Druid UU Video

So far, I've only created one little video about Druidry and have posted it on my YouTube channel. It's an introduction to the Seven Gifts of Druidry, as expressed by Philip Carr-Gomm in his fine book, Druid Mysteries: Ancient Wisdom for the 21st Century. While summarizing his seven points, I put together a series of photos that help me visualize the connections expressed in the Seven Gifts. As I'm from Michigan, most of the images are ones I've taken in the woods and waters of the Great Lakes State, with a variety of others sprinkled in as well.

Imagine my surprise the other day when I received an email from Philip himself asking if he could post my video on the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids website and on his blog. Amazingly enough, you can view it there now if you check out their home page at 

While not currently an OBOD member, I certainly have found a great deal of inspiration and insight from their online and written materials and am happy to make this connection. Hopefully my little production, especially the images of the natural splendor of Michigan, help inspire others to connect with nature in whatever ways they find meaningful. After all, if each of us were to find even a few special connections to the plants and animals around us, the world would be such a cleaner, happier, healthier and more peaceful place!

As winter s-l-o-w-l-y turns to spring, I hope you fully enjoy and appreciate the changing season in this special time of year. Peace be with you and blessed be!
