Fianna Wilderness School seeks to guide people into deep alliance with the natural world and with themselves, as individuals who carry unique gifts to offer, and a unique path to follow.
The ancient Celtic warriors, the Fianna, were the heirs to the territories of the Land Tenders of Ireland. In preparation for their inheritance of responsibility towards land and people – they were obliged to roam the wild country and learn from the natural world. They studied the ancestral lore and were mentored by human and non-human teachers alike, often passing between the many worlds on their journeys of Self-Knowledge. This training facilitated their growth into true maturity, and a destiny of service in the defense of Life and Land.
This is the ancient warrior code found in the roots of many cultures, and it speaks to a journey we all undertake: to move through the trials and tribulations of our growth in order to become fully ourselves, fulfilled and acknowledged in the unique offering we can make back to our world, sustaining Life.
Fianna Wilderness School seeks to support this journey of self-discovery for people, young and old, engaging the deeper currents of life to encounter our own guidance, and embrace our constant transformation. We believe that the world acts and evolves through us, and if we align ourselves to older rhythms and subtler voices, we will each find our unique part in guiding our culture, tending our land, and serving the life of humanity and all beings.
