From a 1960s international hippie, through academic Philosophy, Radical Feminism, the Craft, humanistic psychology counselling, self employed business, writing, teaching, networking - Shan has always fought for her own and others' freedom of spirit.
Shan at Brighde's Well, Kildare. Mother of Tal, beloved of John, she has lived for over 20 years with very poor health, so she developed online skills. Drawn to (Welsh) Celtic traditions since very young, it was a great joy to go into greater depth when she handfasted John (a Welshman) in 1989.
In recent years apart from founding House Morgain Shan has developed as a Mabinogi scholar.
She founded Circlework in 1985, and she is a writer and Storyteller.

Until the 80s he had a career in public service, then left to be a full time sailor, notably crossing the Atlantic as first mate. Following his dream he sailed his own yacht "Swift" a 26ft gaff rig cutter 1932 teak built, and lived in the Hebrides.
Handfasting Shan in 1989 he returned to land life, making model boats and teaching political economy. With Shan and the HoG Clan John led the Pagan Halloween Festival.
He now claims House Morgain as his because his hands have worked it as a craftsman. Apart from the 'dirty science' as he calls politics, and his workshop, John's other great skill is the language of Cats.
He is the coordinator of the Political Economy cylch (path).

Lorri is a senior nurse, and like most in such work a highly practical and no-nonsense person. Yet given true need she is kindness itself.
Her great passion is her dog pack of high pedigree German shepherds, strong, tough working guard dogs kept in strict training. In 2013 Lorri realised her dream of visiting us all in person at House Morgain.
Lorri takes an especial interest in our online or isolated members.
