Goddess Alive Radio and MotherHouse of the Goddess is delighted to welcome back, Priestess, Shamaness, and Author, Amantha Murphy! Amantha was a guest with us in the first year of MotherHouse and it is so exciting to have her join us to celebrate her wonderful new book, Way of the Seabhean with co-writer Orla O’Conneell!
The book has just been published by Womancraft Publishing in February 2021:
“The seabhean (pronounced sha-van) is the Irish female shaman, healer and seer, the woman who walks between the worlds.
What if we didn’t have to look to other traditions for our spiritual practice?
What if we could connect to the roots of our own ancestors’ rituals?”
Way of the Seabhean brings Amantha’s Goddess storytelling, rich experiences, and powerful Shamanic practices to a greater audience. Her Wheel of the Year introduces us to some lesser-known Goddesses, as well as more familiar; Medb, Brigid, Áine , the Cailleach, Tailtiú, Boann, Macha, and Tlachtga.
Amantha shares some of her personal story and how she came to the Goddess through the land itself in Ireland as a child with the guidance of her Grandmother. We discuss holy sites of Ireland, the importance of personal spiritual experience, and all the Goddesses included on her Wheel of the Year!
Check back with us for an in-depth review of Amantha’s book!
