Ceann-Iuíl walk in the shadow places and as warriors fight the ghosts that haunt the destiny of the soul. Ceann-Iuíl live in appreciation of their part in the yearning of remembering.
It is through their flames of passion that they illuminate the path for others. But to be such a bright and fierce fire, Ceann-Iuíl set their souls and hearts aflame; this is their willing sacrifice.
Apprentices will work towards developing the sacred skills and knowledge underpinned by the personal soul awareness discovered in earth & Stars. It will be on this which is founded their Ancestral & Spiritual interaction, service and relationships. This path is such that we become the dreamers for others; that with the flames of our own hearts, we will see in the darkness without fear, but with love.
Initiation is the taking of the Blue Robe, an immersion into the eternal river Avon Gorm, the river of sapphire stars.
St Francis said, “That once having spoken to God, it is our duty to return from the sacred mountain and tell others what he said.”
Initiation is more than just a change, rather it is a gathering of nourishment for others.
