Bardic Grade

Kari Hetrick aka Auntie Bear of Heartfire Clan.  As far back as I can remember, I have had a special connection to nature and spirit.  Over the years have studied with many teachers on different paths finding truth in all of them.  As a Druid, I have gained the tools to weave it all together, to deepen my connection with all beings including myself, and allow my magical child to be joyfully authentic through laughter, song and play.

Druid Grade

Mary Kay Kasper is a member of the Draegon clan of the GMDO. She works with the intellectually disabled, is a Pagan Spiritual Counselor, dream practitioner, rites of passage guide, eco-therapist, and ceremonial leader with a master’s in counseling and a CAS in Ecopsychology. She is a member of the GMDO, Maine Druid Order and OBOD.

Her passion lies in facilitating deep inquiry into the mysteries of the Dream, as guidance and gateway to our soul-rooted relationship to self and earth. Dreaming Back to the Earth is a path that weaves the energies of the dream and the earth to encourage kinship and healing. Mary Kay facilitates dream groups, earth journeys, and offers workshops and presentations.

Her article “Dreaming Back to the Earth” was published in Depth Psychology’s scholarly journal ‘Depth Insights’. She co-hosts with Katrina Dreamer the podcast “Dreaming Back to the Earth” found on SoundCloud. Her awareness handbook on earth and dreams will be coming out soon.

Lily Jacobson comes from several generations of tree-lovers — perhaps that’s part of where her draw to Druidry took root. Since she was 19, Lily’s primary interest has been nurturing reconnection among people, between people and the land, and within ourselves. She has followed that interest through a winding path of studying religion, especially earth-based traditions; learning permaculture and ecological planning/design; living in intentional community and practicing nonviolent communication; studying and doing personal work around identity, power, privilege, systems of oppression, and ecological leadership; and practicing Druidry in the Green Mountain Druid Order. Lily is a member of the staff collective that supports a statewide grassroots climate justice organization, and she loves making music with people.
