We have decided to cancel classes for the summer, since people are traveling and other activities are happening. However, we will probably get together to do a workshop or two, and of course, we have our Lughnasadh Ritual coming up the first weekend in August. Stay posted for more information about that.

We had a lovely Summer Solstice ritual with a great number of people attending. I was surprised because it unexpectedly started raining in the afternoon. We ended up having the ceremony in the Chapel at Unity, which worked out quite well. Everyone was moved by the ceremony and we had a wonderful time socializing after with snacks that we shared.
We are finalizing our plans to visit the British Isles. We will be leaving Phoenix on October 7th, and returning on the evening of October 18th. It’s a whirlwind trip but we will have a chance to visit many sites.
It’s going to be an ambitious and fun trip…. Stonehenge, Tintagel Castle, Merlin’s Cave, Glastonbury, Avebury, Newgrange, Hill of Tara, Bridghe’s Well in Kildare, CnocAine, Cliffs of Moher, Edinburgh Castle, Rosslyn Chapel, train back to London. We are all so excited!
If you would like to join us, there is still time. Please contact Linda Mae by using the Contact Us tab if you are interested in knowing more.
The plan is that this, or some portions thereof, will be tours that we will be doing on a regular basis.
We continue to develop the business side of our organization. Recently Druids of the Light has been approved as an official non-profit for Amazon Smile. What this means is that you can choose Druids of the Light as the organization that you would like to support with a portion of your sales. Just click on the link below.
Step by step, we are getting our ducks in a row. The site is coming along, and our ongoing classes continue to follow our Initiate’s study program. We now have a Facebook page, and that’s where people can find out about our events, both ongoing and otherwise.
We have some wonderful things coming up, including a possible Summer Solstice Retreat Campout. Stay tuned as we develop this.
We are also planning a trip to the British Isles to visit some of the sacred sites in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. This will not be a tour, but more of a casual trip, meant to see the country and get the lay of the land. In the future, we may be developing regular tours.
We are also currently working on having an Amazon Smile account so that portions of people’s purchases can help us to raise some funds for our future endeavors.
We are embarking on an exciting adventure! And there is more news to come!
As we grow this organization, it is really fun to reach certain goals. The first one was, of course, when I heard we are an official spiritual non-profit druid organization back in November. The second one happened just this past week, wherein I now have a logo for Druids of the Light. This is really exciting – makes it all feel so much more official! Even more so than the website does.
So, here it is in all of its glory!
This month I “unexpectedly” attended Pantheacon. I say unexpectedly, because up until about 10 days before, I hadn’t planned on attending. But as things would have it, a friend called me, asked if I was going, and after checking out flights, etc., it all seemed to just fall into place. So, there I was, just a bit over a week ago, in San Jose, registering for Pantheacon. I am SO happy I went, for SO many reasons. One reason is because I got to hang out with my Druid friends from some of the organizations I have participated with in the past. AND, when I told them about Druids of the Light, I felt acceptance for my path, which was really great! In addition, next year, we are collaborating with the several Druid groups to have a greater presence, and I am part of that collaboration. That is so awesome!
I also got to attend two of the talks given by Orion Foxwood, and again, as has been true in the past, I was so impressed by what I heard. In fact, by the end of his Friday talk, I was in tears, as I realized that we have the same mission, but in our own way. I also attended his Monday talk with also confirmed our spirit alliance. I am very much hoping we can do some collaboration in the future, but even if that doesn’t happen, it feels so good to find kindred spirits like this. In fact, I have included some of his teachings in the Clergy training offered by Druids of the Light, as I feel it is that important!
So… be open to listening to the beings guiding our lives…. one never knows what can come out of that moment. I am SO grateful that I listened and followed through.
