Throughout July, Wisdom Keepers will host a series of workshops at 42 ACRES Shoreditch offering the extraordinary opportunity to encounter ancestral indigenous and Wisdom traditions from around the world first-hand in central London.
Wisdom Keepers: Singer, Shaman, Sage: Exploring the Way of the Druids with Philip Carr-Gomm, Leader of the Order of Bards Ovates & Druids
It’s as if—even in the confusion of 21st century living—you can glimpse footpaths in the forest that seem magical: the sight of a deer standing in a shaft of moonlight, the call of an owl that tells you the Old Ways are still alive, that the wisdom of the Druids can still be accessed even today, and that to follow these clues does not require you to abandon your reason or return to some primitive way of being in the world.
Druidry is seen today by many as a ‘green’ spirituality that includes members of many faiths, including Christian and Pagan. Druids today combine a knowledge of the old myths and stories of these lands, with an understanding of the power of certain animals and plants, trees and stones. We work with shamanic journeying, the power of word and music, of oracles and ritual to create new pathways for our soul, to expand our horizons and reawaken ourselves to the beauty of the Earth.
If you’d like to experience the work of the Druids, we invite you to this evening of exploration. We will explore the power of the land to heal us and help us towards wholeness, we’ll hear some of the old stories, work with the Druid Plant and Animal Oracles, and journey in inner vision to the realm where imagination meets some- thing other than our own mindscape—something deeper and more primal.
Arrivals: From 7.15pm (7.30pm start)
Location: 42 ACRES Shoreditch, 66 Leonard Street, EC2A 4LW
