We're very privileged to have had had the chance for a fantastic interview with Greywolf, aka Philip Shallcrass, the Head (or Chief 'Wolfsbody'!) of the British Druid Order and his fascinating son, Joe. You can hear the first part of this very informative chat in our Episode SP39, Druid Special #1 and the second half in Episode SP40, Druid Special #2.

Biography


Greywolf, the Chief 'Wolfsbody' of the British Druid Order (the BDO) created the Order from his realisation he was a Druid in 1974 and his simultaneous realisation that Druids were the shamanic folk of ancient Britain and Europe. He has been chief of the BDO since 1979, sharing the role with Bobcat (aka Emma Restall Orr) between 1995 and 2002. He is a writer, musician, singer-songwriter, artist, roundhouse builder and thatcher. He currently lives in Wiltshire with two of his three sons, not far from his beloved Avebury. He writes regular blogs on Greywolf’s Lair.

The British Druid Order, rekindling the sacred fires of Druidry as a living, breathing, Earth-honouring, life-affirming spirituality for the 21st century, drawing inspiration from the threefold stream of Awen’s flow from its source, the Cauldron of the goddess Ceridwen. They offer Distance Learning Courses as well as many Retreats and Workshops at the Spiritual Centre of Wildways on the Borle.

About the BDO

The British Druid Order teaches and practices Druidry as a living, pagan, animistic, native European spirituality.

Mission

Our aim is to promote a type of Druidry that draws on past tradition but is relevant to today's needs. Our Druidry is creative, inspirational, animistic, shamanistic, spiritual, celebratory, ecological, Pagan and mystical. When funds allow, we intend to establish a trust to buy and manage land on which we shall celebrate rituals, hold talks, workshops, camps and retreats, and bury our dead, the ancestors of the future.
