About

Way of the Village was set up in 2009 to foster ‘village’ approaches to emotional health, drawing on cultural heritage as an inspiration.  Between 2009-2013 it delivered 70 days of workshops and events to further its aims, reaching over 600 people. Many described their experiences as a milestone in their lives.

In 2014 founder Maeve Gavin started her family, and Way of the Village took a pause.  In 2016 Way of the Village formed as a community association governed by a management committee. In 2017/18 we delivered The Keening Wake project which aimed to introduce people to the keening tradition of Scotland and Ireland. In doing so we hoped to inspire people to reflect on the many ways grief and loss can be approached today. The project was funded The Heritage Lottery Fund and Tasgadh Traditional Arts Small Grants.

Way of the Village’s Aims:
Way of the Village aims to support people to become soulful, nature connected adults, experiencing life and their communities to the fullest.

Specifically, to support individuals to move through blockages (including grief) into realising their personal purpose and gifts for their community.

Way of the Village fosters ‘village’ (and group based) approaches to emotional health.

Way of the Village draws on cultural heritage as an inspiration.
