The art of traditional house-clearing in Celtic countries

Facilitator: Caít Branigan & Caitlín Matthews

The ancient tradition of house-clearing in Ireland and Britain holds a strong place in the spiritual practices of both lands. We will be using shamanic journey, meditation, and practical exercises to explore the core elements of house-clearing.  By focusing on energy lines, faery paths and underground streams, we will clear negative and blocked energies guided by our  spirits, as well as hauntings and the blessing of the home.

The Course Content

This course provides a grounded training in the ancient tradition of house- and land-clearing in Ireland and Britain, which still holds a strong place in the spiritual practices of both lands.

On this course, we will be using shamanic journey, meditation, and practical exercises to explore the core elements of house-clearing.  By focusing on energy lines, faery paths and underground streams, we will clear negative and blocked energies. Sharpening our discernment of land energies, and clearly guided by our spirits, we will gain understanding about how to deal with residues, hauntings and other visitations, as well as how to tackle the more mundane changes that telephone masts and deep excavations bring to our area.

The work will follow compassionate lines, where what is cleansed is also rebuilt and restructured, to be filled with light. It is never a matter of banishment or exorcism, but a grounded and gentle method which is based on our own deep spiritual connections and done with love. These ways are essential for the reconsecration of the land and for the blessing of the home.  Our course will include a Ceremony of Earth Healing, enabling us to listen and to be thankful for the privilege of this work. Led by a traditional Bean Feasa and an experienced shamanic practitioner, you will be carefully guided to deeper discernment and practical knowledge that will always be of use.
