OBOD Druids in Mass. Celebrate Winter Solstice

Very nice article about the OBOD Druids of the Mystic River Grove in Massachusetts who celebrated the Winter Solstice with an evening bonfire ritual.  Photos at
They met at "The Peace Abbey" which is an interesting looking organization.  Although they are moving, for members in the Boston Metro area, it may be good to look at their site for potential activities in the future.  They have a Bed & Breakfast as well as conference spaces for rent.  They also have a Pacifist Living History Museum and a Quaker room. It looks like a place it would be nice to have an Keltria Gathering and/or Annual Meeting.

The Order of the Bards, Ovates and Druids celebrated Winter Solstice at the Peace Abbey on Wednesday, Dec. 21.....

...the Boston “[Mystic River] grove” has been in existence for about 20 years....

..."the goals of Druid practices are similar to the practices of the Peace Abbey such as embracing Mother Earth.”

OBOD Druids mentioned in the article include:
  • Sarah Fuhro of Natick.

  • Cat Hughes of Berlin

  • James Dempsey (A Shamanic Energy Healer)
