Melanie O’Driscoll

I have a background in zoology and environmental education and I was ordained in July 2022. My practice is firmly earth-rooted and informed by the ecological crisis we are living through.

My ministry is planted in the land of Cork (Ireland) and the surrounding harbor. I offer ‘Self Care is Climate Care’ sessions to activists facing burnout and I host an online and in-person mixed-gender book club where we explore the “Women Who Run With the Wolves”.

My spiritual practice is informed by Niciren Buddhism, earth-based spirituality, and mystical Christianity. I love to create and hold spaces with sound where people can rest, receive, and be nourished so that their actions can have a greater, more positive impact on the world.

I offer sound baths, spiritual counselling, and life ceremonies, and have a particular fondness for baby namings, family blessings, and rite of passage for teens.
