This series builds on the two earlier Nine Waves Immersions and pick up the theme of Exile, Migration and the Immigrant. There is such a prevalence of these stories in the Irish tradition we might suggest the Irish are ‘the people from somewhere else’.
There is a mix in the stories of involuntary exile, eg. Children of Lir, but there are also stories where the exile is entirely chosen. This is in both the Irish Myth and the Christian tradition. This meeting of worlds is a constant theme throughout.
We will complement these myth tellings with input from writers and thinkers and artists whose work is complementary. With Bard Mythologies, our mythic method facilitates the participants sharing their meanings and insights generated by the stories, both personal and collectively.
