Correspondence Courses

Céile Dé do not offer any correspondence courses to the general public. Our foundational course for newcomers, called Forus Feasa, is only available to members of our Caim. Please see our FAQs page for more information.


The Teachers

The fact that all of our teachers are women has led a few people to think that we are a female-only tradition: this is not the case, it just so happens that, so far, only women have felt and responded to the call to teach. If all of the faces below were male, as they may have been in decades past, it might not have caused anyone to assume very much at all... perhaps society still has a way to go when it comes to assumptions, but we're slowly getting there! Céile Dé only endorse teachings given by the people below, who have been trained and ordained to pass on the tradition in its purest form.

She also has been a tutor for Forus Feasa, a course that grounds to newcomers to the tradition in our foundational teachings.

Sr Fionn


Sister Fionntulach -

Sister Fionn, as most people call her, lives in a small village in the heart of Scotland. She entered the Céile Dé community in the 1980s, when it was solely a monastic tradition and has been teaching since 1992. Towards the turn of the millennium, she received a call to extend the teachings more widely and in 2004, with the blessing of her teacher, she founded our current community of lay-practitioners, known as 'The Caim'.
