I received my first Druidic Initiation almost 30 years ago in an intensive month long ritual and testing. I have walked the Path ever since and had the good fortune of wise, vigilant, and at times, ruthless teachers. I have studied many techniques, engaged in various intensive practices, spent extended periods in the wilderness. Now I teach energy cultivation, natural earth magic and self awareness.
Much of what we learn of Western social dogma/behavior can be a hindrance in understanding the Way, which is elusive and subtle like a twilight breeze. It is necessary to both learn and unlearn, to form new leaves in spring, and drop old ones off in autumn. There is a vast world of mystery and magic within and behind the veneer of intellect and social conditioning. Today, the intellect has become distorted and ingrown... Unable to see clearly, pushed and pulled by conflicting ideas and conditioned behaviors, scattered and confused. The intellect has reached a dead end and a new approach is needed. To remain humble, is to remain open, not knowing, receptive to new seeing and to being shaped anew by the wise hands of Life.
The voices of the earth, the trees, the plants, animals and the wise ones are calling on people to open their ears and eyes, to rediscover their living connection and place in the broader community of nature, to free themselves from the insanity gripping the society and learn, to grow and flower into warriors of the spirit. The challenge of our times is total.
I am writing this to reach young people who have some empathic talent and who are passionate to learn about inner wisdom, earth magic and nature spirits, who are humble and love trees, animals, growing plants and wild places. Anyone who has a sincere interest to learn and study is welcome to ask questions or seek teaching. I am also willing to take an apprentice or two.
I currently live and teach on some land in Monmouth Oregon. We (a couple friends and I) have leased 22 acres and currently have 7-8 under cultivation. We are growing about 60 types of medicinal plants for harvest. We are also growing staple foods such as millet, quinoa, pinto and black beans, lentils, oil seed sunflowers, flax and buckwheat. And of course numerous vegetables so there is yummy stuff to eat. Volunteers come to learn about farming, living on the land, making medicine and so on. We can offer food and accommodations. It is a unique opportunity and approach for those interested.
