Rites of Passage and the Four Treasures of the Tuatha De Danaan

by Rosemary Gibson

The following was drawn together from meditation on the Four Treasures of the Tuatha De Danaan inspired by events at the 1998 UK Lughnasadh Camp and by conversation with other Druids on Rites of Passage, which set bells ringing in my head on a subject I have considered for some time.

More Druidic Squirrels

by Earl Conroy

There are today lots and lots of social and cultural problems that need solving but there appear to be two crucial paradigms that particularly attract my attention. I’d like to share them with you all. First a Bardic poem written by Anghus in 1997 ‘Mists and the Stone’,

I have seen a land that is green
Far away where many dreams have been
I have known a land that is home
All but lost in the Mists and Stone.

Reincarnation and Karma

by Dr Renata Bartoli 

It's not possible to give a date when the concept of reincarnation first appeared among human beliefs because it seems to be as old as humankind itself and it is present in cultures all over the world.

Its first manifestation seems to be in Shamanism. From it the belief in rebirth has passed into all major religions that have developed on earth, accompanying and influencing them throughout their evolution.

Them and Us

by Dr Renata Bartoli

The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any
more than black people were made for whites or women for men. ~ Alice Walker

A Mythic History of Ogham

by Judith Dillon

There exists an occult and sacred alphabet which the Hebrews attributed to Enoch, the Egyptians to Thoth or Mercurius Trismegistus, the Greeks to Cadmus and Palamedes. This alphabet, which was known to the Pythagoreans, is composed of absolute ideas attached to signs and numbers. - Eliphas Levi, La Clef des Grands Mysteres, (1896)
