This first Grove will be taught by Fearn Lickfield, GMDO Chief, GMDS Director, and co-author of the training, with esteemed assistant teacher Mary Kay Kasper. See bios here.
Each month we will explore a lesson, teaching, ceremony, meditation or ritual from a chapter of the Bardic Training Manual.
The Online Training Grove requires students to stay on track with their studies. One chapter per month!
If there is extra time in our 1.5 hr. webinar, it will be allotted to Q & A. Student will be invited to type in questions and we will answer as many as we can. Additional questions will be answered on the forum.
All webinars will be recorded and can be watched later.
We strongly encourage Training Grove students to engage in our private forum throughout the month. This will be a private facebook group for discussion, connection with fellow students, and Q and A. It will be moderated by GMDO staff. We will post the links here for the recorded webinars.
We will be using Zoom as the platform for the webinars. Once you fill out the registration form we will contact you with more details about how to join us live or watch the recordings later.
If you are finding us after we have begun our 2019 grove, you can still join and watch the recorded webinars at your own pace.
Students submit a review at the completion of each grade. Staff will offer guidance and feedback and once all the required work is completed, certification.
Yes, we will send you an official, beautiful, artistic GMDO certificate to frame and put on your wall for each grade completed.
There will be Ovate and Druid Training Manuals for those who are ready to continue their journey!
We will be starting additional Online Training Groves as often as there is demand for it and availability of teachers!
We welcome to you to the extended and expanding GMDO Druid family! We invite and encourage you to come to Vermont to meet the land and community here and attend one of our ceremonies, workshops, or for Druid Camp! See more info on our calendar here.
