  • Samhain Approaching

    October 16, 2018 by

    As I sit here, writing this, the rain taps at the window, the wind howling down the street, carrying with it the scent of winter and the first of the autumn leaves. The sky is fast moving and furious – low dark grey clouds set amidst a backdrop of pure white/grey.  The central heating has… Read more

  • What Do We Hope to Build?

    September 27, 2018 by

    Where do I see Paganism in 50 years’ time? Hopefully, diverse, shifting, changing, evolving, questioning itself and not getting too comfortable. I do not see the current navel-gazing we do, as individuals and collectively, as any kind of bad thing. Doubt keeps us on our toes. The need to explain and justify ourselves stops us… Read more

  • Summer Solstice and Ways to Celebrate

    June 15, 2018 by

    June 21 – June 22 Also called Alban Hefin or Midsummer in Welsh which means “the light of summer”. History: The summer solstice is a very ancient and special time when the sun is at it’s peak and again, likely one of the oldest celebrations on earth.

  • Meaningful Connection to the Land

    June 10, 2018 by

    As pagans we aspire to be connected to the Earth to live harmoniously via a spiritual relationship with deity as we see it – be it goddess and god or various polytheistic forms. This would seem to be an aspiration of virtually all pagans – Wiccans, Druids, Shamans, Witches etc. and pagans who wear no… Read more

  • The Luminous Plain: Images of the Ineffable

    June 8, 2018 by

    In previous posts, we discussed places within the earthly realms which were seen as portals to the Celtic Otherworld. We have also begun an initial discussion of the names and attributes of the inhabitants of the Otherworld. In this post we will explore the nature and appearance of the Otherworld realms, as they are described… Read more

  • Everything We Need to Know is Already Here

    June 5, 2018 by

    If some stranger from unknown lands, or indeed some alien entity, should arrive in the midst of Western civilisation today; they could be forgiven for believing that the purpose of human existence is to make and spend money. For the most part, human lives are dominated by the need to work, to generate money for… Read more

  • Seeing With Ancestral Eyes: Language and Celtic Worldview

    June 1, 2018 by

    Hello everyone, and the bright blessings of early summer to you all! Today I would like to talk about ways to deepen our practice of Celtic Paganism. One the many  important tools that people may choose to utilize when walking a Celtic path is learning one of the modern Celtic languages – Scottish Gaelic, modern… Read more

  • A Revolution of Consciousness

    May 30, 2018 by

    We live in exciting times, dangerous, changing and challenging times but exciting none-the-less. It’s hard to believe that around 70 years ago it was illegal to be a magical practitioner in the UK (30 years ago in Ireland!) and now Druidry, Wicca and all manner of esoteric arts have blossomed in a way that would… Read more

  • Moving Towards a New Reality

    May 25, 2018 by

    As a child I instinctively rejected the way I saw the world going, in fact I remember arguing with my parents around the age of 11 or 12 about what life is meant to be about.  I was rather dismissive I suppose of those that have laboured for an average car, average house and all… Read more

  • The Ever Changing Faces of The Gods

    May 20, 2018 by

    Over the last thousand years or so there have been huge changes in religion – most notably the one god coming to replace the many – the Judeo-Christian god Yahweh, who has swept through the world at the end of a conquering sword or a gun. However, as with all things in life, change eventually… Read more

  • Ancient Celtic Music – Research and Restoration

    May 18, 2018 by

    For many people, the term ‘Celtic music’ conjures up images of foot-stomping fiddle music, skirling bagpipes, or ethereal vocals floating over a bed of synthesizers. All of these genres are evocative and have many fans around the world – and for good reason: the music is wonderful, quite diverse, and appeals to our senses on… Read more
