Sophian Druidry course

Well, I’m taking the plunge and offering a short course in Sophian Druidry, to be held here in Saskatoon at the Refinery. The course will go from 10am to 3pm on Saturday May 12. You can find further details and registration information at http://www.stjamesrefinery.org/sophian-druidry-1

A friend recently asked me what “Sophian druidry” is … and I told him “Yeah, it has been a bit of a challenge, combining Christianity with druidry. I think what it is really about is an Earth-friendly, woman-friendly form of Christianity, attentive to the Celtic roots of the 5th-8th Century (when druidry and Christianity were engaged with each other in Scotland Ireland and Wales). Certainly, I think a lot of contemporary pagan druids would not be happy with the way I’ve blended traditions, and nor would a number of conservative Christians. But I take heart from the number of people who seem to resonate with these ideas, and also from the fact that Saint Columba of Ireland once referred to Jesus Christ as ‘my chief Druid’.”

So if you’re in the Saskatoon area, feel free to come check out the workshop!
