A Pilgrimage to Herne’s Forest

The tree had lived for at least 600 years having fallen from its parent as an acorn whilst England was in the grip of the Black Death. It knew the land before combustion engines when all around was silent, but for the falling hooves of passing horses. It had seen peace, and it had tasted

Thinking About – The ‘Natural World’

Is that lake natural or man-made? Druidry is a spiritual path that allows a deeper connection to the Natural World. I’ve heard these two statements spoken many times but I wonder how helpful they really are. The first one doesn’t have to refer to a lake, it can be a forest, a garden, a landscape.

Seems like I was had by the 1st April…
