We are a seed group in southern California affiliated with the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids and inclusive of members of the Ancient Order of Druids in America. We are currently open to new members; please see About Us for more information.
We gather to share the Seven Gifts of Druidry:
Philosophy~ emphasizing the sacredness of all life and our part in the great web of creation.
The Earth Year~ eight seasonal celebrations that attune us to the natural cycle, helping us structure our lives in a way that develops a sense of community with all living beings.
Healing~ practices that promote rejuvenation of body, mind, and spirit, using spiritual and physical methods in a holistic way to promote health and longevity.
Rites of Passage~ affirming life as a journey, helping us navigate the flowing river of change, with ritual for blessing and naming of children, marriage and hand-fasting, death, and other times of initiation.
Opening to Other Realities~ techniques for exploring states of consciousness, other realities, dreaming, and the Otherworld- connecting us to our guides, guardians, and deities- in a specifically Celtic and Druidic imagery and tradition.
Developing our Potential~ offering a path of self-development that encourages our creative potential, our psychic and intuitive abilities, and that fosters our intellectual and spiritual growth.
Magic~ teaching the art of bringing ideas into manifestation, of discovering and then nuturing our desires and work, and learning how to use the power of divine inspiration, known as Awen.
