INTRoDucTIONS: How old are you and where do you live...? Con

Postby wolfguy » 02 Jan 2008, 20:41

hello all I'm 27 and kind of new to druidsm, so I would like to introduce myself.
my is dean and I live in Aldershot ( any one else live in aldershot please let me know as i like to join a grove or someone to leard from ) I've been interested in druidsm and the paranormal for many years.
I have read a few books about druidry and however hard tried to pull away and keep being drawn back to it. first started out on wicca but it didn't appeal to me something was missing. then I found about druidsm the thing I've always wanted, a steep learning curve as well as a love of nature and the planet (im a big animal lover)
so I finally decided to take the plunge and have now signed up for the audio course I'm looking forward from the first lot come through the post.
and another thing has brought me on to his path as I've had some paranormal and psychic experiences in the past and now more than ever,.
I would love to meet you all face-to-face and try to learn from each other ,more likely me learn from you all.
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

I've been lurking around here for about a month now and thought it was time to introduce myself.

I'm 28 years old, married, and live in rural Canada. I have four children; my daughter is 8, and my sons 5, 4 and almost 2. I'm a stay at home mom and am homeschooling our children.

I am new to druidry and have just begun the gwersi for the bardic grade.

Looking forward to becoming a part of this board!

Hi everyone

I am new to the board as a member but I have been hovering around as a guest for a while. I'm 28 years old and am generally a happy person - I got married last year to a wonderful man and we share our lives with a gorgeous little dog. I'm not exactly doing my dream job, but then, how many people are??!!

I've been reading books on Druidry for as long as I knew they were out there, and I've been instinctively interested in sacred sites and earth mysteries my whole life. I still haven't ordered the introductory OBOD package as I feel this is a step I'm not ready to take as yet. Maybe signing up for the message board is the first step?

Have a lovely day,
Seren

Greetings one and all.

I am Tony, 25 years old and from the Newcastle area in the North-East of England. Currently working in retail but i am using 2008 as a year for finding my true path, awaiting the start of my IT course which will hopefully lead to a career i will enjoy. Unfortunately i do not have any pets, something i would very much like; i think that will need to wait till i have my own box to live in.

I have been interested in paganism, wicca etc for some time (atleast 5 years) and have done a fair amount of reading on their history and practices; though never participated myself as none of them felt right from what i had learned; and due to a fair amount of time travelling and other commitments i have had a severe lack of time to tread anywhere seriously and find a path.

I have only recently found my way here, though i am already awaiting the brown packages to arrive that i have read so much about. Decided to go for the audio and text version so that i can work through with the audio and use the text as support material and later reference. It sounds like it will be a magical experience and look forward to receiving the first instalment.

*Wonders if there is any space left around this what must be crowded fire by now* :warm: Sure i will catch you all elsewhere on the boards. Till then, stay safe.

Binky / Tony

Howdy folks,

I received the audio Bardic course thingy yesterday! Hooray :yay:
Here's a little info about me: I live in the northwest of England. I've practiced a variety of spiritual paths - native american shamanism, celtic shamanism, zen (and other forms of buddhism), taoism, quakerism, nondualism in some of its many forms ("nondualism in some of its many forms"? Sounds a little paradoxical :shrug: ) I'm eager to dive into druidry, and to reconnect with life. Let the journey continue.

Glad to meet you all!

Twilight

Hello, I'm Infinity and I'm 26, I live on the Wirral in the North West of England. I stumbled across Druidry last year, and realised that the Druidic path correlated to my own individual spiritual beliefs, that I had thought I was alone in. I suffered through all the Druidic festivals not having anyone to share them with or knowing quite what rituals to perform :-( until an Amazon search on druidry lead me to Phillip Carr Gomm's books and OBOD :yay: and I signed up for the course straight away.
I initiated myself last night and am now a fully fledged Bard :grin:

I am Irish by ancestry, and have a strong affinity with things Celtic, I look forward to getting deeper and deeper into the course as it goes on, and to meeting you all on the boards.


Love and blessings,

Infinity
