Living By Ancient Ways
The Irish landscape is speckled with remnants of an age gone-by, where the stars in the skies were bards, the wind sang, the land comforted and the seas brought tribes and lands together.
The divine creator was a goddess of two parts, representing the two halves of the year. The creation of the earth, the ways of surviving the winter and the magic of astronomical events were preserved in mythological tales and folklore.
The plants brought both healing and deep teachings, the trees were revered, as were the hills. Community was an essential part of survival and the relationship between humans and the natural world was brought into politics, law and education.
A way of oneness, deep human experience and regulation within the natural landscape. A way that calls many of us today, to realign with more natural and authentic way of being.
The Healing Arts Journey
This is NOT a journey of pointing out every last mistake we have made and others have made against us.
NOR is it a journey of love and light, ignoring half of who we are.
We don't "fix" ourselves, we release what is not authentically aligned within us.
The journey of healing is not one that perfects us,
it is one that embraces our divine imperfection and leads us home.
CREATING YOUR TOOLS AND SKILL STRENGTHENING.
Just as each one of us is born unique, our life path is carefully curated through experiences, challenges, success, failure and lessons learned.
Your Healing Arts journey allows you to develop your own unique combination of skills and strengths, aligned with your own sense of purpose. These are presented to you as you move through your own personal healing journey.
We journey through three stages:
- Self-Discovery and Healing
- Navigating And Observing
- Curating Your Own Craft Within The Healing Arts
To Initiate means to begin. This is the starting point of the path of the Healing Arts apprentice.
Initiation: i mBroinn an Máthardhia (In the womb of the mother goddess)
The initial journey through the natural cycles, focused on being present, meeting the ancient ways for the first time.
Course: Croí an Domahin (Level One)
Unravelling the self through releasing what is not authentic and aligned with both the essence of your being and your path with the natural world.
Course: Croí an Domhain, Croí na Mara (Level One and Two)
Journeying and reflection can help you to see all aspects of yourself from a place of compassion and learning.
Course: Croí na Mara (Level Two)
Strengthen your inner compass through a deeper knowing of self. The relationship you build with yourself and the elements and energies around you help you to navigate your life path with greater ease and alignment.
Course: Croí na Mara, Slí an Bean Feasa (Level Two and Bean Feasa Initiate Level)
The path of the Bean Feasa requires a commitment to both your own life journey and to the healing arts. Making your vow and stepping into the role of the Bean Feasa brings your apprenticeship journey to a close.

MENTORING AND THERAPY
The Healing Arts journey is primarily experienced through community here at Teampall Croí na Mara, facilitated by our community membership, courses and workshops.
There are time within our journey where we need additional support and guidance, and to facilitate that I offer one-to-one mentoring to students and one-to-one healing and therapy sessions to everyone.
Mentorship is an optional addition to your healing arts training.
Croí na Mara sessions can be booked individually through this website or by getting in touch.
"Lisa's ability to hold a safe space with such kindness and compassion is profound. I was truly moved by my experience and the journey I experienced during this session was one of initiation and rebirth. Lisa's guidance during the session is what I needed to come home, a place within that I had been searching for a long time. Lisa's healing ability to connect with my ancestors was deeply humbling and healing. I am truly grateful and I look forward to returning."
"I'm really grateful for the space, the presence, the teachings and inspiring journeys. I got a lot from it all and felt grounded in my being as the seasons changed and unfolded following our sessions. There is much more light and contentment in my days now. My calling to work with youth outdoors has been happening with ease. You inspired confidence in me to follow that."
