Y Mabinogi – Planes, Trains, and Film Scores

As I mentioned in my previous Y Mabinogi update, the spoken word sections of this project will be around an hour and a quarter long. I've produced the DruidCast podcast from my home studio since 2007 with no issues at all, but sitting in the quiet of a room, simply

Thinking About – Celebrancy

As a movement grows and matures it seeks to firm the foundations of its community, and one of the ways it can achieve this is by re-introducing lost rites of passage, and reclaiming those that have remained, but have seemingly lost their way. In the secularised West our rites of

Y Mabinogi – Pushing the Boundaries of those Comfort Zones

If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll already know that my current recording project is quite different from anything I've attempted before. It is a spoken word, musical, and dramatic presentation of the First Branch of the Mabinogion. This has been something I've wanted to do for many

Every Monday morning I have a ritual. I go to my studio/workspace, light some incense, sit quietly, then shuffle a Tarot deck asking the question, "What are the trends I should be aware of in my life this coming week?" I continue to shuffle the deck, focussing on the question

Initiation and the Power of Transformation

Initiations can often be very powerful experiences. I was initiated into the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids on the Spring Equinox of 1995, having joined the Order in April 1994. I hadn't rushed in. I wanted to be sure I had found my home. I remember the night well. The

The Pagan Community – A Survivors Guide

It's the only way to be sure that seductive snooze button remains unpushed.
