MARCH 2020

Dear Friend,


A very happy St. Patrick's Day to you and your loved ones this month! I so look forward to this time of year and to celebrating the leprechauns and other elementals in my life. Celebrate with me by taking advantage of our sale on leprechaun books and DVD for the month of March.

There are still seats left in the Iceland Magical Mystical tour in May, and my Canadian workshop on working with nature spirits this month. Summer activities are fast approaching with dates in Europe and our annual retreat here at Diamond Heart, in BC, Canada.

Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and our March month of celebrating all things elemental ("...an' especially us leprechauns"--Lloyd)!


ARTICLE: Leprechauns and the 'Craic'

by Lloyd the Leprechaun


Hello - Lloyd the leprechaun here!

If you’re not Irish, you’ve probably never heard of the Craic. Well that’s something very important you’ve been missing. The truth is that leprechauns taught the Irish about the Craic. It basically means to keep your sense of humor, have a good time, and don’t get your knickers tied in a knot when things aren’t going the way you thought they should.

Humans do so love to control their life, but what’s the fun in having everything all predictable. No surprises. BORING! Even elves have a tendency to take themselves too seriously, like to look good to others, that sort of thing. So leprechauns regard it as their sacred duty to help those poor elves and humans to lighten up by turning their expectations bottom side up.

I did this with a tour that Tanis led a group of 30 pilgrim’s on — she wrote about it in Pilgrimage with the Leprechauns and if you’d like to hear more just read along.

Summer with the lep-cover

AN IRISH JEWEL, far more than a fairy tale. A good humored, true account of Tanis’ summer in a cottage in Ireland where the resident leprechaun taught her about the evolution of elementals (fairies, elves, leprechauns). Learn about the importance of humans and elementals working together for the betterment of both of their races and the Earth.


FULL OF INFORMATION about nature spirits or elementals, as they like to call themselves. The trolls, elves, goblins, and brownies are as real for the reader as the various humans whom they partner. For anyone planning a trip to the sacred sites of Ireland, or to Ireland itself for that matter, this book abounds in nuggets as precious as the pot of gold that the Leprechaun holds at the end of the rainbow.


Elementals DVD:

Learn to work and play with elementals, also called nature spirits, in this informative and engaging DVD with real images of elementals. With the good-humoured spirit akin to an Irish story-teller Tanis brings us on a journey to learn more about elementals.

You will come away from this DVD with:
* an appreciation of the beings with whom humans share this planet
* tools to work with the elementals
* an understanding of why it is essential that humans learn to co-create with natural and spiritual laws in order to become guardians of the Earth

This timely DVD assists us to more fully embrace all consciousness on Earth and to take responsibility for our place in the plan.

It's always St. Patrick's Day in my house! All types of elementals and fairies are welcome here...

Do you have an image of a leprechaun, gnome or another elemental? We would love to add it to the Leprechaun Website.

Send it in to info(at)iitransform.com, or post it on Instagram using the hashtag #tanisleprechaun (remember to make it public) and we'll share it in our next IIT newsletter, too.

I'm looking forward to seeing your photos.
