Dr. Sharon Blackie is an award-winning writer and international teacher whose work sits at the interface of psychology, mythology and ecology. Her highly acclaimed books, courses, lectures and workshops are focused on the development of the mythic imagination, and on the relevance of our native myths, fairy tales and folk traditions to the personal, social and environmental problems we face today.
The work of Dr Sharon Blackie has been profound in my spiritual journey. In other more simplistic terms – I’m a fan girl – and this episode today is probably going to show that to you quite quickly. Sharon’s work as a Celtic mythologist and author is lyrical, powerful, beautiful and strong. In particular her work has supported me on my own priestess and spiritual journey to feel more deeply into my own cultural background and ancestry as a woman of chiefly Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English make up. It is a dream come true for me to have her as a guest on The Priestess Podcast and I am overjoyed she is our first guest for this new season. Welcome to 2019!

Thank You so much for the lovely interview with Sharon Blackie!
I haven’t yet read any of her books but recently subscribed to her newsletter. As luck would have it I do have some Irish (Celtic) heritage to explore and am enthralled by the myths and potent earth spirituality of our people.
I just downloaded your ebook; as well as saved the link for listening to your podcasts.
You are doing an amazing work in the world! I look forward to learning and growing as I become more familiar with all you offer here. Thank YOU!!! PS..enjoy your trip
Thank you so much Myra. I am really glad you enjoyed the interview and given that, I know you will love Sharon’s books. She is a beautiful writer and for anyone with Celtic heritage – she REALLY knows her stuff!
Thank you so much for this glorious podcast! I just returned from my 5th trip to Ireland. I was on a tour called, “Turas d’Anan” on the Iveragh Peninsula, where Sharon Blackie’s name came up several times. The podcast was a wonderful articulation of everything that I found there in Ireland. I am 50% Irish and have been embracing my Irish roots for some time now. This podcast has given me Sharon’s voice and I will continue to follow her prescription to understand and appreciate, the land and my part, as well as my family’s part, in my Celtic heritage! Thank you again for this.
