IMBAS Mission Statement

IMBAS is an organization that promotes the spiritual path of Senistrognata and traditional Celtic culture. The Celts are recognized as the tribal Celts of Iron Age Europe and the modern peoples of Alba (Scotland), Breizh (Brittany), Cymru (Wales), Éire (Ireland), Kernow (Cornwall), and Mannin (Isle of Man). Senistrognata is based around the home, the family, and the community/tribe in honoring the land, the ancestors, and the traditional Celtic Gods and Goddesses. We do not practice our spirituality, we live it.

Membership in IMBAS and participation in our activities is open to all regardless of age, race, ethnic origin, gender, gender orientation, sexual orientation, or disability, and we do not permit discrimination on these grounds in the activities of IMBAS or any of its affiliated groups.

IMBAS promotes Senistrognata primarily by:

  • publishing a quarterly journal, along with other publishing activities,
  • chartering local IMBAS groups and encouraging networking within the Senistrognata community,
  • providing a training program for prospective Seanchái (traditional lore keepers),
  • providing accurate information to the public about Celtic culture and Senistrognata, and
  • through the living heritage of Celtic folk arts, crafts, traditions, and languages.
