Through the Unremembered Gate contains twelve journeys of initiation. What is initiation? Initiation is beginning. It is the first step into the rest of your life.
Faery Shamanism is an initiatory path – a path of discovery. When we walk through the glimmering forests and shining meadows of Faerie we do not follow any road map. You are engaged in your own journey of exploration. As we journey into the Shining Realms we meet the Sidhe, the High and Lordly Ones, the Fair Folk who dwell in those bright lands. We meet beasts and birds and other creatures who inhabit these realms. We meet the Green Folk who inspirit tree and herb and seed. With some of these we may establish connections, alliances, friendships. When we win the friendship of the Fae they are often willing to teach us the things we need to know to help us accomplish the great work of the shaman. The great work of the shaman is to make and mend, to help and heal.
We acquire the skills, tools, knowledge, and wisdom we need through initiation.
These initiations take place in the Shining Country or Inworlds, which some call the Faery Realm. Your initiators are the Shining Folk who dwell there.
In Through the Unremembered Gate you will follow the horse, the wren, the bee, the salmon, the boar, and seven other animal guides into the Shining Country. There you will meet the Great Mare Mother, the High Druid, the Lady Smith, the Prince of Tides, the Greenman, and seven more of the Shining Folk who will offer you gifts and initiate you into their mysteries.
You may engage in these journeys of initiation on your own or you may wish to enroll in the Twelve Journeys Program offered by the Society of Celtic Shamans. The path before you is one filled with beauty, wonder, and power. Enjoy the journey.
