Group Overview: Our Mission
In the timeless spirit of Druidry, it is our calling
To Worship the Holy, in all its manifestations
To Care for the Creation, as its stewards and friends
To Unite the Peoples, in the wonder of their infinite diversity
To Honour the Past, and all it has to teach
To Live the present, in its richness of experience
To Envision the Future, with its limitless possibilities
Like a beautiful tapestry, we blend together all non-harmful paths to create a new path of harmony, health and growth. We search for that which brings us together, rather than for that which separates us. We affirm that the path of balance and coalescence is a good, valid and useful road to walk – and we keep each other company on the way.
We recognize that on some level all things are one – and we also recognize that what we call Divine manifests itself in infinitely many ways. The hold lives within and without, and flows like waters that give us life.
Within our way we offer a lucid cosmological vision that is general enough to accommodate all non-harmful paths, yet defined enough to unite. When we come together, we worship in ways derived from traditions that are the legacy of our ancestors, leaving the interpretations of such traditions for each person to contemplate on their own. Our traditions bind us together, but they are neither static, nor hasty – rather, like a healthy tree, they continue to grow from the roots of our past to the light of the future wisdom.
We embrace wisdom in all of her forms and manifestations, and we encourage the pursuit of wisdom and the excellence contained therein – excellence of out-sight defined by scholarship, excellence of in-sight, defined by intuition.
We appoint ourselves the keepers and guardians of our planet Earth – for it befits children to honour their mother, and to care for her with love and reverence. We hold ourselves as kin to all of the Earth’s children.
In the way of the Ancients, we view ourselves as a Tribe – one people, united by ties of loyalty, honour and vision, united by love of each other, and the one thing that defines to us the best of all human endeavours – the pursuit of truth. Our Hearths are our families, and The People of Brigid is our Clan.
As a Tribe, these are the things we reject as being inimical to our path and to our very reason for existence.
The idea that any path known to humans may be the one and only true path in its entirety.
Any path that holds as it purpose harm to any thing.
Prejudgement of any sort – be it racial, sexual, spiritual or philosophical.
A Druid is a Seeker of Truth
In all places
In all times
In all ways
As a Sacred Oak is true
In its roots that reach deep into the Earth
In its trunk that spans the Worlds
In its branches that stretch to the Sky
So is a Druid true
In the Soul – The Keeper of Holiness
In the Body – the Celebrant of Creation
In the Mind – The Seeker of Wisdom
We believe that all things are of the Divine. Thus, we strive, to the best of our ability, to treat ourselves, and all with which we interact, accordingly.
In the Druidic way we honour the eight High Days (quarter and cross-quarter days) beginning with Samhain.
For ceremonial purposes each High Day may be celebrated upon either the legal date, the astronomical date, or upon a date within a fortnight thereof, mutually convenient to the participants of the particular celebration involved.
In additions, Tuatha de Brigid, a Druid Clan Hearths may honour other holidays associated with any religion that does not harm to any thing as its purpose
