This is really an intro for two, myself and my husband Tom. My husband and soul mate Tom and I live with our boys in about 17 acres of forest where we are building a sustainable home and hope to create an ecovillage and spiritual center.
I'm Nanci, and I've been actively on a Celtic Eclectic Pagan path for about 19 years now. My gifts lie in wordcraft, elemental earth and water magics, moon magics, meditation and mysteries, and fae folk. I am also very much a kitchen witch and cook up both ritual/special events and everyday food imbued with spirit and energy. I have had a profound interest in religious, cultural and historical study. I am a writer, poet, bibliophile, student of herbs, and passionate lover of nature. I am also a mother, homeschooling two very busy boys currently ages 9 and 10, and working on adopting two more children.
Tom's path has been parallel to my own in Celtic Paganism, yet individual to his own gifts and calling. He has been actively Pagan for about 10 years. He is a mathematically and kinesthetically gifted, working with sacred geometry, sun, earth and stone, and fire magics, and animism. He is a Mechanical Engineer and gifted carpenter, stone mason, plumber, eletrician, all around builder. He is a strong and quietly self confident and capable man, gentle, loving and a wonderful dad, with a decidedly goofy sense of humor.
We have been exploring Druidry for a time now, both feeling called to it. So now, even though we are building our house this summer, the time was right to take the plunge and we are planning to take the OBOD and ADOA courses concurrently, in addition to our own self study. We have begun with The 21 Lessons of Merlyn, and will move on from there. I often read aloud, as I am gifted in oration and storytelling and Tom works best with audio rather than text, and we discuss much together. We are looking forward to recieving our first OBOD gwersi with text and audio.
Tom and I are ritual as well as study partners and are active in our local Pagan community, where we also draw most of ours and our children's friends.
We both look forward to learning much here.
