Interview with Druid author Brendan Howlin

Sep 29th, 2017 | By | Category: Articles

Brendan Howlin is the author of The Handbook of Urban Druidry, and Pagan Portals The Urban Ovate. He’s a scientist by day, and an OBOD mentor.

Nimue: What are you working on at the moment?

Brendan: Working on book three about the Druid grade in an urban environment and going really slowly because the day job interferes.


Nimue: If you could ask everyone to do one thing, what would it be?

Brendan: Work on yourself because this is the only effective way to change the world in my opinion. No amount of meditating and praying for peace, etc. seems to have any effect.


Nimue: Which of your Moon Books titles should people check out, and why?

Brendan: Check out the Urban Ovate and see if you agree with your cultural heritage or not. This is proving to be the most controversial part of the book so far, so this means that people are engaging with it.


Nimue: What’s the weirdest Pagan request you’ve had this year?

Brendan: A request to do a Druid food blessing at a wedding! The people are not pagan.


Nimue: What are you most proud of?

Brendan: My bardic and ovate tutees who have scaled often insurmountable odds to get where they are now and they are really nice people too.


Nimue: What do you do when you need to feel grounded?

Brendan: I need to get out into nature, walk on the downs or in the woods or just sit in a park.
