I’m Jen, a Feminine Embodiment Coach, Mythologist & Anthropologist.
I come from a maternal lineage of storytellers, raised on my grandmother, Frances O’Sullivan’s macabre tales of banshees, púcas, and changeling fairies. This fuelled my fascination with Irish myth and folklore, and eventually, a degree in Medieval Irish and Celtic Studies.
I married my native teachings with a curiosity of other cultures, and pursued my studies as an anthropologist, spending the past 14 years working in global justice. My experiences of myth cross-culturally provided insights into how humans make meaning in the world.
Yet, story is bigger than any one culture. Story is as old as time. Story is every living being who has graced this planet. Story is our lifeforce. It courses through our veins. Story is what it means to be human.
This is WHY we are here – to create our stories.
My life story recently pulled me home to my roots. It created a holy longing to fuse my passion for Women’s Empowerment with Celtic mythology. And so, the Celtic School of Embodiment became a new chapter. This is my legacy; inherited from Frances, and for my wondrous sons, Joel and Barra. By being here you are part of my story. I hope to become part of yours.
