About Elena

Introducing Elena Danaan

Born in France, I studied Fine Arts and Archaeology in Paris and spent twenty years of my life as a field archaeologist in Egypt (in Karnak temples, Cairo, Denderah and the Valley of the Kings), and in France with Neolithic, Celtic and Gallo-Roman cultures. With a university degree in Egyptian religion, I also had the privilege to be trained locally in traditional Egyptian Magic.

Magic has always been part of my life. From a young age I was aware of my vocation and discovered early that I could heal and foretell. During my twenties I travelled frequently to Brittany to spend time with local Druids. The true nature of my path was revealed to me in the heart of Broceliande. After years of travels around the world as an archaeologist, I moved to Ireland and embraced my true calling.

Celebrant & Druidess

As a qualified druidess from the order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, I lead the grove “Solas an Iarthair” in West Kerry, facilitating ceremonies for the eight Celtic festivals of the year. I am a celebrant for all rites of life and passage, having trained and qualified with River Jones. Being a druid is a vocation, a passion, a privilege and a way of life, in service to the community of all living beings

Runes Wisdom

I honour the heritage of my maternal great grandmothers from the Baltic island of Gotland, where magic interweaves the traditions of Saami and Norse cultures since time immemorial. I was taught the art of runes as a Völva - traditional Norse seers and wise women, daughters of Freya - receiving my first set of runes from my grandmother at the age of nine. Their wisdom has since blessed my path

Healer

My competencies as a reiki practitioner and Celtic druidess join with sound therapy and traditional shamanism to promote healing. The first step is to determine the right method for the individual and then proceed, using different tools such as aura reading, reiki, sound healing, protection work, shamanic cleansing, deep shamanic journey, and druid energetic healing, based on the different components of the body and the elemental forces of nature
