Hi my name is St.John (pron. sin-jun, hist. old English name)

I'm 41 :old: and am married with four children. I am returning to Druidry after a holiday of ... well lets just say a long time. I was studying the Ovate grade and I guess I must have walked into a tree or something. I'm back and currently re-reading the Bardic grade.

I live in Wolverhampton.

Regards
Singe

Hello: My name is Bruce I'm 58, I live in the Central Sierra Nevada's, 7 miles from Yosemite National Park on Turtle Island. Though somewhat new to Druidry (about 1 year), I am well acquainted with Mother Earth (Gaia), having grown up in the Mountain's most of my life.

My wife and I recently joined an OBOD seed group fifty miles to the South West of us, a wonderful group of Druids, who have welcomed us with open arms. We are quite eager to learn and live the Druid lifestyle. We live on a large peace of land and have offered it to the seed group for a grove, as we are blessed by many Oaks, Pines, Cedars, Natural Wildlife, even a river run's through the property.

Thank you for having us,

Bright Blessings - Bruce
AKA, BlueHeron

<stepping out from the quiet corner>: Hello everyone, I'm Paganlady, from Texas. This board was intriguing, so I signed up, and here I am.

I did manage to stumble upon the Eisteddfod contest and even posted a entry: looks like I found the contest just in time. :)

Anyway, it's good to "meet" all of you.

Bright blessings, Paganlady

Well I am the wrong side of fifty. :old:
Have been a pagan for 7/8 years but over the last three have found the need to define what I am with out putting myself to much in a box.

Some of you will already know me (hi) :tiphat: other I am looking forward to meeting :warm: and getting to know you :gulp: .

Blessings and Merry Met

Good Afternoon to All -

I have been reading through some of the other introductions and am awed by the diversity demonstrated on this board alone. COOL! :) I just received my second packet and received the instruction to this board. A bit about myself,

I live in the Pacific Northwest, in Seattle, Washington. Usually its a balmy 70 to 80 degrees but we are in the middle of a heat wave and are breaking records. Today is simply the beginning. If you see my typing melting towards the bottom of the page, or there are inexplicable spelling errors - my appologies. I am going to blame it on the heat. I have been an initated BDO Bard since 2000/ 2001. I have regularly participated at local Gorsedds, and was chosen this year to hold the office of Goddess Guardian. I am a composer,performer,musician and founded a band shortly after my initiation. Its called the Bards of the Koad. You can check out our music at http://www.bardsofthekoaf.com. I also have a solo album out and am working on my second. You can hear snippets of that on my myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/reohadbeginnings .

I swear I'm not an egomaniac providing all these web addresses. But to get to know me, you should know my music. :)

I have worked with and studied herbs but have so much more to learn. I have also delved into shamanism in my path and regularly use North American Native shamanistic techniques that I have been taught or picked up through the years. I work with tarot, runes, douwsing (SP?? - arg - the heat), and pendulums but have not worked much with the Ogham runes so am excited to learn about those. Our local Gorsedd, THe Bards of Caer Pugetia has a magazine called "The Sound". I am an editor for that - so seeking out interesting articles, making sure I am providing current meaningful content and transcribing (thanks to my wonderful fantastic patient talented husband) original music to be placed in the Eisteddfod section of the magazine.

I keep busy definately but am looking forward to taking more 'me' time to focus on this course, and focus on another aspect of my own spiritiality and growth. So - HELLO ALL!

Walk in Beauty -
Paula

*sneaks back in*

Hello.. I am back and I do feel bad about not being here for such a long time. There were so many things changing in my life that I had to sort out.

I am still me, Milla, from Durham, now 29 years old. Hope I am still welcome here :oops: .

Hello everybody,
my name is Thomas and I am coming from Germany, but now live in Sweden. First of all sorry for my English, but I am learning now Swedish very intensively so sometimes I mix up languages.
I joined the bardic course at the end of 2006 but just for myself because I walked my path alone most all of the time.
But now I have the feeling to ask for the admission to the ovate course quite soon and that it is time for me to join the community.
About me: I am 34 years old, father of two kids and married. We call ourselves a pagan family, but my wife follows her own way. Like most of all other members I walked different paths to finally come here and one of the most important ways for me beside the druidry is shamanism. My nickname above is given to me in a shamanic ritual. In the last few years I concentrate myself to self-development in nature and wilderness and as a result I now try to establish myself giving courses in the Swedish wilderness.
I now am stopping. If you are interested in more, feel free to contact me, ask via board or visit my homepage. I will post it in the marketplace, because it’s somehow commercial.
In the end I am searching for contacts in Sweden and Norway!
Blessings to all of you.
Tom

Hi all, I'm new here. :hiya: I just turned 26 years old recently and I'm from Nevada. Here's some background info on my spiritual path so far. When I was younger I was a Wiccan for a few years (and I must say I still love a lot of things about Wicca, but I always felt I was missing something), so a few years later now I find myself more drawn to Catholicism. I am hoping to blend Druidism with Christian beliefs in a complementary way. And I'm hoping this board will help me to find my path. :)

Thanks for reading about my journey.

Welcome and willkommen Thomas, nice to see a fellow German! :hiya:
Hej Alchemilla, thank´s a lot for the welcome.
I am more like an exile German..... somehow stranger in a strange land. But the region we now live in is sooo wild and beautiful...
