Celtic Shamanism - The Native Irish Tradition
Fáilte – Welcome to Slí An Chroí - “the pathway of the heart”,
our website for indigenous shamanic practitioner training, professional shamanic healing training, personal shamanic healing, a directory of certified shamanic healers in Ireland, (energy medicine and shamanic counselling) as well as a deep resource for the Irish tradition of Spiritual wisdom and mysticism through Nature, which is ancient and contemporary, pre-Celtic and Celtic.
This sacred way of living and healing is the dedication of our professional and personal lives, we bid you a warm welcome and an informative visit to our site. From offering an introduction to our tradition through to providing a centre for community, we see the retrieval of a heart-centred consciousness as intrinsic to holistic health and vital in all our lives at this particular time in our world.
We gather international groups of shamanic practitioners in Ireland and we venture into fieldwork and expeditions abroad with student groups to expand our development, share traditions, dream powerful ceremonies for Mother Earth and celebrate a worldwide community of shamanic practitioners.

A Call To Align Ourselves With
Balance & Harmony

Ancestors. It is the final verse of energies that began at Samhain
2016. The green leaves are giving themselves up to browns, bronzes,
reds and russets and the branches holding them will not be doing
so for long. Any swallows you still might see are lagging behind
the departure of most of their kin. For many of us, the shortening
evenings bring an early shiver not so much from a cooler temperature,
but more from an anticipation of the darker, colder days of Winter.
Yet the Festival and Rites of Autumn Equinox call us away from
such an energy sapping outlook to embrace this time, “the
pause between Autumn and Winter”. So significant is the
second Equinox of the year that it is our loss to not enter and
You can read our full 8 week schedule of shamanic events on our Centre page. In this Autumn Equinox of 2017, there are many regular events and some new, such as us providing a shamanic presence to major festivals. Enjoy the schedule.
Throughout the year we continue to facilitate seasonal celebrations, outreach programmes into various environments such as corporate workplaces, schools and universities, community centres, hospitals, hospice and addiction recovery centres.
In Slí An Chroí, we hold integrity, safety and respect as core values in all shamanic practice and healing. When our heart begins to open, heal and find courage to adventure, only then do we step into an experience of humanity that shifts the horizons that once limited us.
Whether through individual healing, training and/or coming into community with us, may you find the connection to your heart and to the greater world that you yearn for.
May Slí An Chroí be a resource for you to step forward into your truth, find sacredness and realise your unique potential.
