Bríd, Lugh, Dána, Macha, the Daghda… these are just a few names from the Tuatha Dé Danann, The People of Dana, the primary family of goddesses and gods of the Celtic Otherworld. The Celts knew these names, acknowledged these beings as integral and integrated members of clan, tribe and society.
For our Celtic ancestors lived in a world embodied and thrumming with life force. From tree and water spirits, to the ancestors, to the goddesses and gods of the Otherworld, life danced in all three realms of Land, Sea and Sky. Life force flowed seamlessly between the physical and Otherworldly aspects of life, and the Celts walked in personal relationship with the goddesses and gods of their world.
Come, step into the world of the Celts and hear the names of the Tuatha Dé Danann, among others, spoken again. Join Jennifer L. Jacoby for a one-hour introduction to the goddesses and gods of the Celtic world.
