      Hi all,

      I trained in Nat Mag (Natural Magic) nigh on 30 years ago. I follow the seasonal round and keep up the day. In my old age (60F) I’m looking for less of the Mag and more of the Nat. Should I take the BDO Bardic grade? Thoughts and suggestions welcome! Thanks:) Further info: Cornish speaker (so some proximity to Welsh) living in the beautiful middle of nowhere but also mildly disabled, so chunks of ‘outdoors’ work done from my windows. Definitely *don’t* want to join a working group πŸ˜‰

        Awens to Tamara!

        Where did you Train in Natural Magic? Do they have a Website?

        I am always interested in other ways to practice the Druidistic Arts.

          Thank you, Dave, and to you!

          No websites, I’m afraid. I started out in the early 90s with Marian Green’s book ‘A Witch Alone’, which I followed pretty much to the letter for the duration of the course, passing a little tentative correspondence with Marian in the process. In the late 90s I joined a closed magical group of Marian’s lineage in East Anglia, where I was living at the time, and did a full year and a day of magical training with them; course work both theoretical and practical being delivered at the festivals and cross-quarters. Formal initiation followed at the end of the statutory period. None of the (few) groups I’ve been involved with have had websites, but if you’re in the market for Nat Mag books written by folks I’ve worked with especially closely, then anything by Val Thomas fits the bill exactly, and Nigel Pennick’s ‘East Anglian Magic’ provides some background (Nigel’s really a Northern Tradions Man, though). Nigel Pearson’s ‘Walking the Tides’ is also a good magic-in-East-Anglia reference. I hope this is helpful πŸ™‚

          Do you have any thoughts regarding my potentially studying Bardic grade Druidry with the BDO?

                    If anyone else is reading this and has any thoughts they’d like to add regarding my original post, please do wade in, ignoring me and Dowrgi and our digression into Cornish. There’s no intention to be rude or private, honest – it’s just a treat sometimes to use one’s other (and only other!) language outside of its usual context 😉

                    Kres (Peace)
