The “Gaelic Druid Order" was founded by Joint-Chiefs, Ruiseart and Ceit Alcorn and is run from the Mother Grove (“Sgiath an Fhithich”) in the Scottish Highlands. We also have a Daughter Grove (the “Ashby Grove”) in Western Australia which is under the guidance of Eamonn and Robyn O’ Treasaigh.
Our aim is to help develop the spiritual potential of the individual whilst working with Nature, via the traditional groves of Bard (poet, story-teller), Ovate (seer, prophet) and Druid (philosopher, priest, magician).
Also, it is our belief that a connection to one's ancestry is very important and for this reason the study of the Gaelic language and culture forms an integral part of Bardic studies. This connection is not to be confused with living in the past; the intention is to provide a foundation for the future, both individually and as a group. People of all racial backgrounds are welcome. Those of Gaelic descent can find a connection to their heritage, whilst "non" Gaels can use the Order as a platform from which they can discover their own roots.
