7 Spiritual Practices for Difficult Times

7 Spiritual Practices for Difficult Times

Update April 21, 2017

Among some of the more practical tracts of text pertaining to Druidry and Paganism, I have been adding some  quotes and poetry and a few meditations and chants and prayers to my Crane Book of Wisdom.

Among them are “The Peace of Wild Things” by Wendell Berry, “Nature Meditation on Amergin”, “I Have” a Navajo chant, “Earth Teach Me” an Ute prayer.

Some more: “Calling My Name” by Jim Beer, “The Task of a Poet” by Dejan Stojanovic, “Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep” by Mary Elizabeth Frye, “Advice From A Tree” by Ilan Shamir, “The Druid Vow of Friendship” which I found on Pinterest.

Some more good stuff: “The Dream of Now” by William Stafford, “Stopping by Woods On a Snowy Evening” and “The Road Not Taken”by Robert Frost,, and “An English Wood” by Robert Graves, Brehon Law and Trees, “Do not be dismayed” by L.R. Knost, “Let Earth be healed”, and another chant called simply The Awen chant.

An After School Satan Club could be coming to your kid’s elementary school

NOTE: While I do not practice Satanism is any way or incorporate it into my Druid practices, I find this article interesting.  The reason why I find this interesting is because of this reason. If they are allowing after school groups that are Christian in nature, and are now going to allow groups to form that are of a Satanic nature. This opens the doors wide open. Why? Because it gives legal grounds to have Wiccan or Druidic groups the right to assemble or form. If Christian and Satanic groups to assemble, why not Pagan groups that are based on Wicca or Druidry? This might be a boon to parents who are pagan or parents with children who are pagan.
