Fia Rua

Fia Rua, Irish for Red Deer, is the spiritual ally of forest  dwellers and earth tenders.  My life is inspired by the Fianna, forest shamans of ancient Ireland, and the Deer Clan of the Cherokee who walked upon this land. 

They are spiritual ancestors traveling beside me awakening dreams and visions... heroic ancestors who have struggled courageously for the good in the world. 

“Truth in our hearts.  Strength in our hands.  Consistency in our tongues.”  motto of the Fianna

your anam cara (soul friend)...
