Thinking About – Pilgrimage

Last weekend was the Winter Gathering of the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids. The Order holds two gatherings each year, one in June, the other December, both in the Somerset town of Glastonbury. 200 members from all across the world gather together for community, music, ritual

I go to the Church of Trees

That magnificent nature poem was written by my Bardic Buddy Arthur Hinds and to me sums up in just a few verses the reverence we Druids hold for these beings. If ever I feel upset, or disconnected from my Path, if ever I need to remember what

Thinking About – Living a Pagan Lifestyle

I received an excellent question via my Facebook page over the weekend. It was this: It's a little complicated, but thinking on Paganism and Druidry as more than a spiritual belief, but as a lifestyle, in today's modern life, is it possible to live in such a

Thinking About – The Hunter and the Hunted

When I'm out walking there is a sound that I love to hear. It is a sound that was absent in Sussex for many years, and it is the call of the buzzard. Not too long ago I had to get in my car and head west

I open to the Dark Half of the Year

There are some who see Samhain as the beginning of Winter, just as they see Lughnasadh as the beginning of Autumn, but that has never worked for me. To me the Solstices and Equinoxes mark the very beginning of the associated season, with the Fire Festivals the

Thinking About – Samhain

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." The voice sings during the Christmas TV advert I will doubtless see this coming week, but I know for many of my friends this is actually their favourite time. It's not mine, but I totally get why it is

Bushcraft – Completing the Circle

So here is something you might not know about me. In the mid 2000s I ran a Wilderness Awareness/Bushcraft School called Wildlore. It ran for a couple of years from a small woodland me and Cerri co-owned in Sussex. During those two years we ran two introductory
