Druidry or Celtic Spirituality encompasses the tradition of the land. In the Killarney area, we honour this tradition and keep it alive. We are a Grove of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. This is the largest druid organisation in the world that unites and has educated about 25.000 druids worldwide.
We are Karen and Jan Tetteroo, druids of the Order. You can walk this spiritual path on your own but meeting with others to celebrate the festivals and share your spiritual journey can offer great support, introduce you to new friends and expand your horizons. The following information will help you understand what it involves if you join the Grove.
What is a Druid Grove and how can you join?
As a Grove we regularly meet together giving members the opportunity to meet and share knowledge and ideas together, to discuss Druidry and topics of mutual interest. We will organise other activities such as retreats, workshops and camps. To be a member of the Grove you don’t need to be a druid yourself or take a course at OBOD. Showing interest and have the willingness to explore and deepen your Celtic Spiritual path is rewarding in itself.
For more information and to sign up you can contact us through Facebook or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org . None of the activities are mandatory, though we expect some kind of commitment from members to take part at least a few times per year.What happens at Grove meetings?
The Grove encourages freedom, creativity and individual responsibility, and for this reason we do not advocate any specific or set format for a meeting. It really is up to the members of a group to decide how they wish to spend their time together.
In working out how you would like to spend the time, remember that you need focus and boundaries and freedom and creativity! Usually we have a combination of the following elements:
• Arriving, welcoming, stating the purpose of the meeting
• Tuning in
• Exchanging news and ideas
• Discussion and debate on a chosen subject
Grove meetings are normally at Jan and Karen’s place in Annagh More. Our aim is to organise 9 meetings per year.
