Welcome to HedgeWalking
Reclaiming the Wise Woman
HedgeWalking promotes authentic, land-based spiritual practice based on the indigenous myths and traditions of Ireland and the British Isles. Our work is about reawakening the indigenous ways of knowing that emerge from the long history of our relationships with these lands, and fashioning them into meaningful and relevant practices for today. We’re particularly interested in reclaiming the rich, ancient heritage of the Wise Woman in all her many forms.
HedgeWalking’s offerings are curated by writer, mythologist and psychologist Dr Sharon Blackie, and are offshoots of The Hedge School: an initiative based in the west of Ireland which offers resources aimed at building a new folk culture – practical guidance for living well, living authentically, connecting with our places, and finding a deep, embodied sense of belongingness to this beautiful, animate Earth.
‘You can walk on the path, or you can walk through the hedge.’
