Community Caravan & Druidry Today

September 11, 2020 @ 6:45 pm - 7:30 pm

What is Druidry and who are the Druids today? Druidry is essentially a nature-based spiritual path that includes love and reverence for nature, of philosophical enquiry, wisdom, creativity, and healing. There is an expression in  Irish, “Aontacht in Ilíocht” meaning Unity in Diversity. Our Order includes members from diverse backgrounds, nationalities, ethnic origins, creeds, gender, sexual orientation. One does not have to come from what is known as the Celtic lands or to have ancestral ties to these lands to become a Druid. There is no dogma, we have different voices, different perspectives, different worldviews, and we are all united through a love of nature. We understand that everything is in service, we are all connected to everything else.

A small group of Druids from different backgrounds will share their experiences and personal journeys of Druidry, the impact and influence it has on their lives, and the relevance of Druidry today.

Organizer:

Eimear is the Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD). With her late husband, Howard Campbell she founded the Kilkenny Druid Grove which hosts celebrations for all eight festivals in the Wheel of the Year. The ceremonies are attended by Druids and Pagans of all paths, as well as by people from all sections of their local community. The aim is to promote Druidry as a creative way of living in balance with the natural world. Eimear has private practice as a Counselling Psychologist and her interests in Druidry and psychology have led her to act as a Celebrant, helping people to design and enact meaningful rites of passage. She is licensed to perform legal weddings in the Republic of Ireland and can also offer non legal ceremonies. Eimear has a deep love of the ancient Irish tales and has a passion for storytelling. She brings the old tales to new audiences, and – while remaining faithful to the stories – often examines them from new perspectives, so that listeners experience them as fresh and relevant. She particularly enjoys showing people the sacred sites of Ireland and telling the ancient tales right where they happened.
