    Tree Divination Using the Ancient Celtic Ogham Alphabet
    The Irish Ogham tree alphabet pre-dates the Latin alphabet.

Ellen Evert Hopman is the author of A DRUID’S HERBAL OF SACRED TREE MEDICINE, TREE MEDICINE TREE MAGIC and other volumes that explore ancient Celtic tree lore and tree herbalism.
    In this workshop you will learn a Druid tree meditation with live trees, the basics of the Ogham letters and the spiritual, medicinal and cultural lore around them, make a small divination deck, and practice using the trees to do readings for yourself and others. The class involves work outside in nature so wear good shoes and be prepared for the weather.  $125 for the day – $25 Non Refundable Deposit required  – class space is limited.  Full day workshop 11am—5pm bag lunch included for those with no dietary restrictions.
