Sharlyn Hidalgo introduces her new book: Celtic Tree Ogham: Rituals and Teaching of the Aicme Ailim Vowels and the Forfeda.
Sharlyn has written extensively in her previous two books about the first fifteen trees of the 25-ogham alphabet known as the Celtic tree calendar.
This new book explores the last ten ogham. She will introduce you to the five vowel trees of the Feda and the last five wisdom trees of the Forfeda. Each tree has a valuable teaching which can add to your own wisdom and help you connect to nature and encourage you in your role as a steward and protector of our planet.
Sharlyn will focus on the teaching of the Yew to demonstrate how she shares the tree teachings, ceremonies, and stories.
