Jude Lally is an artist, a writer and workshop facilitator. She grew up a few miles from Loch Lomond, where the river Leven meets the mighty River Clyde, on the West Coast of Scotland. She gained her masters degree in Human Ecology at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland) with her thesis ‘Fire in the Head, Heart and Hand. A Study of the Goddess Brigit as Goddess Archetype and her Relevance to Cultural Activists in Contemporary Scotland. She moved to Asheville, NC in 2009 where she runs her Celtic Soul School offering a program of workshops and courses. Her work is threefold. She is firstly a doll maker, carrying out an ancient tradition of shaping the divine female into form. Secondly a writer, her essay exploring the Goddess Brighid as Bear Mother was published in Patricia Monaghan’s Brigit. She is currently researching a book on the ancient mothers of Loch Lomond (her article of the same name appears in Sage Woman/issue 87/Sacred lands). Thirdly as an artist and workshop facilitator her Celtic Soul School is a place to put all of this into practice – offering workshops in Asheville and online courses. The Soul of the school is in offering shamanic journeys and guided meditations, which lead participants between the worlds to seek out their own visions and ask their own questions. Central to the schools philosophy is in sharing those experiences allowing the opportunity to explore what resonates with us as we learn from each other – and to then bring all that inspiration into sacred art.
