Here reside the spiritual and poetic musings of Amhrán na Maidine, a Druid priestess in Upstate New York.
Outside my spiritual life, I have a wonderful husband, one very bitchy and lovely cat, a job I truly enjoy, a Ph.D. in English with the world’s coolest doctoral dissertation, a house in an oak wood and a really crappy garden. I run a lot, practice yoga and am learning to conquer my fears in aikido. I am also a poet, singer, musician and recording artist; you can hear — and buy! — my work at www.kwannon.net. (Please do. I’ll love you forever, promise.)
White Cat Grove started out as a Henge of Keltria study group, but that fell apart after a few years. I spent about 10 years in the Henge, during which time I won a Golden Oak Award from DANAC for my article in Talking About the Elephant, completed the Rings of Birch and Yew, wrote a ton of articles, and served as the Henge Vice President for a short time.
Then I hit that fork in the road and decided to return to my previous Druidic tradition: Ár nDraíocht Féin. (If you knew me from my old days back in ADF, I sincerely apologize.)
You’re welcome to join me on my journey. I don’t always write in this blog as often as I should, but I promise myself to do more all the time.
