Cernunnos Shrine Part 1

The building of the Shrine to Cernunnos was started in the summer 2016.  But before that, we started raising money for it.  In the fall of 2015, we did an Indiegogo campaign that had 26 backers and raised $3435.

Re-weaving the Connection Every Day

A large part of the work at Druid College is teaching our apprentices how to re-weave the connection to the land each and every day. We cover a wide-range of topics in doing so, from conscious consumerism,  political and environmental activism, daily and seasonal ritual celebrations and more. Our focus from our last weekend was on daily connection, how we can bring everyday actions into our practice, to make the mundane sacred; indeed, to highlight the fact that there is no such thing as the mundane. It's only in our perception.

Part of the homework given was to write an essay on how the apprentice can re-weave the connection every day. I thought I would share what I do with them, and you, in the hopes that it may inspire you on your path.

Revenge of the Druids

Treat others as you would like to be treated. Such a simple phrase, yet so hard to comply with when we've been hurt or wounded in any way. Our first reaction is to hurt back, to wound in return. Yet is this how we would like to be treated? What if the person who hurt you didn't even know that they had? What if it was completely intentional? Is it then justifiable to perpetuate the cycle of hurt? How do we, as Druids, work with anger and wounding in today's society? How do we work with honour?

The word Shrine can bring up various images for people from large buildings to a small niche in a wall.  The physical size and complexity of the Shrine is not so important as its purpose.  A Shrine is a place or structure regarded as holy because it is associated with a divinity, spiritual being or something held sacred.
