Our mission is to assist special people like yourself who are drawn to this work through their heart’s Divine calling to serve the community, who wish to join us and be part of an inspiring organisation.

Your Pathway to Holistic Ministry

We strive to create Holistic & Spiritual leaders who love to inspire, empower and encourage positive change within their local community through kindness.  Kindness is at the heart of all we do.   Those who are accepted into our training will be on the path firstly to Clergy membership as a Ceremony Officiant which provides them with an optional pathway to further study in Holistic Ministry, and ordination as an Earth Spiritualist Holistic Minister.

Essential attributes required to join our Clergy team include a track record of outstanding community kindness of their own choosing,  a reverent spiritual connection to nature, the Earth and all living things, a love of Irish culture and traditions and a calling to teach and/or work in service for the community in which ever way you choose.

We have two study options, leading to ordination as an Earth Spiritualist Holistic Minister.

  • Certificate of Holistic Celebrancy – 6 months part time.  blended study mode: both in person and via video conference and home study.  This course is also certified by Dally Messenger III and the International College of Celebrancy in Australia, the world-recognised leaders in celebrancy training.

  • Wisdom of Danu – The Healer’s Way – additional 12 months part time, total 2  years.  Women and Mens Wisdom of Danu trainings are scheduled on separate dates.  This can be studied at any time, before or after Celebrancy training.  Leads to qualification as a Holistic Healing Practitioner and Ordination as an Earth Spiritualist Holistic Minister.

Our training is scheduled at various times of the year.
