Hidden Hearth, nestled within the serene Lisnavagh House, invites you to dive deep into the ancient traditions of Amanita Muscaria mushroom and the rich tapestry of Irish shamanism.

Festival Highlights:

Hidden Hearth is a two-day celebration where we bid farewell to the outward half of the year, embracing the transition to the introspective months ahead. It’s a time to reflect on the abundance of the brighter seasons, release what no longer serves us, and nourish our spirits.

At the heart of Hidden Hearth lies a vibrant mosaic of artistic expressions, including music, visual art, poetry, engaging discussions, mesmerizing performances, and handcrafted treasures. This festival is not only a celebration but also a sanctuary—a place where you can retreat from the bustling world and reconnect with nature.

Holistic Transformation:

The festival offers an array of holistic workshops and classes designed to nurture your body, mind, and spirit as we transition into the changing season. These sessions provide support and inspiration, empowering individuals to take proactive steps in addressing climate change.

The Amanita Tea Ceremony Workshop:

Nestled within the enchanting ‘Visioneire’ – The Stables at Lisnavagh House, our workshop delves into the wisdom of Amanita Muscaria mushroom. Explore its historical significance in the practices of our Irish ancestors, its potential roles in shamanic rituals, and it’s intriguing connection to Imbas Forasnai.

The workshop unfolds with an enlightening talk, offering insights into the ancient knowledge held by Amanita Muscaria. Following this, we come together for a ceremonial Amanita tea ritual, a bridge to the mystical realms of shamanic experience. As the tea takes hold, our senses awaken, and we prepare to embark on a journey of self-expression and artistic discovery.

Guided by experienced facilitators Rob Hough and Maria Johnson, our free-flowing art workshop allows your creativity to flow freely onto canvas or paper. The altered state of consciousness induced by the tea becomes the catalyst for a unique form of artistic expression—one that is deeply personal and spiritually connected.
