Welcome Bheith to our family...hope you enjoy your stay, and find enlightenment. I'd be curious to hear how you define yourself being a descendant of the Gods. ..........Seancha

I'm not a decendant of the gods lol...my family is decendant of the humans that were part of the myth of the Tuatha de Danaan.

My decendants were linked back to the early kings, who had been named from the Tuatha de Danaan, but seeing as the Tuatha were immortal and no longer physically inhabit the lands of Ireland, but instead live in another plane, hidden in the hills I in no way can make a clain to be directly decendant, just linked by name alone :)

The myth has always astounded me and just knowing that the name comes from the people of Danu is enough to make me curious.

Sorry if it seemed I was claiming "godness" lol...I'm just a normal guy.

am I supposed to introduce myself here, too? :shrug:
I am Kelly Adara (Warrior woman from the ford at the oak tree)
I'm 34 (how did that happen?), married with 2 kids. My husband is in the Air Force which actually causes alot of problems for me. How can I be part of a spiritual path that is rooted in the earth when I feel like my life is the travel channel?
I have yet to be at home anywhere. But maybe this place can be a virtual home, yes?

Greetings!

I thought I had introduced myself before, but I guess not.

My name is Andrea and I am 35. I have been studying Druidry for about a year and a half now. We moved from Valdosta, GA to Columbia, SC in June (my DH is in the Air Force so we move frequently), but I am originally from Southern California. We have 3 kids, ages 14, 10, and 9.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Looking forward to getting to know you all better!

Greetings all. I know that my choice of nicknames may be considered a bit arrogant, but the name 'Merlin' has been a real life nickname of mine for many years, for reasons outside my druidic beliefs.

I am 33, and live in Northwest Arkansas, a spot that has many resemblances to Erin, in its rolling green fields and misty mornings. I've been a christian nearly all my life, and still retain certain messianic beliefs, but on the whole have totally converted to.... something. I think druidism... everything I've seen so far fits me so well... its like I always knew it.

I've not had any formal training, and am not as yet undergoing the Bard's course, though I am somewhat interested in it. My chief concern now is that I've been sensing a strong surge in the veil... like the Otherworld is just itching to get here... and it's more than proximity to Saoin that I am feeling. I've spent so much time ignoring my heritage and power, for fear of my soul. Now, I fear for my soul if I do not 'catch up', as it were.
