||I was born
in Dublin in 1955. I graduated from U.C.D with a B.A. in 1973, then spent
a year in Bristol, England as a social worker in a Jamaican community
for one year, before returning to Dublin and completing an M.A. The M.A.
was in Metaphysics, Ethics, and the Psychology of Soul. Shortly after
that I began study in the Raja Yoga system, being introduced to the concepts
of Reincarnation and the deep beauty of Eastern Thought. This was the
beginning of the use of meditation as a daily practice, which has been
the back bone of my journey through the years. In my early twenties I
cycled through Europe, visiting many countries and awakening to the diversity
of cultures and languages. Arriving in Greece I felt a deep, deep sense
of home coming and decided to live on the island of Samos for two years.
During this time past life recall began to open up and I had remembrances
of being part of the Pythagorean Mystery Schools.
brought me to the alpine town of Garmisch Partenkirchen, where I worked
with young American children at the infant and pre-school ages. This period
was also the time of meeting my American husband, Daniel. Together we
began an intensive course in Esoteric Metaphysics. This study was to continue
for twenty years and eventually lead us to Colorado. However, in 1988
we returned to Galway, Ireland where our son was born and during that
time Daniel bloomed as a artist and sold many of his paintings through
the Tom Kenny gallery in Galway town. It was also in Galway that I qualified
as a Reflexologist, with what was then the Irish Institute of Health and
Healing and continues as The Galway Institute of Wellbeing.
brought us to Colorado to pursue our study of metaphysics. During this
time I became a teacher and a minister. It was in 1999 that the organized
study came to an end and the real awakening to the multi-dimensional aspects
of life began to open out. Surrounded by the incredible beauty and peace
of the Rocky Mountains I spent many, many hours in meditation with nature
and the inner realms of the natural kingdoms began to open out to me.
Out of these meditations the work of Celtic Fire and Faerie was birthed.
years other qualifications fell into the bag, including becoming an MBTI
Consultant for the Jungian personality types and a course with Nelson
Bach on the Bach Flower remedies. All of this study was preparatory for
the work which has blossomed as Celtic Fire and Faerie which is now well
established, with on-going workshops and private consultations. In 2005 Celtic Fire and Faerie conducted its first sacred journey to Ireland.
This trip has brought the work to a whole new level and working with the Land of Ireland will be a
continuing focus. Please visit the other sections of the website for more information.
