25 April -2 May - White Horse Beltane Camp. Another camp at Wildways where the spring flowers will be adorning the woods.

25-27 April - Mythic Imagination weekend, Double Vision - Parallel roads, opposing principles, divergent worlds, twin perspectives... this Mythic Imagination weekend explores various versions of what William Blake termed 'double vision'. Details of the talks and trails are at here

For this weekend we welcome the poet James Harpur – check him out here. He will focus on one of the great poets of the twentieth century, T.S. Eliot, whose crowning achievement was The Four Quartets, four poems laden with philosophy, spirituality and mythic resonance, centred around four actual places. James will lead an exploration into the text of one of them, East Coker. Our Sunday trail will include an expedition to the village itself (and other manifestations of the anima mundi en route) offering an opportunity to experience the same spirit of place which inspired Eliot. Booking is now open, on the website or by cheque. Numbers are limited to twelve, so please book early if you wish to be sure of a place. Email for more information, or phone Merrily on 01300 320064. Everyone is welcome, and we greatly look forward to showing you some of the hidden treasures of Dorset at its springtime best!

13 – 18 May -  ‘SWEET AWEN AS FROM THE CAULDRON OF CERIDWEN’ - A DRUID RETREAT at CAE MABON IN SNOWDONIA
We invite you to join us in a unique retreat experience in the magical landscape of Snowdonia in Wales designed to help you  access the deep wellsprings of creativity and healing through which Awen flows.
Cae Mabon is set in an oak forest glade and centered on a Celtic Roundhouse - a collection of unique and beautiful structures set in woodland facing the mountains with lake Llyn Padarn in the valley below. To the west is Ynys Mon (the island of Anglesey), the heartland of the Druids in ancient times. To the east is Dinas Emrys, where dragons are said to have risen from the ground and where the young Merlin spoke his first great prophecy.
Cae Mabon is deep in old Druid country. Some say Taliesin is her guardian spirit. Its cob cottage, straw bale hogan, cedar cabin and barn are situated amongst lush greenery and woodland, and the Afon Fachwen (‘little white river’) flows from Elidir near the thatched round house and cedar hot tub. During our retreat there will be storytelling, music-making, meditation and ritual. We will visit Dinas Emrys, celebrate the time of the May full moon, and open to the Spirit of Druidry and the land.  
The workshop will be led by Philip Carr-Gomm, Chief of The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids and author of over a dozen books on spirituality, and Penny Billington, editor of Druid journal Touchstone and author of The Path of Druidry: Walking the Ancient Green Way. Honorary Bards ZZ Birmingham and Eric Maddern will entertain us with music and storytelling.
The cost of the retreat is £340 inclusive of all meals (vegetarian & delicious). All accommodation is sharing in cabins - see www.caemabon.co.uk for pictures. A limited number of tent spaces exist if you want to camp but there is no reduction in cost.

22 May - A ‘Forest Church’ One day workshop. The Forest Church doesn’t travel far before it crosses boundaries into new territory for many people – deep into nature connection and deep into dialogue with earth spiritualities such as Druidry and Paganism. This fairly intensive (but fun and friendly) one day workshop is for anyone new to these ideas who want to ask questions and gain some confidence.
    •    What does it mean to be in dialogue with nature?
    •    How is it possible to hold rituals where Christians and Pagans are together?
    •    What might worship look like caught up together with nature?
    •    And how can Christians celebrate the 8 fold celtic festivals?
Facilitators: Alison Eve facilitates Ancient Arden Forest Church, where she hopes to, ‘surf the boundaries between Christianity and Paganism, and re-discovering the immanent God as Mother and Father.’ And Bruce Stanley facilitates Mid Wales Forest Church, where his focus is on ‘nature connection as a foundation, with an underlying ethic towards living lightly’. The workshop will run from 10 to 5pm within the grounds and chapel of Trinity College Bristol and it will cost £65 to attend with an optional 2 course lunch provided by the college.

26-29 June - Germany, Franken - Philip Carr-Gomm with Reinhard Winkler and Malou Eberspächer. Psychology, Magic and the Spiritual Path – Exploring Psychosynthesis as a Way of Personal Development & Healing. Psychosynthesis is a psychology that includes an understanding of the human being as a soul. This psycho-spiritual approach to the human being can be of great value to us, whatever spiritual path we tread. It helps us integrate different aspects of ourselves, explore our shadows, and constructively work with impulses we might receive from both the sub-conscious and the super-conscious. Developed in the 1960s by the Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli, Psychosynthesis includes insights from many approaches, including the Jungian, and has had a seminal influence on the development of Humanistic and Transpersonal psychology.
In this workshop we will explore the central concepts and methods of Psychosynthesis using specific experiential techniques to get an inside working knowledge of Psychosynthesis that we can apply to our own lives and our own spiritual path. Magic and Psychology fused! That is the goal of this workshop. Psychological insight without the life-giving waters of the Perennial Wisdom Traditions is dry. Working with magic without the balance of psychological understanding can lead to delusion, superstition, a walking further away from self-knowledge. Our work during our time together will be to combine the best of modern psychology with the techniques of magic to generate insight and creativity - a clearing of blockages and perhaps the beginning of a new phase in our lives. To do this we will work with Psychosynthesis. Into the cauldron of our workshop we will bring song, movement, ritual and mask-making, as well as excellent food, good company and the magic of community. We very much look forward to working with everyone!
If you are interested in our workshop, sign up soon with us. The number of participants is limited. Seminar fee: 330 € - Accommodation and meals: 156 - €. Starts 6pm Thursday and ends 3pm Sunday. The workshop fee is to be paid on application; the cost of accommodation and meals are to be paid at the workshop in cash. Contact: 09532/981060  or email.

17 - 21 Sept - CELEBRATE! A five day immersion in the arts of celebrancy for OBOD members and friends who want to explore working with rites of passage – either in a professional role or simply for themselves and close friends and relatives. In this year of celebration of the Golden Anniversary of the Order, it seems fitting that we should turn our attention to celebration as a natural and spiritual response to the fundamental turning-points in life. During five days in the magical setting of Earthspirit in Compton Dundon near Glastonbury, we will work with ways in which we can create and hold rites of naming, weddings, handfastings, and funerals.
Lying between the two hills of Dundon Beacon and Lollover in Somerset, Earthspirit is just on the edge of the small village of Compton Dundon, a few miles south of Glastonbury. The Earthspirit Centre is warm and comfortable, and in addition to extensive gardens that include an Ogham copse, there is a large indoor cedarwood hot-tub.
This time together is designed for both experienced celebrants and for those who are just beginning to consider celebrancy as an avenue of service. We will receive advice from, and listen to the experience of trained ‘mainstream’ celebrants in established traditions, from professional ‘alternative’ celebrants, and from  members of the Order who offer their services as celebrants to their local community. We’ll share our own stories and learn ways in which we can craft rites that respond to the needs of people who may be ‘spiritual’ but who hold no special religious affiliation, as well as for those who want a specifically Druid ritual. Contributors include Caitlin Matthews, Peter Owen-Jones, Mark Townsend and Philip Carr-Gomm. The cost of the workshop is £363 inclusive of all meals (vegetarian & delicious). Accommodation is sharing – see http://www.earthspirit-centre.co.uk. £60 Single Room Supplement. A limited number of campervan/tent spaces exist but there is no reduction in cost. To make a reservation, send £100 deposit via paypal to office@druidry.org (write “Celebrate deposit” and your postal address in message field) or send a cheque for £100 deposit made out to OBOD together with a note of your name, address, telephone number and email to: Celebrate, OBOD, PO Box 1333, Lewes, East Sussex BN7 1DX or for info email: events@druidry.org
