Have you ever wondered what, exactly, a Druid is? Join me as I chat with the fascinating depth of character that is Eimear Burke. Today she shares with us her origin story and her vast knowledge on the ways that Druids live in tune with nature. What a beautiful way to live in touch with the earth and her blessings. Eimear’s deep cultural knowledge around the sacred wells of Ireland as well as the rituals honoring the passing of the seasons is so fascinating that I could have spoken with her for hours. Journey with me today as I spend an incredible hour with this practicing Druid and wise woman. She teaches us how to honor the cycles of nature, to sing to trees and regales us with a Gaelic blessing.
Eimear is a druid and co-founder with her late husband, Howard Campbell, of the Kilkenny College of Druidry. She is a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids (OBOD) and the Druid Clan of Dana and a priestess in the Fellowship of Isis. She is a Counseling Psychologist, Shamanic therapist, Reiki & Seichem Master and herbalist. Eimear has worked with a number of traditional healers in Tanzania, exchanging ideas and identifying similarities to the Druid path. Eimear is a practiced story-teller. She featured TV documentaries: “There’s Something About Patrick”. “Lesser Spotted Journeys”.
