New Article – “Children and Family in Gaelic Polytheism”

February 1, 2014

La Fhèill Brìghde sona dhuibh!

Gaol Naofa is proud to present our latest article for the website, this time focusing on Children and Family in Gaelic Polytheism.

Although the main purpose of the article is to give parents ideas on how to include children in a family-based Gaelic Polytheist practice, we hope it will also prove useful for individuals – whether youth or adults – who are new to GP, as well as to other sorts of multigenerational spiritual communities.

The basics of belief and practice are broken down into their various elements, and practical ideas and examples of simple prayers are given that a child or beginner should be able to get to grips with easily enough.

Website readers may notice that the pdf files of most of our articles are now embedded in the site, as well as available on Scribd. Please let us know if you come across any broken links or dropped content that may have happened during these formatting changes.

We have also made some slight changes in organisational structure, with Annie Loughlin now serving as Uachtarán (President), organising and running Gaol Naofa from Scotland. After five years at the helm, Treasa Ní Chonchobhair is now filling the position of Leas-Uachtarán (Vice President). We would like to extend our deep gratitude to Treasa for her years of service and continued commitment to Gaol Naofa, as well as to Annie for taking her turn at the helm. For more details please refer to our page on Council and Structure.
