Greetings, My name is Alexandra (sandie) and I am in my fifties and I live in the North West England UK but I originally come for the Highlands of Scotland. I have just started studying for the Bardic Course which I am enjoying immensely and I now feel that I have been suppressed for years and Druidism has given me sense of Freedom. Any members who live in the UK is it possible to give me information on the Groves and Seedling groups in the North West England as I would love to meet people with like-minded minds,

Blessings

Lassoscotland (Sandie)

Hello to All,
My name is Jazz, and I am delighted to be making my way through the first course (at my own slow pace!) and am looking forward to exploring this online community and getting to know some fellow pathwalkers. I am 53 years old, and live in coastal New England in the United States. I have found my way to Druidry via many paths over the years, including shamanic studies in Native American tradition, and am so very pleased now to be newly a part of an active Grove not too far from where I live. I cannot get to celebrations as often as I wish as I have some significant mobility and health issues (climbing through the woods is challenging to say the least, but the communal spiritual experience is worth the toll it takes on me physically when I'm able to manage it). I'm also finding a growing connection with other active pagans of different traditions in my community, some of whom are members of my Unitarian Universalist congregation. I feel grateful for the ability to participate in the OBAD Bardic Grade course as it is offering me a wonderful way to synthesize and expand my lifelong intuitive creation of personal spirituality. I'm smiling that I found some of my guides in the choices of smilies! :wolf: :hawk: :raven: :brnbear: :horse:

Greetings! My name is Janine and I'm 50 years old living with my beautiful family in Spruce Grove, Canada. I've recently begun the Bardic Grade, and I am really enjoying it thus far. I feel as though I'm rediscovering something that's been deeply hidden within me. Always there, just underneath conscious thought... new but deeply familiar. I look forward to my journey here and connecting with like-minded people. Blessings to you!

Hello,

My name is Rebecca, I am 46 years old, and live in North Texas. I have been a multi-religious person growing up, an agnostic as of late, and am just dipping my toes back into "religious" waters as I seek meaning in my later years. Druidry ties me to the earth and nature, which is where I have always found the deepest meanings. My life has been packed full, and I think there have been many lessons for my soul. My hope is to find peace and meaning, and a way to pass on some of my knowledge from lessons hard learned.

Peace.

Greetings, I'm Bump. I'm 47 and live in the NE of England. I have just started the Bardic grade which is very exciting for me as discovering that druidery is what I have been believing all these years, but not knowing about it, has been quite a discovery.

I love my cats and other pets. I'm particularly drawn to rocks, pebbles and stones and I plant small trees in my small garden.

Hi, I'm Runefang (corny I know, but I couldn't think what to put now I'm stuck with it), old enough to be uncomfortably conscious of my great age and impending decline :old: , and recently registered as a piggy-back member alongside my wife's membership as we follow the Bardic grade together.

As I begin to study about Druidism I am increasingly surprised at how many things that are important to the Druid Way are already present in my life, in my personal philosophy and in my spiritual path. It is quite exciting and yet I don't want to become too excited in case it all goes horribly wrong, I am a bit of a pessimist(a lot of one some might say).

I have absolutely no idea how to go about registering on here as a full Bardic member but it is early days yet and what little research I have done seems to indicate I do have at least until 1st November to sort it out. I need peace in my life and this looks to be a good first step along the way.
