Jo Ashbeth Coffey has been increasingly actively involved with the pagan community, and OBOD druidry in particular since the mid 1990s. As well as a wide range of writing, her druidry leads her to work as a life coach, dance teacher and as a textile artist, working with reclaimed items, ideas, feelings and words.

She has had various articles published in magazines. Pagan Planet is the natural next step before publishing her book on Pragmatic Druidry which looks at druidry from the view of a life coach and healer, examining how druidry can run through our lives and restore us, and considering realistic and achievable ways of opening ourself to this.

Her article for Pagan Planet, “Honouring the Not Yet Dead”, is about connecting with people in our communities and supporting others. The title is a reference to the enthusiasm she sees displayed for toasting ancestors at events; revering them at ancient monuments, and for organisations such as “Honouring the Ancient Dead‚ÄĚ. It is meant with respect, but also with the hope that some of that enthusiastic energy is also channelled into familial elder care and the less romantic cause of caring for elderly strangers.

    This “free sharing” of inmofration seems too good to be true. Like communism.

      What is a blog if not a place to share? We all need to make a living, and often things are given away in the hopes it will lead to the recipient wanting to buy, but no one has to. Not very much like communism at all, really.
