Today’s podcast is an Irish tale of two shepherds. When a white butterfly flies out of one of the shepherd’s mouth while he is sleeping, the other follows it until he reaches a horse skull. Once he returns, the now awake shepherd tells him about how he discovered a castle in his dreams. Be sure to tune in!
