Youtube video 23 – Spirit of Place

Kitty has a bee in her bonnet!

The time has come to clear the air and take a look at one of the foundations of believing and understanding Faerie Folklore: Spirit of Place.

*

Traditional Irish and Celtic Folklore doesn’t bark or harangue us.
It seeps, quietly, into the corners of our mind and memories.
It speaks to each of us without prejudice.

In this episode, Kitty ponders the experience of being an Irish, or Celtic, descendant and asks:
Is it wrong, or offensive, for someone outside of Ireland to discuss Irish Folklore?

Why do millions of Americans, Canadians and Australians feel such a powerful connection to the homeland of their Ancestors.

What is Spirit of Place anyway, and what’s it got to do with Ancestral Memory?

*

As always, Kitty explains why it’s okay to feel passionately about the homeland of your Ancestors and encourages everyone to relax and keep an open mind.
