As an artist and a Druid, Elaine has long been interested in the transformative power of body painting and adornment. These weekends offer a unique opportunity to explore who you are, how you see yourself and the images you project to the world by radically altering your body image through paint and decoration. Elaine and other photographers are on hand to capture the results against the beautiful background of Wild Ways. You will receive a disc of digital images to keep as a reminder of an amazing and potentially life-changing experience.

WHITE HORSE CAMPS
We meet as a spiritual community to practice Druidry, living on the land as we celebrate the four seasonal fire festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane and Lughnassah. Druids from all orders are welcome as are folk who enjoy working with nature and the wheel of the year.
Imbolc: January-February (Wild Ways)
Beltane: April-May (Wild Ways)
Samhain: October-November (Wild Ways)
HAND FASTING, BABY NAMING, BLESSINGS FOR A SAFE BIRTH, RITES INTO MANHOOD & WOMANHOOD
You will see these under types of event. A Handfasting is a Rite of Passage. That is, it is a transitsion point/a point of change. Some people like to have a Civil Wedding and then have a Handfasting, which is a couple-led ceremony, blending the necessary with the personal wishes of the couple.
Here, at Wild Ways, we can provide you with the ceremony you would like, either around the Stone Circle, in whichever flower meadow is out at the time, or in the Henge Yurt if it decides to rain. We can officiate the ceremony for you or you can bring your own celebrant in. We can also put you in touch with an Interfaith Minister who provides Handfastings. We are able to help with other Rites of Passage such as Baby Namings and Blessing for safe birth. Other types of passage markers are young men and young women's rites of manhood and womanhood.
BRITISH DRUID ORDER
Rekindling the sacred fires of Druidry as a living, breathing, Earth-honouring, life-affirming spirituality for the 21st century, drawing inspiration from the threefold stream of Awen’s flow from its source, the Cauldron of the goddess Ceridwen.
