Rewilding the Mind: Reconnecting to the Spirit of the Land

Manchán Magan, Sult & Spraoi

An exploration of the rising connection people are feeling with the spirit, the lore, and land of Ireland… (and its resonances with Indigenous cultures around the world).

In this 70-minute talk, Manchán explores the rising connection people are having with the spirit and the lore of the land of Ireland. Beginning with the creation myth and origin story that our ancestors have passed down to us, he examines the mythological and archaeological clues to how our forebears identified with both the physical realm and the magical realms that surround it.

He’ll look at the raising awareness of the centrality of the goddess in all aspects of Irish culture, lore and ritual, and how it can help to steer us towards a deeper connection with nature and landscape.

Ultimately, this talk is a celebration of the extraordinary heritage our ancestors have passed down to us and how it can inspire and empower us, guiding us in how to live, how to feel and how to relate to the wider world. It also explores the wider resonances of Ireland’s heritage with Indigenous cultures and Vedic India.
