Druidry and the Ancestors : Finding Our Place in Our Own History
Ancestors are part of our shared humanity, we all have them. Ancestry in the guise of race, has been used as a tool to divide. Even so, it might yet help us move in greater harmony. Are we playing out the motifs of our family history, or making our own lives? Are we held back by the past, or empowered by it? And why does any of this matter? Druidry and the Ancestors will take you on a journey into how you imagine yourself, and how you can take control of your identity and future. Druid, author, bard and dreamer. Nimue Brown is OBOD trained, a founding member of Bards of The Lost Forest and Druid Network member.

What do our ancestors give us? What are their stories, held in our blood and DNA? How do we, as modern Pagans, learn from them? By looking, and honouring their truth. Nimue certainly does that here, and her tale is one that we can all learn from as we move to take our place amongst those fascinating folk. --Cat Treadwell
