What is Tyrian?

Tyrian is a 501c3 inter-spiritual network created to awaken the arts, healing, and peace within each of us.

Totem created by Ohio artist Linda Apple.

We are an intentional learning community founded in the year 2000 on Kelleys Island, Ohio, and dedicated to Brigid, both the goddess and the saint. We named the organization for the Tyrian color of Brigid’s legendary mantle.


We select an artists to honor with the annual Tyrian Artist Award. In 2002 we began restoration of the Tyrian Oasis, rumored to have been an underground railroad stop on Cleveland’s West Side and consecrated the home in 2003 as an Urban Ashram in Ohio City. In 2010 we added the Irene Sukle Art Teacher Award which is awarded every 3-5 years.


Dagmar Braun Celeste, ordained roman catholic priest, author, and longtime life balance coach resides in Ohio and provides life coaching and spiritual direction based on The Tyrian Way, an inter-spiritual horarium.

Furthermore, members of Tyrian were instrumental in helping Mary Jo Ruggieri grow the Columbus amd Cleveland Polarity Schools as well Holistic Health Careers.


Additionally, we sponsor or cosponsor annual events associated with International Peace Day on September the 22nd.

Also, in partnership with women in Kildare, Ireland, Brigid’s birthplace and Sacred Space in Cleveland, Ohio we sponsored a Brigid Peace Festival every year until 2007. Furthermore Tyrian supports the formation of a U.S.Peace Department, the Ohio Commission of Conflict Resolution, The George Mason University peace education efforts, and periodically hosts Peace Forums with Nobel Peace Prize Winners.
