Testimonials

Amantha’s love and knowledge of Ireland are evident in everything she does. From planning the very best itinerary….. To creating sacred space both within the group and as tour guide to sacred sites…… to her incredible storytelling ability of the myths and legends of the land, we, as a group, and myself, as an individual felt held and nurtured, in the arms of the goddess. I highly recommend Amantha to anyone looking for something beyond just seeing Ireland. With Amantha you will feel and see with all your senses and come away having experienced both an inner and an outer journey.

Amantha’s work is universal; it empowers women of all creeds, traditions, and nationalities. Her teachings give a transmission of the spirit of womankind before the ravages of the patriarchy.

After her training, I now embody a grounding of intuitive knowing which allows me to express my true nature with confidence and passion. I am a creative, loving modern woman enlivened by ancient mysteries.

Amantha’s clairvoyant skill gives her perceptive, accurate insight to know what each person needs in the moment which creates an immediate atmosphere of trust and safety, within each individual and within our group.

Having worked and trained with Amantha for over 10 years, I now embody a deep knowing of my roots, my ancestors, and a connection with the otherworld that has enriched my life beyond words.

During the training, ancient wisdom is palpable in Amantha’s presence, activating a deepening perception in all of us which, over time, has naturally become integrated in my own work as a teacher and a healer.

Before I started working with Amantha, I felt stuck. My flow of creativity had stopped; I’d experienced Artist’s Block for so many years that I wondered if I’d ever create again. Internally, my attention wandered aimlessly; I was looking for something but didn’t know what.

During my training with Amantha, I learned to relax enough to meditate and journey. I learned the tools and skills to seek answers within myself to issues or problems that I ‘d been ‘stuck’ in. This was so empowering because growing up female, I was led to believe that ‘someone’ else (usually a male authority) had the power to resolve issues—and I was totally incapable of it. Even just accepting the fact that I was capable of this was huge for me and quite refreshing.

Amantha’s Teachings have led me on a journey of walking a more truthful, honest path. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s an easier one. However I have to admit that I have gained enriching life experiences as a result. Trusting and connecting with myself brings me to a place where I now connect with Nature and the energies and stories of the land (the deities, fairies and nature spirits, etc).

As an artist I now am able to make the invisible visible through the medium of oil paint on canvas, pencil and charcoal on paper. I’m delighted at the rebirth of my creativity. I’m grateful also for a renewal of fulfillment and peace within.

Amantha’s Murphy’s teachings have completely changed my life—and my outlook on life. Amantha teaches from the most beautiful heart space I have ever experienced.

We are all called to this work for different reasons and the healing I received has been deep and profound. In Amantha’s trainings, we are fully seen and heard by our circle sisters; this recognition has created a profound healing within. The women I trained with are now my sisters; we are there for each other in times of life’s crisis’s.

I’m now living my life embodying the Sacred Feminine. Daily, I feel held by the Mother, our Earth and all Her faces: Tlagchta, Calli, Bridget, Macha.

Amantha shares Life’s teachings with kindness, truth and harmlessness.

This Pilgrimage could not have come at a better time in my life – at the cusp of growing into who I am as an adult and discovering my own path through life. The most valuable parts of my journey were finding my way back to myself and the strengthened relationship with my mom. I felt a glowing recognition of self working our way through Ireland allowing a renewed sense of power to shine through. I have a better understanding of who I am and how to hold on to that power. Having the mother-daughter dynamic of the group allowed my mom and I to grow into our new roles and have a deeper understanding of each other. These are memories that I will treasure and hold with me forever.

I will forever be changed for the better by this journey. I found my way back to my faith and spirituality. These had long faded into the background of my life but now a daily practice and setting intentions has become more of a priority.

I carried my visions of finding the strength to use my voice home with me from Ireland. I learned to accept myself and all of my imperfections as well as accepting that my journey is my journey. I carry with me the support of my crones, mothers, maidens, ancestors, and the Goddess.

Ireland is a beautiful country and Kerry is perhaps the most scenic place of all to visit – the sea, the mountains, that Irish greenery. Couple that with a group of people interested in Celtic and spiritual heritage and self-development and you have an idea of what a Pilgrimage with Amantha involves. And the food is surprisingly good and cosmopolitan in a country with such a small population. Amantha is the leader of the pilgrimage, and has a deep passion for and knowledge of this land. She is also a healer, medium and counsellor of many years’ experience – and perhaps I know that side of her best of all. The holiday is worth it for her guidance alone – she is an extraordinarily gentle and insightful tour guide, a calm fulcrum no matter what. And you will probably find yourself singing.”

TESTIMONIAL FOR LEVEL 1 APPRENTICE TRAINING

Why did I take Amantha Murphy’s Level 1 Irish Shaman apprentice training—and what did I get out of it?

I’ve studied indigenous cultures since high school, applying their teachings to my life and work, but I’ve refrained from learning the higher-level ancient shamanic teachings—until now. Because this Irish shamanic training is in the lineage of my own ancestors, I decided to do it.

And now I know it’s true: When we learn the ancient ways of our own indigenous ancestors, a lost vitality is restored to us. I feel it, since returning home, in every cell of my body—and in the way I carry myself and my worth.

I now have a much deeper working knowledge of the Wheel of the Year, the 3 Worlds, the Bodies, and Women’s Rituals and Ceremonies. Best of all, I returned home after Amantha’s amazing ocean-inspired week-long training:
without old limiting beliefs and patterns which I’d gently released during the week
viewing my life from a new, higher perspective
more easily able to accomplish my goals (I finished a huge years-long project within a week of returning!)
and feeling so much more vital and joyful.

Thank you, Amantha!
