My birth name is Kevin and I am druid priest and Maine native here in the States. I am the founder of the Druid College along with my colleague Jim Lawer. I recently served as President of the Maine Pagan Clergy Association. I turn 50 this May.
I have been actively practicing Nature-based spirituality for going on thirty years. My pagan studies began in earnest in 1990, completing a year-long apprenticeship in shamanism studying cross-cultural shamanic traditions including Peruvian, Japanese, Hawaiian and Native American teachings. In the mid-nineties I began exploring the European pagan spiritual traditions which has led me to my life path, Druidry. I am a student and colleague of Emma Restall Orr, having been working with her since 1999 and completing her year-long Living Druidry course in the Cotswolds in 2006. I refer to my craft as Animistic Druidry or Mud and Blood Druidry. I am actively involved with pagan prison ministry. Besides teaching workshops and mentoring students, I’ve worked publicly leading ritual, giving lectures and radio interviews to share my vision of Druidry. The Druid College opened in November of 2013.
Some of my other interests include music, playing guitar, photography, poetry, writing, natural building and timber framing, local sustainable living and Permaculture. My passions are exploring consciousness, adventuring in Nature, working with the gods, ritual and crafting the sacred relationships that bring Awen. I am happily married to my succulent wild-woman wife of 19 years. Together we live on the banks of the Saco River. My prayer is equality and peace.
