HIGHLIGHTS OF AN UISNEACH TOUR

Map-01-01

 

The Royal Palace

This conjoined (figure of eight) ring fort was the subject of a major archaeological excavation by R.A.S. McAllister in the 1920’s. It revealed the remains of several houses, two souterrains and various other features associated with domestic occupation spanning several centuries.

 

Lough Lugh

Named after the Sun God Lugh and deemed to be the place where he met his mortal end at the hands of Mac Cuill, Mac Cécht and Mac Gréine. The nearby bronze-age prominent mound, Carn Lugdach, is said to have been raised in his honour.

 

St.Patricks Bed (The Summit)

From this probable megalithic tomb the view encompasses almost all of Ireland with up to twenty counties being visible on a clear day. St Patrick is said to have established a presence here during the fifth century.

 

The Catstone

The most famous feature on Uisneach is undoubtedly Ail na Mireann (the stone of divisions), known as The Catstone. It is also known as Umbilicus Hinerniae, Axis Mundi and the navel of Ireland. This huge glacial erratic symbolises Ireland, united in its divisions and it marks the centre of Ireland where the provinces came together. It is underneath this stone that Éiru, after whom the country is named, was laid to rest.

SACRED FIRE WISDOM TALK:
A 60-90 minute talk focused on Indigenous wisdom, traditions and ceremonies of the Americas, sacred altars, ancestral lineage, toxic thoughts and energies, and healing practices of gratitude & forgiveness. We will discuss the origins of dis-ease in our physical, mental/emotional & spiritual bodies and the power of intention & prayer as you receive simple healing exercises that you can do on your own. You will be reminded that you are your greatest healer, doctor and medicine.

TOBACCO MASTER PLANT TEACHER (Talk & ceremony)
An additional short talk focused on sacred master plant medicines, and specifically the plant of the tobacco Nicotiana Rustica (Mapacho) is also a part of our night together. Native to the Americas, along with its sister plant medicines of the ayahuasca, peyote and San Pedro, tobacco has been cultivated there for nearly 8,000 years and may the oldest cultivated plant in the New World.

Tobacco is one of the most powerful sacred plant medicines in existence, which is also why it is one of the most abused plant medicines on the planet. . Greek philosopher Paracelsus said “ the dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy” – this is why the tobacco plant should only be used with healing intention, and with a deep prayer and respect for this sacred plant spirit.

This talk will be followed by a sacred liquid tobacco ceremony, where participants are given the opportunity to work directly with the tobacco medicine in a sacred manner for your healing.
This ceremony will offer you the opportunity to cleanse, remove and release any blockages, old unhealthy patterns, memories and traumas, as well as any discordant and destructive energies which may be preventing you from living in your highest authentic being.
The tobacco plant offers clarity, balance and grounding as it helps to re-align your body, mind and spirit, and assists in clearing, opening up and strengthen your direct connection to yourself and your higher purpose in this lifetime.

This ceremony is offered to complement the talk, but you can decide whether or not to participate once you have heard the talk and the ceremony instructions.
This is a relatively short ceremony, and you will be fine to drive and travel shortly afterwards - the length can range from 15 minutes to one hour depending on how many people will be participating. For those who are non-smokers, it will be ingested through the nasal cavity in liquid form, and for those who have quit smoking as well as everyone else, I remind you that this is your opportunity to work with it in a sacred manner. You will not become addicted to tobacco with only one ceremony.

There are many physical benefits to tobacco, all of which will be discussed in the talk, including the clearing of mucous in the sinus passages, but it is not recommended for those with a current serious sinus infection. Other medical contraindications are pregnancy, and/or a serious allergy to tobacco or any other plants in the nightshade family: eggplant, tomatoes, peppers etc… This does not necessarily mean you cannot participate but we suggest you talk to Erika beforehand. For those who prefer not to work with the tobacco Agua Florida, a Peruvian flower water will be offered.
