Learn the Ogham
Michael Conneely is a most dedicated, caring and supportive teacher. He is the author of six visionary books, and has an Oxford University MA.
Michael has completed a five-year ethnographic Field Study: a university-based social-anthropological study of spiritual forms new to the modern west, the method of which was to live in the institutions under study in the areas of Hinduism, Buddhism, paganism, shamanism and Utopian Community – mainly based at Glastonbury.
And nowadays, Michael runs a Healing Centre in the west of Ireland with his partner Maggie Pashley, see:
Enroll on Michael’s Worldwide Ogham Course. This is a certificated worldwide distance learning course studying The Ogham: The Celtic Tree Alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids.
The Ogham was a system of visionary connection and understanding to the energy of the trees and the Celtic Otherworlds which interpenetrate this world.
The Ogham alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids was explored through a number of correspondences, but it is its links to the Trees that we focus on in this course, and the sense of the sacredness of trees was central to the ancient Irish.
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.
The Ogham is mystical and profound. It is beautiful and tantalising. The Ogham is very ancient.
Central to our understanding is that each Ogham alphabet letter or ‘Few’ represents the soul and energy of a tree.
But each Few, or Ogham letter, is also a pathway that runs across or between the Celtic Otherworlds which are different, sometimes overlapping states of consciousness which are inhabited by their own beings, and 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.

I look forward to working with you on this beautiful task,
