Rhiannon – Mother and Great Queen

Way back in DruidCast history, on DruidCast episode 4 from August 2007 to be precise, there is a talk given by Professor Ronald Hutton on the history of the Pagan Horned God. It's his usual excellent presentation full of depth, entertainment, information, and humour, as is Ronald's

Thinking About – There is no separation, you are part of me

Firstly, let me wish you a happy and blessed Solstice. It may be that, like me, you are gazing at a clear blue sky here in the northern hemisphere noticing the clarity of the light on the day of the Summer Solstice. Or maybe you are heading
