This workshop will give a brief synopsis of the Celtic alphabet called the Ogham and the multiple examples of alliteration used by the Celts to remember the alphabet. It will also provide a more extensive overview of one of these alliterations, the Tree Ogham. The workshop will work it’s way through the individual trees and include the way they look, their medicinal properties and what they were traditionally used for. We will also compare and contrast the traditional divinatory meaning to the actual properties.
This workshop will be a precursor to a series of workshops at CedarLight Grove on the latest theories and divinatory techniques in the book Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom by Erynn Rowan Laurie. The class participants will be given the opportunity sign up for the extended class at the end of this workshop. We hope to meet at least once a month to discuss our progress and work on learning this divination technique.
