The ancient Celtic world lived in better connection with the otherworld because it practiced sophisticated methods of understanding and speaking with the otherworld, enabling both sides of the worlds to be woven together.
Its filid (vision poets) trained in the houses of darkness in order to attend to the other side of reality, without the stimulus of sight.
Their curriculum covered twelve years in total, three of which were focussed upon poetic means of divination. Alongside them there were the unprofessional but just as skilled, faithí or diviners, who read from the book of nature.
In every esoteric training today, our first steps include learning how each of us perceives, noting the signs and changes, becoming experienced in perceiving the otherworld and its messengers. In this talk we will discuss these ways and signs so that we can stop the seam between our world and other from unravelling.
