Winter Solstice Video Link from Newgrange

Dec 18th, 2017 | By

Although I live in Ireland I am sadly the other end of the country from the Megalithic Passage Tomb at Newgrange where hundreds gather for the sunrise of Winter Solstice. Those few lucky people enough to be able to enter the tomb gather in the darkness to await the rays of the sun which light up

The Holiday Tree

Dec 16th, 2017 | By

This might look like a Christmas tree and most people who call to us would say that’s what it is but if they look closely they will see that it really isn’t. Ok, we have lights, a few baubles and the odd Santa but almost all of the decorations on our tree have been brought

Robin Song

Dec 15th, 2017 | By

Midwinter is a time when robins give us their dawn and dusk songs. It’s wonderful to hear as the days get shorter and shorter and the time of Sun Return drawn near. I listen every day, open my bedroom window whatever the weather and however cold it is just to be enchanted. And sometimes this

Thoughts on Our Collective Past, Present and Future as Derived From “A Legacy of Druids”

Very rarely do I get excited enough to blog about a book that I am currently reading. However, that is the case with “A Legacy of Druids” by Ellen Evert Hopman. The book is a series of discussions and interviews with various Druids, many over twenty years old at the time of publishing (2016). I

A brief introduction

Dec 11th, 2017 | By

I feel that I should start my blog posts here, really, with a brief introduction. I’m a very long way from being famous, or even notorious, even within Pagan circles, but I’m going to be popping up here on a more or less regular basis (and possibly for a long time), so at some point

Our multi-talented authors have been posting videos again – here’s a few things to entertain you… From Robin Herne – the Hindu tale of Yudhishthira, one of the five Pandavas, and his devoted dog.   From Nimue Brown, a little menopausal, or should that be menoporpoisal poetry…   From Elen Sentier, playing with the Ferlies…  

Getting back to nature

Dec 7th, 2017 | By

In 2018, we’re looking forward to publishing a number of books that really take Paganism back to its roots in the natural world. We love all the many ways in which a person can develop their spiritual path and enrich their practice, but it’s good to get back to these fundamental things regularly as well.

A druid nose against the church window

Dec 6th, 2017 | By

As this is my first blog, a short introduction is perhaps in order. I have been a pagan all my adult life, having been introduced to Druidry at the age of 18. I have been a student and member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids since that point, and have also started to
