Eira is a practicing Alchemist and is a member of the International Alchemy Guild. Within the discipline, she is a student of Hermeticism/Hermetic Principles and Hermetic and Alchemistic Philosophy. Eira is also a student of the Philosophy of Thomism; the words and thoughts of St. Thomas Aquinas regarding the nature of nature both seen and unseen.
Eira is a past student of Golden Dawn (High or Ceremonial Magic)/Rosicrucian/ and is a past member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Eira is a current student of The Institute of Hermetic Studies and presently attends two Mystery Schools.
Within the interconnected realms of Christian Mysticism, Thomism, Hermetic, Kabbalistic and Alchemistic Philosophies, and in correspondence with the sciences of Alchemy and Astrology, Eira has an understanding of Theurgy, meaning Divine Action or God-Working within the operations of nature.
As a "student of nature" she has an understanding of the mysterious and symbolic language known as The Green Language/Forbidden Language/Language of the Birds, which can be understood as "The Language of Nature." She often teaches others the art of "Walking in Beauty" which is an application of this ancient symbolic system of connecting to, and interacting with, The Divine-- while walking in nature.
Eira spent 8 years sequestered in one of Earth’s Power Spots observing, experiencing and at times interacting with the Spirit of Place/Egregor/Conscious Wisdom/ which resided there. During this time she documented her experience and photographed and measured the energies (with instruments) for others. Within this period she extensively studied the ancient science of Geomancy (accessing, manipulating and harnessing earth energies/not to be confused with Fludd's Divination), and Dowsing. Her experiences were profound, other-worldly and inexplicable often acting outside the understanding of modern science. It was here her journey into the "old arts and sciences" truly began. In was here she began to understand the Divine Purpose of these unusual places; 100 percent of our sacred sites are built upon them; 100 percent of our oldest cathedrals and temples are built upon them. Some say Religion was born in them. And it was "here" she began to utilize Earth’s Power Places as vehicles of personal transformation-- to study the ancient art of "Raising" (one's consciousness.)
It is her belief that one must swim within the many disciplines of the esoteric in order to understand the exoteric; all things which have everything to do with the mysterious power of the earth, the cosmos, the human psyche and The Mysteries themselves. It is her experience, that though she has studied many arcane and at times heretical arts and sciences, she has come to know that these things led her, perhaps through the back door, straight to God in a profound and sacred way, through the understanding of them. Not born or raised in a Christian tradition, today she privately embraces the Orthodox Catholic Faith.
Simply put, Eira is a student of The Divine Mysteries, all Things of God, which continuously unfold all around us, often unseen or unnoticed, each and every second of each and every day.
