Each theme holds the energy of an Irish Goddesses, the archetypal energies of these Divine Feminine deities speak to us from the past resonating with our modern times fusing the ancient with the new. Offering today`s woman the opportunity to awaken the whispers of the past in the form of Rites of Passage, Blessings and Ceremonies.

The Celtic Goddesses of Ireland gifted Karen the modern version of these ancient Rites to awaken dormant seeds within each woman who receives them.
The ability to lead women to enter a safe meditative state and listen deeply to their innate wisdom for specific intentions is a key part of this training.
Rites of Passage
There are three classic stages within each woman’s life – Maiden, Mother and Crone – times of vital shifts in feminine growth, maturity and intuitive perception.
Chants and Cleanses
Each Theme has it’s own Chant -communal songs of the Soul, which are combined with specific energy field Cleanses as vital elements of each month’s material.
The Blessings are sacred anointments gifted by the Moon Mna Facilitators as the receiver acknowledges the blessed attributes of their Irish Celtic Goddess guardian.

How the Course Works
You will receive 13 Moon Mná Lunar Themes, one per month over 13 months. When you first join you will receive the Moon Mná Foundation Theme, around which all the other 12 Themes orbit. On the first of each month you will receive the Moon Mná Lunar Theme relating to the seasonal Celtic Festivals and most importantly the Goddess who is the guardian for that Rite, Blessing or Sacred Ceremony.
The material has been created to embrace all types of learning styles and so we include a mix of teaching methods – video, audio, written, interactive conference calls and the ultimate experiential and reflective practice of hosting your own Moon Mná Circle. The multimedia material will gift you a solid foundation so you will be empowered and equipped to hold strong and safe Moon Mná Circles, with the key unique aspect of passing on the Rites and Blessings.
How the Course works
This first Module is the Course Foundation around which all the other 12 Themes orbit. This has much valuable material which you will return to again and again as you become familiar with the various Rituals and Ceremony. It is designed to give you a strong and solid basis with each month flowing into the really beautiful deep work of the Divine Feminine.
The informational videos are created to be concise so you may view each technique quickly and retain their information easily. They are designed to explain as well as demonstrate the Course material bringing to life each Lunar Theme and its matching techniques.
Throughout the Course I will host regular quarterly ‘live’ online sessions for you to meet together with your international tribe and ‘sit’ in virtual Circle. During these sessions we will discuss the Art of Facilitation modules.
The written materials take you step by step through each theme and are an important guide for the Course. The Foundation Module has a number of important documents that will be the bedrock of hosting your own Moon Mná Circles.You will return to these time and time again throughout the Course.
In this important feature, I am there for you daily on our Facebook postings, monthly on our Reflective Feedback ‘conversations’ and quarterly for the Conference Calls to hold your hand and guide you over the 13 months.
The Chants are an exclusive and important way to set the scene, raise energy and invoke the core essence of each theme. If you are not a natural singer, you can play them on your phone to teach the women. They are easy to learn and bring joy and lightness into your Moon Mna Circles.
You will be invited to join the burgeoning Tribe of Moon Mná graduates and fellow trainees on our private Facebook page for sharing, interaction and teachings. Many firm friendships are formed over the year this way.
Be part of the rising
Most women who begin the Course aim to become certified as Moon Mná Facilitators, although this is optional. The Certification is provided by the Sli an Chroi School of Shamanism who are ratified by the Society of Shamanic Practice and the Complementary Therapists Association. To receive your Certificate at the end of the Course, there are a few requirements; making precious time to commune with Seanmhathair Gealach and the Lunar Theme material, hosting your own Moon Mna Circle (which may be a small training Circle) and completing the short Reflective Feedback. There is no immediate requirement to do this each month. It is advised to go at your own pace and speed and step into the work when you are fully ready. As mentioned some women begin the journey to certification at varying stages.
The Course material is designed so that you can watch and listen for an hour the week before you plan to hold your Circle at your favourite Moon phase. This means that you have plenty of time to gather the items you need for that particular Theme. You may return to the Course material again while in preparation.
Hosting your Circle
To begin you need to gather a small training Circle of at least two women to gift the Rites and lead in the various Theme techniques. You may decide to start a full Circle straight away especially if you are already working with groups i.e. teach Yoga, Meditation etc.
This is a simple form with questions based on the Theme material to complete after you have held your Moon Mná Circle. This is a fantastic way to engage with me as I give feedback and answers your queries each time. Many women really enjoy and appreciate this way of communicating as they progress through the Course.
Begin your Journey
Payment will be in 13 monthly instalments of €90.00 to be paid by the 21st each month, so you can receive the Moon Mná Lunar Theme, on the 1st of every month. Payment is made via credit card with automatic renewal every month from your 1st instalment.
As women and those who identify as women, we ask that you answer 13 very special reflective questions first. We know you will enjoy this insightful and intuitive process. This Course is not for everyone and we will gently guide you as to the timing and suitability.
Today across Mother Earth there are women whose foremothers walked these shores and held deep in their hearts the seeds of the Divine Feminine. Is this the time for you to awaken and nurture this precious gift within?
Honouring Sacred Sites
Seasonally Moon Mná Facilitators join me to offer the Rites and Blessing on Sacred Sites where the Irish Celtic Goddesses are guardians. These are very special Gatherings where Course members, graduates, regular Moon Mná and women new to this work unite in a place of major alignment.
Many women hold a fervent wish to gather in community under the glorious phases of Seanmháthair Gealach, Grandmother Moon to listen, learn, ponder, laugh and share.
