THE COMPASSION DIALOGUES

Conversations that explore the soul, inspiration and motivation behind our guest’s public face

 

These conversations are enquiring and personal, relating to the topic and presenter in a deeply humane and relevant way.
We want  to find out what energises these people, what motivates and inspires them; and then explore their public work.

The host for all these dialogues is William Bloom, lead for the Spiritual Companions Trust.

Access to these live Zoom events is by donation. The £8 suggested donation in the Order box can be upped or downed 🙏

By signing up for the live session, you get access to a recording of the dialogue within 48hrs of it happening, otherwise they are also uploaded on YouTube a month after their recording.  VIEW PAST VIDEOS CLICK HERE

The dialogues will also be available on our Compassion Dialogue podcast platforms. LISTEN ON PODCASTING SITES HERE.

Caitlin Matthews

Honouring the Soul of the Celtic Mysteries and European Shamanism

TUESDAY 12th March
7:30pm (London time)

Caitlín Matthews is a pioneering, global authority on Celtic Wisdom, the Western Mysteries and the ancestral traditions of Britain and Europe. She is an author, a musician and most importantly a practitioner of the mystic and magical arts.

She has authored over 80 books including ‘Diary of a Soul Doctor’, ‘Sophia: Goddess of Wisdom, Bride of God’, and ‘The Celtic Book of the Dead.’ Her voice and harp-playing are beautiful and genuinely enchanting.
With her husband, John Matthews, she has been a major source and innovator in the renaissance of the Celtic and Western magical and esoteric traditions, sometimes bridging between mystical Christianity and pagan ceremony.

Her shamanic vocation emerged in her early ability to ‘sing between the worlds’ and to embody spirits. She is also a fantastic storyteller and has a cat called Scaramouche.
