Greetings All

If anyone is visiting the Isle of Wight (a small and beautiful Island off the South Coast of England), planning to move here or already live here (or even on the South Coast - allowing that ferry prices are more than a bit pricey!), you can be sure of a warm welcome in the Isle of Wight Druid Grove. Although not an OBOD Grove, we are a large and growing Grove (recently featured on the Travel Channel 'Soul Seeker' series :o ) and have members including myself who are OBOD. Our Grove is an 'open' Grove and we welcome people of all beliefs. We celebrate the Eight festivals at the Longstone (a Standing Stone which has long been a meeting place and sacred site). There is also a monthly Pagan Federation Moot (in Newport) and we hold monthly teaching gatherings in the forests and woods on our beautiful Isle.

You will find details of our gatherings and activities on our website www.wightdruids.com or message me here.

Solstice Blessings

You might try contacting Rufus Brock Maychild who probably knows of other Druids in your area. He is listed as a Priest/Celebrant on the public part of the Druid Network’s website http://druidnetwork.org/en/celebrants/list and is from near Carmarthen.

Thank you :)

I do know Rufus, we meet up from time to time at different events... but he's not what I would call local, although he has offered to meet me half way... :) but thanks again, anyway :) Just thought I'd "test the waters" in case I'm missing somebody under my own nose, coz you never know!

Hi Spirit Fox, there is an OBOD grove in your area. The Can Y Gwynt grove. To get in touch, try sending Astrocelt a private message.

Toronto is the city of trees. Are their any druids living in the GTA? (Greater Toronto Area)
I use to run a Seedgroup in Toronto, but I had to fold it about 4 years ago because of lack of interest. Toronto is primarily wicca-land.
I went to a moot one time; everyone was nice, but yes, it felt very wiccan and that's not my thing. But I assumed that there would other kinds of groups in a city this size. So there's nothing around here? :(

How about Mississauga? or Kitchener-Waterloo? Maybe Cambridge?

Interested in forming a seed group? Let's meet up for a coffee and a chat!

Hi Solar Centaur, sorry for the late reply.

There is a London seed group, Tamesis. I've never actually got to any of their events, but their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/groups/tamesisgrove/?fref=ts

does anyone know if there are any groups within, say, 10 miles of Frome in Somerset. Or any there any OBODies out there in the area who would fancy meeting up to discuss the possibility of starting a Seedgroup?

For those looking for 'public' OBOD or other order Druid groups in North America, try using this map: http://danaan.net/druidry/druid-groups-map/

If there are groups I am missing (and that have a presence on the internet), let me know and I will add it to the map.

Blessings,

Dana

I am visiting Ireland, Dublin, Cork & Belfast next week and would welcome advice on getting to some ancient spaces; visiting Tara is important to me, and perhaps a place in each of the others. What do people recommend and what is the best way to get from Dublin port to Tara, and Cavan, if there is time afterwards?
Any advice much appreciated.
