Teachings & Ritual Details:
In this intensive, we will undertake a journey together into the great mysteries of the Four Treasures of the Tuatha, the ancient Gods of Ireland: the Stone of Fal, the Spear of Lugh, the Sword of Nuada, and the Cauldron of the Dagda. Under the tutelage of the Morrigan and the great teachers of the Tuatha, we will unfold the Celtic heroic virtues through ritual, study, meditation and active physical practice.

With the Stone, we engage the mysteries of Sovereignty embodied by Eriu, the Goddess who is the land of Ireland. We learn to hold power as a pillar of strength, to carry sovereignty with balance and inner grace.

We approach warriorship through the Spear, learning the wisdom tales of Lugh and the heroes of the Spear. We learn to wield the spear as a physical weapon, and as a light of the soul, sharpening and honing our skill.

With the Sword, under the guardianship of the great king Nuada, we learn to hone the soul's sword, to wield the sword with strength and grace, and the principles of leadership, service, protection, and strategy.

Through the Cauldron of the Dagda, we learn the values of kinship, the ancient laws of hospitality, and we touch the deep well of shared tribal connection that never runs dry.

Once we have undertaken the teachings of these mysteries, we can begin to embody the heroic virtue that is our birthright. In the culmination of our journey, we will stand with the Morrigan, our mighty tutelary Goddess, and ask Her to ignite within us the radiant Hero's Light, and to teach us how to carry this power in service to what we love.

Coru Cathubodua welcomes Dr. Brendan Myers as a guest lecturer. Dr. Myers holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the National University of Ireland, and teaches college philosophy and humanities in Gatineau, Quebec. He is well known in spiritual communities for his contributions to modern Druidry and has published works focusing on virtues and ethics, critical thinking, Pagan philosophy and history, Druidry, and game theory, as well as several works of fiction. To his knowledge, Brendan is the only openly-pagan philosophy professor in the world. He can be reached via the web at, or follow him on Twitter, @Fellwater.
