Talk on Celtic Reconstructionism (27 Jan, 2011)

[Cross posted to cr_r]

Kelley Forbes and Christopher Redmond will be presenting a talk on Celtic Reconstructionism. We will cover such topics as "Who are the Celts?", "What is Reconstructionism?", and "So, who are those people in the white robes?"

There will also be a small ritual observance of Imbolg, for those who are interested. Ritual will be outside; if you plan to join us for this part of the talk, please dress accordingly.

Bring your questions and a snack or drink to share.

To maybe start of some discussion...

In order to hopefully start up some discussion, I figured I'd post a question for the group:

What problems do CRs in the Southwestern area face that might differ from those in other areas/environments.

For example, here in Arizona, the seasons don't precisely match up with the traditional Celtic calendar.

Any thoughts?

Gaol Naofa

A friend of mine and myself are starting a Celtic Reconstructionist Organization entitled "An Chuallacht Ghaol Naofa (CGN)" or "Gaol Naofa" for short. We currently are not accepting official membership. However there is a public forum which we are excepting members on. We would greatly appreciate anyone interested in Celtic Reconstructionism check out the forum. Thanks



I just wanted to say hello to the group. I am a new Celtic Reconstructionist (been one for about 2 or 3 years) who has been a practicing Pagan for about 7 years. 

I live in Texas (which to me is in the South West, don't know if anyone else considers it as such). Before that I lived in Louisiana, and before that in New Hampshire. I was however born in Ohio. So I get around.

I have been looking for a Celtic Reconstructionist Community for some time, and thanks to a friend who suggested the communities on live journal have finally found one. So I hope you all live up to my expectations. I am hoping to learn alot from you guys.

I am currently reading the Tain, Kinsela Translation. It is an amazingly hard book to read, but not as hard as the Bible is (and yes I was a Christian before becoming a Pagan). I find that the Tain was something that was probably meant to be listened to more than it was meant to be read, but we all probably knew that already didn't we? =P

Well thats my introduction, hope you liked it.
