The Calm after the Snow Melt

Tales from the Road – The Gates of Samhain open once more

As I glance along the feeds of my social media accounts I see friends celebrating Beltane. I can imagine the hedgerows at home beginning to be heavy with Hawthorn flowers, the birdsong will be a symphony of voices, the skylarks will be singing their song seemingly never

A Dark Moon Encounter at the Crossroads

During the recent Dark Moon phase me and Cerri sat down for a Journey with the Dark Moon. It's part of the work we are doing with our Druid Grove at the moment. We opened our inner Journey in our usual way and then went out, individually
