On the full moon every month members hold a Meditation for Peace, a grove ceremony with the central theme and focus for world peace, by themselves or with a Grove or Seedgroup.

On the 2nd December 2023 we will be returning to the Glastonbury Town Hall for the Order's Winter Gathering. More details will be published here as the event takes shape. Please be aware that the capacity of the Town Hall is only 180 so this event will sell out very quickly once tickets go on sale and the date tickets will go on sale and booking details will be sent out with the Gwersi and Touchstone after the Summer Gathering.
What is the purpose of ritual? The purpose of ritual is to mark a moment or a time of importance. Firstly, this starts with creating some time for yourself, and in this time you can find out what you need to do. You may need to honour something or someone, let go of something or someone, acknowledge a life change, or find some healing or courage. How we honour and mark this moment is what we will explore in this workshop - finding what’s important for you and finding the expression of ritual that is purely yours.
For members who are currently studying within the Bardic Grade, you are invited to the Bardic Gorsedd, held in the wonderful landscape of Penmaenmawr, with a view of Anglesey from the shoreline.

Groves, a ceremony on the Tor, Stonehenge dawn ceremony and full Order events on Sunday morning.

The date tickets will go on sale and booking details will be sent out with the Gwersi and Touchstone towards the end of February 2023.

3 circles: November 1 (Samhuinn) - December 29 (Rough Nights) - February 1 (Imbolc) This three-sessions offer is one that accompanies you into the Darkness, the North, into the Slow Part of the year. It starts with a session on Samhuinn on November 1, goes further to a meeting in the 12 Nights of Christmas, which in Bavaria and Austria are called the „Rough Nights“ or the „Lots Nights“, around the time of the Winter Solstice, Alban Arthuan, to the time of the Reappearing Sun on Imbolc on February 1. The offer is part of my Connecting to Earth offer that has circles on all the Solstices, the Equinoxes and the Cross-Quarter-Days, for us to learn better again our connection to the Earth and the times of the year.
