Our Course tutor is an Irish person with strong experience in our history, heritage, archaeology, mythology, and Irish Spirituality. You could call her Pagan, Witch, Druid, Priestess or Shaman, and you wouldn’t be wrong, though the only title she definitively goes by is Draoí – a user of magic.
In this class, we cover the basics, but from a uniquely Irish perspective. You will learn:
- The Practicality of Magic
- What Magic IS
- How Magic Works
- Irish Curse Magic and Satire
- About the Irish Otherworld
- Irish Protective Magic
You will have access to Journal Exercises, and a Practical Magic Project for Protection.
The class includes 2 hours of Teaching Presentation, then a separate Guided Journey to connect to an ancient source of Irish Magic directly – using Lora’s native Irish Otherworld Journeying method. This Class, and the Guided Journey, are suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in other traditions.
Our Guided Journey will bring you back in time, to a community who are using Magic to protect themselves, and are willing to share the Old Ways and Wisdom with you personally...

Frequently Asked Questions
"I have been dabbling in pagan craft for years, but it was Lora's lectures and online courses that helped me get serious about my spiritual journey. I love her no nonsense approach to the work, and how incredibly knowledgable she is on the topic of irish lore, culture, and history."
