A Keltrian Druid Grove
The mountains rise above the silver clouds,
The bird takes flight spiraling higher and higher
The winds blow from all directions,
The seasons begin their change,
PLEASE NOTE: This page is now largely archival. The eGroups list is gone, I don't think the PO Box is ours anymore, we no longer do ritual on anything resembling a regular basis, and Morgan's path has moved away from the purely Keltrian. Links may or may not be maintained. Other than that, feel free to look around :-), or visit the Inland Empire Pagan Network home page.
The Grove of the Sacred Well is a group of neo-druids who choose to follow the Keltrian tradition. We are located in the Inland Empire region of Southern California.
Just what is a neo-druid? According to historians, the ancient Druids were philosophers, judges, educators, historians, doctors, seers, astronomers and astrologers. While some modern druids have achieved professional standing in some of these professions, many of us have not.
H.E. Crawford (a.k.a. Kenhar) put it nicely: "A Druid is a prevader of truth and wisdom from antiquity forward. With the express purpose to be a keeper and transmitter of knowledge and wisdom which is to be utilized to maintain balance and harmony in all things spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and magical under our influence." A high ideal to be sure, but one which we try to live up to.
Sacred Well Grove currently has two Keltrian initiates, and . Feel free to contact either of us for information on what's currently happening, upcoming events, etc. (However, since this is an archived page, there isn't likely to be much *g*. Try the Pagan Network for the Inland Empire for local happenings and current cross-quarter dates instead.)

When Morgan was working on the Keltrian correspondence course in '94, she read a book that really got her thinking. Read Morgan's commentary on "Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles."
Just what are those Internet "baby-sitter" software programs blocking? If you have one, and it's even letting you see this site, there's probably a fair number of important words missing. It seems that pagan sites are being lumped into the "cult/satannist" category and words like "druid," "wicca" and even "goddess" are being censored or blocked!
