Week 3 February 15th Conaire Mor The Bird King
This weeks event with a short summary from Sandy on Arnold Toynbee’s theory on the reason for the rise and fall of civilisations and his 6 reasons a civilisation declines. We then moved on to Chaobang’s powerful telling of the rise and then the fall of Conaire Mor. There were rich discussions in the small and large groups especially around the idea of the “geis” and that the more powerful you are the more you are constrained at personal, social, cultural and cosmic level…. At least in the ancient Irish concept of Kingship.
