There’s a Tree by the Well in the Wood, that’s covered in Garlands

Imbolc, Candlemass, on or around the 1st February but for me when the land is white with Snowdrops. A festival that for all my Pagan life has been sacred to the Goddess Brighid - Goddess of Smiths, Healers and Poets, and also one of the Goddesses whose

The Awen Journey – Damh the Bard/Anderida Grove

In 2010 members of the Anderida Grove gathered to record the sacred Druid Awen chant (which means 'Flowing Spirit', or 'Divine Inspiration'). I later added drones, drums, bells, gongs and other percussion to create this hour-long soundtrack to be used for Inner Journeying. Thanks goes to the
