Merry Meet! /|\
I’m a Canadian Bard :D That’s the best way to put it.
Poetry and love for nature has always paved my path to the spiritual life. I’m about 3 years in with a Native Shaman tradition group holding healing circles on Tuesday nights. This is my 1st year since getting into the OBOD Druid tradition and will be my 1st week here joining ElvenWorld.
The spiritual life for me is around seeing Spirit in Nature within Creator’s many forms. I really believe that music and mythology creates a lot of healing throughout our lessons in life here at Earth School as I’d describe it. On how I got into this > to say it began with books; the many spiritual groups I’ve come to know began at a backroom bookstore.
I’ve traveled though many great paths of books including Joseph Campbell’s myths, the Dali Lama’s wisdom, Gabrielle Roth’s Shamanic dance, Osho’s philosophies, and Silver RavenWolf’s books of Wicca. The wise ones that got me going on the Druid path include Isaac Bonewits, Philip Carr-Gomm, and the wonderful beautiful music of Damh The Bard.
The Cauldron Born by Damh The Bard > One song that really sums up the love and honoured privilege we have to communicate with the Elven and Faerie Realms. In learning the creative art of soul journey meditation, animals guides and faerie messages are some of the things I work with > and as a part of a meditation group we put out the good healing energy for those who need it.
I’m still a bit new to Celtic Mythology and get most of the goods from podcasts like Druidcast with its great music and interviews. I’m looking forward to getting to know myths / folklore from different traditions with many chats to come here. Also a big Wheel of the Year celebrator, I write poetry to share along with a few meditations on connecting to the moon energy.
I’m very glad to be here and will be checking in often, posting my thoughts, bardic poetry and a few healing prayers in times of need. Thanks to TE Locke and all at ElvenWorld / Faerieworlds making this site possible for connecting with new fellows :)
Bright Blessings /|\
