In the Táin Bó Cuailnge, for example, she appears as:
- a Young Maiden
- an Eel
- a She-Wolf
- a Heifer
- an Old Woman
- a Crow

In this class, we examine the meaning of the Mórrígan as a shape-shifter, then explore all of the shapes in which this Irish Goddess appears to us through the texts. We will also look at the significance and Irish folklore around the various animal and human shapes of the Mórrígan.

You will get the unique perspective of a native Mórrígan Priestess, a Draoí who has studied Her lore directly, and lived right by the Mórrígan’s ‘fit abode’ for over a decade; guiding people – both physically and spiritually – on a daily basis, to seek the presence of the Great Queen.

The class includes 110 minutes of Teaching Presentation, then a separate Guided Journey (30 minutes) to connect to the Mórrígan 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.

I genuinely enjoyed this class about The Shapes of the Morrigan because it was interesting to see her ability to shape shift being acknowledged. If think that aspect of her should be talked about more often.
