This mailing list is on the subject of magic and divination. The founders of this list follow a path which is druidical in nature. By druidical I mean those who have a primarily celtic focus and who specialize in magic, divination, leading ritual, and other occult/esoteric avocations. However this is open to people of all religions and organizations,and all people who are interested in living a magical life. For we all have things to learn from one another.
The name of our new mailing list is Draiocht. Draiocht is the modern Irish word for magic, and is also a more ancient word for those who followed the path of the druid.
We want the Draiocht list to develop techniques and methods that are practical and universal for all in their work of the body, mind and spirit. In addition to existing celtic lore and techniques, we will be willing to explore techniques from the world and the cultures in it, and then improve upon them in a uniquely Celtic way that is guided by the Celtic spirit and the gods of the people.

We seek the Love of Spirit.
We Dare the Twofold Pathway on one leg.
We sing the Names of Creation.
We die the Death of Life.
We look with Sightless Eyes.
We dance the Silence.
We hear the Stone of Fate.
We live the Life of Lives.
Draiocht is the name of our pathway and its Mysteries are our Truth.
The call has been issued. The Wind's breath flows across the edge of
Now is our gathering.
