Next Stage Celtic Wheel 

Become the FORCE OF NATURE you were born to be

 

We are in a crucible moment. It's a wild edge of evolution moment. The ancients predicted it. You know it in your belly and in your bones. 

The Patriarchal systems that have been leading the world are in the final throws of death. In the indigenous wisdom of Ireland, women held the power of sovereignty and cyclical wisdom.

Next Stage Celtic Wheel is a year-long journey of remembering and reweaving ancient wisdom with new knowledge, for modern medicine women who want to birth a new, more beautiful world together.

Have you been feeling OVERWHELMED and POWERLESS in this INTENSE time of change?

 

Do you feel torn between two worlds? One foot still in the old world that is collapsing and one tentative foot in the possibility of a new more soulful world

But you often feel helpless to external forces that are threatening areas if your life and the planet.

It feels like everything is being shaken up,  so many moving parts.

You are done with the hustle, 'always on' culture - but you don’t know how to get off that hamster wheel.

You struggle with never having enough time, joy or ease. 

You have a longing to do your bit, to be the change.  

You are drawn to nature, Celtic wisdom, cyclical awareness, and the sacred work of the Feminine.

I know that place intimately, from my own life and from working with women over the last 15 years.

So let me tell you a few things I've learned...


Not only can you handle the intensity of now - you can trust it to reshape you into a shameless, wise and powerful Sovereign woman. 

Being a mess, feeling lost and alone is all part of the path of flourishing. 

What you are feeling is the creative force of evolution. Its your fierce 'forbidden' Feminine nudging, prodding and screaming at you to take up your place as a Force of Nature.

You have what you need inside.

You have instinctual wisdom, innate power and untapped magic just waiting to be reactivated. It’s in your bones, your DNA and in your ancestral lineage.

You hold a unique piece of the puzzle that nobody else has. In the Celtic tradition that is called your Dán, your life's poem, your gifts.  

The ancestors of this land of Ireland honoured the in-between, liminal spaces, the unmapped. They trusted the interconnection of everything.  

This wisdom can resource you now.

Introducing

NEXT STAGE CELTIC WHEEL 

TRIBE


A year long journey of ritual, practice and tribe for women who want to live more deeply, claim their sovereignty and usher in a new way together.

Here are some of our touchstones on that journey. 

a map for Next Stage 

SOVEREIGNTY 

Imagine having a map and guidance through the next 12 months, to help you play with becoming more yourself, living from your sovereign centre. 

Deepen into your depths, negotiate this turbulent time and gently learn to live as a wild intuitive force of nature, born with unique gifts for this time.

 the SACRED WORK of the FEMININE 

Our work now is to unravel and reweave.

Unravel and undo the unhealthy masculine patterns that are leaving us hard, depleted and powerless. Reweave the soft, fierce, intuitive feminine ways back into our lives so that we embody a radically new harmony between our inner feminine and masculine. 

a new relationship to NATURE, CYCLES + TIME 

As we travel around the Wheel, attuning to nature's cadence and the ritual rhythms of our ancestors, our perception of time changes. 

We stop living exclusively as slaves to the scarcity consciousness of linear time. We find ourselves in the creative consciousness and ease of cyclical time.  

ROOTED in PLACE  

No matter where you are on the planet, the Celtic Wheel connects you to the land you find yourself on and to your place in the "family of things." 

The ancients of Ireland honoured the land as feminine and they deeply understood the interconnectedness of all things. We remember that we are all indigenous to this planet.

a SISTERHOOD
of allies

We are more powerful in a tribe. As we share our stories in sisterhood a new more beautiful collective story comes to life through us. 

Come sit in circle around our virtual hearthstone, in an evolved sisterhood of modern medicine women on the same path, all over the planet.

next stage MANIFESTING + MAGIC

The journey through the seasons is the sacred cycle of birth, death and rebirth. It is the creative process of the cosmos. 

Women have always held knowledge of this sacred cycle in our bones. We are magical creative beings in a quantum field. This is a time of manifesting from the frequency of your Soul.

I'm Mari Kennedy,

I will be your guide.


The Celtic Wheel 
found its way to me in 2011, when I was in a very challenging and desolate place. For the preceding five years, my life had been in a constant state of flux, uncertainty and loss.

In April that year, my father was dying. I now know that the Celtic Wheel was his passing gift to me. It happened in a mythic moment in the auspicious Hazel Wood forest in Sligo, on the west coast of Ireland.

A month later I met my teacher in this tradition - Dolores Whelan - who has been a Carrier of the Flame of Celtic Consciousness for the past 30 years.

I had taken Celtic Studies as an Archaeology undergraduate at university, but it was years later, through the Celtic Wheel, that I entered a soul apprenticeship to the Celtic tradition.

The Celtic Wheel is the ritual calendar handed down to us from the indigenous Celtic and Pre-Celtic ancestors of this land. They were rooted in the rhythms of nature and the cosmos. The feminine and masculine were both honoured and they deeply understood the interconnectedness of all things.

Reconnecting with the wisdom of the Celtic Wheel profoundly changed how I approached my life. It helped me to make sense of my challenges and losses. It showed me the value and beauty of the ebbs and flows, the fallow and the fertile times.

It taught me to trust the falling apart, the dark and death.

It continues to demand that I own my radiant power as a woman and live unapologetically aligned to my Soul. It showed me the PATH OF EVOLVED SOVEREIGNTY. 

It offered me a map of how to reclaim and lead from my inner feminine - through rhythms, cycles and nature and in so doing, find a gentler, wiser and more fierce way to live.

It connected me to the mystical in a very practical way.

This is why I created this body of work. This is why I lead women.

The theme of the 23/24 cycle:

UISCE: Women and Water

Bodies of water were honoured as  sacred and connected to mythical goddesses by the ancients of this land of Ireland.

Holy wells, rivers, lakes and the sea were  portals into the Otherworld, places of healing, wisdom and power. Women gathered at wells and water was connected to liminality and the lunar mysteries.

In 2024 astrologically we are stepping deeper into the Age of Aquarius - The Water Carrier. 

Throughout this 23/24 cycle, each woman in TRIBE will be invited to be a Water Carrier. We will each connect and become stewards of a body of water in our particular corner of the planet. We will also come into relationship with the water in our own bodies.

Together we will return to a sacred honouring of living water on our land and in our bodies.

Expect some special Water Wisdom Holders popping in during the year.
