Mythological Archetypes


The energy of the archetypes colours our daily lives in a mysterious and unfathomable way, manifesting in images. Everyday events, such as birth, death, marriage, family, the eternal rhythms of being human, have archetypal roots.

It is by using these archetypes, along with the backdrop of the seasons, the winds, weather and landscape, that we create mythology.

In the pre-Christian Irish tradition, the Mythological Cycle is the first of several cycles. This cycle is about gods and goddesses and stories including the Children of Lir, the voyage of Bran, the Formorians, the Fir Bolg, the Tuatha Dé Danann and the Celts.

Second, the Ulster Cycle includes Cú Chulainn, Queen Maedhbh and the Táin.

Next there is the Finn Cycle, which tells the story of Fionn McCumhail, Oisín, and the Fianna.

Finally, the Historical Cycle recounts the story of Tara and the High Kings.
