NUALA FLYNN

Memory, Land-guage and Sovereignty
In the smithy of the imagination with Brigid and James Joyce at Imbolc

We are part of Nature

February 2nd is the Celtic festival of Imbolc, rebirth of spring in the the maiden form of Brigid, midwife of new life in the cycle of the year, synchronous with Candlemas, and many end of winter festivals. Known in Celtic myth and history as goddess and saint, attributed with the fire of inspiration, blacksmithing, patroness of farming, beer, wonder worker, protectress, embodying women’s spiritual wisdom and sovereignity. She is rooted in nature, associated with the dawn, the daily birth of the sun. Her memory comes alive in wells, stones, rivers, dreams, stories.

It’s also the birthday of James Joyce, who created a new form of storytelling. In Ulysses we are lost for 24 hours in intimate and mythic sketches, inner and outer dialogues of Dublin folk. In Finnegans Wake, he conceives a dream language, the dream of Finn MacCool, dead and revived by the water of life Anna Livia the River Liffey.

Multilayered, multi lingual, musical, punning and witty, we are de-centred, can’t find our way. With a monkish scholarship of history, literature, philosophy and myth, he weaves chaos and cosmos, cycles of death and renewal, inner and outer. Dawn threshold permeates his work. In exile from Ireland, he is sovereign in the land of imagination, not without cost.

In our deepening chaos and fragmentation, are this visionary pair alive, vitalizing, speaking to our need for cultural renewal, challenging the selfish nationalistic version of Sovereignity. Are they playing a part in reforging an ecological consciousness of home, of memory in the mythopoetic landscape?

Nuala Flynn is a depth psychologist and artist. She has worked for 15 years with Irish survivors of institutional abuse. She is a ReVision trained psychotherapist, MA Imaginal Studies, a Marion Woodman Foundation Bodysoul Leader, an Embodied Imagination therapist in training with Robert Bosnak. She practices in East London and offers therapy, dreamwork, supervision and Social Dreaming Matrix hosting.

She is grateful for the wellspring of her ancestral landscape and imagination in the West of Ireland.
