Looking back on the last five years, it has been an incredible experience and a serious learning curve for me. Diving into the priesthood, holding ceremonies, handfastings, baby namings, funerals, and nature reserve blessings just to name a few, alongside the teaching has made it a very busy and very productive time. Writing books and articles as well as running my dance company has sometimes made it overwhelming, however I am so very glad to have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people.
This is a note to say that in 2014 I will be taking a step back from my external duties as a Druid priest in order to further my own studies, diving into deep Druidry, questing the awen. I will not be taking any bookings for ceremonial work nor taking on any students. I hope to write and release more books, blogs and articles for publication, as well as attend festivals and go on pilgrimage to various places across these blessed isles. I seek time in solitude for reflection and rejuvenation and I sincerely hope that you all will understand where it is that I am coming from.
If you have ceremonial or ritual work coming up that you require a celebrant for, please let me know and I can refer you to those priests with whom I have worked or have known and which are held in good steading in the community. It is with every intention that I return to my external priestly duties in the future.
I would like to thank you all so much for allowing me to be a part of your life and many, many blessings to you all!
May all our journeys be blessed; may we be the awen.
