Mara Freeman, M.A., is an internationally recognised British author and teacher of Celtic wisdom and the Western Mystery Tradition, which she has taught for over thirty years. Her first book, Kindling the Celtic Spirit, (Harper, 2001) has been hailed as the best modern introduction to Celtic spirituality and sacred traditions. A second book, Grail Alchemy: Initiation in the Celtic Mystery Tradition (Inner Traditions, 2014) has been called ” a Celtic literary temenos of our time, a sacred space, in which to further explore one’s own inner journey and transformation.”
While living in California for 28 years, Mara lectured and gave workshops throughout the United States, as well as leading retreats and pilgrimages in Britain and Ireland. Mara is director of the Avalon Mystery School, a three-year training programme in the Arts of Sacred Magic. A licensed psychologist, psychic and astrologer, Mara also offers personal consultations in the Celtic tradition of Anamcara, or soul-guidance work.
