The Hag at the Well

This short piece explores the divine feminine as she manifests in the sacred landscape of the northwest of Ireland, in the element of water and in the spiritual lives of three wise women.

Órfhlaith Ni Chonaill, Mary Kate Hagan and Judith Hoad were kind enough to share their insights on the triple aspect of the goddess, Sheela-na-Gig as an archetype for our time and their own relationship with the divine in feminine form.

Dee Armstrong of Kila allowed the use of her amazing track ‘The Kissing Gate’ as the soundtrack.

The making of this film has been an immensely rewarding experience and has somehow helped me to realise and bring full-circle the divine grace that entered my own life and helped precipitate my ongoing journey towards wholeness.

  1. Beautiful! I'm sharing this on FB ... the images, the sounds, the voices, the content, all lovely.

    1. Thank you so much Mary Pat :) It's great to receive such good feedback. It was a subject very personal to me and surprisingly difficult to get my head around it being out there in the world and exposed!
      All the best
