Brendan began Jungian studies 35 years ago and has been seeing clients for inner work for 25 years.

He has presented his work in the US, Europe Canada and South Korea. He teaches in London once a year and is in private practice in Ballinasloe.

Eleanor Shanley’s career has spanned over 20 years, and she still possesses a voice as pure and lyrical as the first day she stepped in front of a microphone with De Danann in 1990. Renowned for her unique interpretation of Irish and Roots songs, Eleanor Shanley has been at the top of her profession since her first appearance with De Danann. She recorded two critically acclaimed albums with them, A Jacket of Batteries and Half Set in Harlem.

John Feeley, one of Ireland’s leading classical guitarists, is well known for his own delightful guitar arrangements of Irish music which appear on several of his many recordings.
