Last night, I came back from our new Green Druid Mayor’s inaugural party quite late and went into the garden to find dozens of slugs and snails had been having quite a party of their own. Four young and tender purple sprouting broccolis had been massacred, and the rest were hanging on by a thread. All this despite my efforts of appeasement in recent weeks, by using copper wire to deliver a mild electric shock, and broken up egg shells. I quickly realised that it was time to act more decisively if my food for the winter was going to survive, and so I scooped all the little critters up into a plastic bag, sealed it tight and threw it in the dustbin.
The book you’ve been waiting for has now been published!
This is the first book of its kind, because it breaks new ground in opening up the portals between the worlds in a way that’s been kept secret for thousands of years. Read more
I’ve always planted by the phases of the moon – in other words, sowing seeds for flowers and herbs when the moon is waxing, and seeds for root vegetables when the moon is on the wane. There’s nothing New Age about that planting method … any gardener worth his salt knows that this is mighty effective if you want a good crop, and I think even scientists know it. But I learned something new and magical last night, from a friend. Read more

When I first tried to read Katharine Maltwood’s A Guide to Glastonbury ‘s Temple of Stars, I ended up with a terrible headache. Even though I’d studied mythology and archaeology for decades, this 1920s identifier of the Somerset circular landscape temple seemed so ‘other’ to me, and her ideas far too dense, like an overpoweringly and sickeningly rich scented pot pourri from another time. However, now – several years later – I’m picking up her books again and reading them with ease and joy. It’s almost as if she’s talking to me personally at times – as if she’d written for an age when we would have more knowledge about our ancestors and thus be more able to pick up her quiet nudges and gentle allusions which are threaded throughout her writing like delicate and refined gold knotwork.

In this short blog, I describe how I think the concept of sovereignty was hijacked from its original spiritual meaning via a common mythological theme which crops up all over the world – known as the Lord of the Animals. Read more
The story in the stars over the Isle of Glass during the time of Beltane, or May Day, is of a duel over the hand of a beautiful maiden, between the Summer King in the form of the constellation of Scorpius and the Winter King in the form of Orion. Read more
We’ve been having a somewhat scholarly discussion at the Lazy Gecko cafe about whether the effigies on the landscape zodiac do actually pre-date Christianity, and also whether the Celtic stories, which I think they depict, can be verified to be rooted in an older mythological oral tradition. It’s really got me thinking… Read more
Our meeting on the banks of the River Parrett at Burrowbridge this Saturday will signal the beginning of a Quest in which we’ll be working shamanically with the huge earthwork faery giants on the Ynys Witrin (Isle of Glass) landscape – known as the Glastonbury Temple of the Stars. (If you’d like to know more about that, click here).
This is a new graphic to show where each of the faery and animals characters is positioned in the Faery Ring. The outlines are not exactly those of the effigies, but they are in the right place, so you can see how it all fits together. The graphic after that shows the actual effigies with their correct shapes as they appear on the land, and then there’s also a key. Read more
If you’re coming to the Feeding of the Dog shamanic ceremony at Burrowbridge, Somerset, at 11.30 am on this Saturday, 4th April – and I hope you are! – I thought you might like a few more details about exactly where it is, its purpose and a little more about what to expect, and why. Read more
I find myself increasingly living in a world in which it’s difficult to reply to questions, because the common currency of communication is made up of ‘coins’ in which I no longer trade.
For instance, I was asked the other day, at a meeting of Greens, whether, given ‘the problem of global warming’, we should continue to rely on fossil fuels. Read more
This interview with me by Henrik Palmgren was broadcast by Red Ice Radio last week and it’s about the importance of preserving race in order to access the wisdom teachings from the ancestral spirits, which is the focus of our discussion. Read more
On the subject of human rights – it really puts things into perspective when you try to use historical precedent to make a logical case for the human being’s right to live on this planet. And not just humans – because all plant and animal life that exists on Earth was just not here billions of years ago. Read more
I’d like us to start working with the Green Fire as soon as we each feel ready to. We don’t have to wait until our shamanic ceremony on Saturday 4th April to start connecting with the spirits of the Land and the ancestors, and so I’d like to share some guidance here about how to start going forwards now, if you’d like to.

Our Feeding the Dog shamanic ceremony this year will take place on the Blood Moon, Saturday April 4th. You may have been wondering what a Blood Moon is and about its significance with shamanic work? So here’s an article all about it. Read more
It seems to me that the situation we’re in regarding the threat to the survival of our race has all the hallmarks of an initiatory test as part of a rite of passage. Read more
It was so heartening to see how the locals and even others, up and down country, pulled together in unison to help us overcome everything the Death Eaters threw at us, a year ago. There being no loyalty among thieves and dissemblers, it is the one thing they wouldn’t have bargained for.
I am a racist.
I carry the memories and stories of my ancestors in the blood of my race, in my DNA; these are unique to the Celts and they form the basis of my spiritual consciousness and my cosmological understanding. Read more
