Join us for our second lecture in our On The Druids series at the Irish Cultural Center as we explore The Seat of the Soul: Celtic Beliefs Regarding the Head.

Why was the head so important to the Celtic-speaking Tribes? What were their beliefs regarding the afterlife?
What did the Tribes believe happens to the soul after it has left its shell?
Join us as we delve into the ancestor mound and explore the beliefs surrounding the passing on of loved ones amongst the Tribes. Presented by Lytawn Crow.

$15 (members) / $18 (non-members) per person per class. Seating is limited. Please call the Irish Cultural Center at 602-864-2357 or email academy@azirish.org for information. Walk-ins welcome.

Come join us after our monthly lecture at the Irish Cultural Center as we learn how to carve Turnip heads for Samhain! These precursors of our modern day jack’o’lanterns were carved in Ireland and Scotland before the discovery of pumpkins in the New World.

Items needed to participate:
One or two turnips, the bigger the better; a pairing knife; a spoon; a pencil; and either an exato knife or a small skewer.

Littles will need to have parents assisting with the cutting.
Free event but donations gladly accepted.
