This is one of the follow up journeys as part of my Druid Forest School: Course 3. Worldwide Course: Visionary Contact with the Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Irish. 

As I walked away from the rocky promontory which juts out into the North Atlantic Ocean on the West Coast of Ireland near where I live in the lovely ancient town of Foxford in County Mayo, I felt I had a clear picture of the God, Manannan

Having a clear picture is always very important in ‘deity tantra’ as I learned twenty years ago when I worked with Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu deities during my social anthropology Field Study, the Ethnography I completed mainly in Glastonbury in England studying ‘spiritual forms new to the modern west’. If you wish to learn more about me and my work take a look at this website

I really loved seeing a rock pool on the way to the rocky promontory. It was in a rock cleft and it was filled with a jungle of straight upward growing very green seaweed, rather like a vibrant secret submarine forest world. Very striking. A world all of its own.

The promontory was beyond Ennis Crone, just over the northern boundary of County Mayo, on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean mouth of the River Moy which flows through the town of Foxford where I live.

The great sweep of the blue-grey horizon where the sea met the sky on the rim of the world was vast. I called the God and saw him in the form of a man on the shifting waves, merging from the depths of the water to the surface world. The water boiled around the holes pitting the ancient rocks of the wild and solitary shore.

Manannan 3It was vivid how the ocean is also a line of defence – and Manannan has a sword called Fragarach, The Answerer – from the wound of which no man ever recovered. As the vision progressed I learned more and more about Manannan and his message in my life now.

I was creating this meditation journey as part of my introductory course on the ancient Irish Gods where you can also learn about such inspiring, healing empowering beings as The Dagda, The Morrigan, Ogma and Llugh.

I went from the place with a sense of my own sovereignty, warrior nature and of vastness and ever-changing nature.
In earlier journeys we had learned about the many other powerful attributes of this ancient great God. You can enrol on the wonderful courses of my Druid Forest School, including The Ogham.

I look forward to hearing from you and to working with you,
