In this podcast episode I speak with Eimear Burke, a Druid and Seanchaí (storyteller) as well as the Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD). We talk about the importance of Rites of Passage and how Druidry can help to inspire and inform rituals to mark moments of significance in our lives.
In the Western world we sometimes lose track of the most important moments in our lives—transitional and transformational moments such as giving birth, menopause, divorce or breakups, marriage or commitment, death of a loved one, an important achievement, getting sober, menses, and so many other moments. We often don’t give these Rites of Passage the true presence and meaning that they deserve, and in this episode we discuss how the earth-honoring pathway of Druidry can help us to uplift these moments as modern women.
We also discuss what it means to walk the Druidic path in the modern world and how to create more meaning in our everyday lives through ritual and ceremony.
