience, excellence of connection, excellence of utterance, rather than any time table.
People are not advised to study more that an Ogham letter per week, though, as it definitely takes time for the energy to assimilate with anyone – even in the most foundation way.
The first step is to establish your Divine Centre, your special place of being, where each journey will begin and end, so you start off with a sound file being sent to you to help you do this.
The order of study is that determined by pathways stretching out across the three worlds of ancient Irish cosmology.
In other words, you start with the Ogham tree letters for the four pathways that radiate out from your Divine Centre in the centre of this world, which was called Bith or ‘Middle Earth’.
But progressively you extend further and further outwards from your Divine Centre to the tree letters for the pathways leading to the realms of the Upper World (Magh Mor) and also the realms of the Lower World (Tir Andomain), and ultimately to the letters for journeying across the Upper World and the Lower World.
