The Open Graves, Open Minds Project began by unearthing depictions of the vampire and the undead in literature, art, and other media, then embraced werewolves (and representations of wolves and wild children), fairies, and other supernatural beings and their worlds. The Project extends to all narratives of the fantastic, the folkloric, and the magical, emphasising that sense of Gothic as enchantment rather than simply horror. Through this, OGOM is articulating an ethical Gothic, cultivating moral agency and creating empathy for the marginalised, monstrous or othered, including the disenchanted natural world.

10% DISCOUNT WITH CODE XMAS10 if you book this week!Everything is made up of fragments of energy but some energies can negatively affect our wellbeing. Identify and protect yourself from them. This unique two-session event brings light to a shadowy topic that is often avoided as taboo but nevertheless exists, regardless of whether or not we acknowledge its existence.Regardless of whether or not we are aware of energy within us (the chakras & aura) and in the Universe, we radiate and are affected by energy in all we do. And not all energy is beneficial for our wellbeing. In fact some energies may negatively disrupt our lives, causing pain, grief, chaos and physical as well as mental illness. Protection against negative energies can be traced back thousands of years, from shamans in stone-age times to some of the oldest civilisations the Sumerians and Egyptians, to druids, cunning men and witches in medieval times in present day.This two-week session course (3 hours per week) aims to provide an introduction to the most common types of negative energies that can be encountered daily. You will learn to recognise and clear these negative energies in yourself and in others, but also in places that may affect you such as at work, your home, and in everyday life situations.The course is ideal for all levels and will benefit everyone who attends but is a must for anyone working with the public, medical professionals, and also paranormal investigation teams.Two three-hour sessions on Thursday 15 and 22 December (6 hours)INCLUDES COURSE SUMMARY PDF BOOKLET, ATTENDANCE CERTIFICATE AND HANDOUT WITH READING LIST, LINKS, SUPPLIES.Limited spaces, book today!www.eventbrite.ie/e/negative-energies-online-workshop-2-weeks-tickets-430130671417...

Dreams are the invisible bridge that links our living experience to the Otherworld, one of the many thresholds between realms.About this event[www.eventbrite.com/e/the-art-of-dying-what-happens-when-we-die-tickets-459919871717](www.eventbrite.com/e/the-art-of-dying-what-happens-when-we-die-tickets-459919871717)Life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one. In the depths of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; and like seeds dreaming beneath the snow, your heart dreams of spring. Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.– Kahlil GibranThe truth is no one can give a definite answer as to what lies beyond our human life, regardless of our religious beliefs or what science may have been able to prove so far. Science has confirmed that consciousness can go on when someone dies. And research undertaken shows that patients resuscitated even up to ten minutes or longer after their death experienced some level of consciousness immediately after dying; many of these patients remember and are able to recall what happened, some with great detail and accuracy, while dead and how they returned to their bodies in these near death experiences (NDEs). However, not everything can be explained by religion or science.Join me in this unique talk as a tribute to those no longer here, on all souls day, in remembrance. I'll share some of the beliefs I have come to learn and why they seem to make sense. I'll discuss the role of dreams and their symbolism as well as altered states of awareness, like trance, in bringing us closer to the Otherworld and providing evidence. I'll also share some paranormal experiences I have been gifted with which offer some evidence and hope of survival of the soul and an afterlife. Followed by QA.Unique talk.
