The Grove of the Corietauvi was formed in 1996 and has a membership area covering Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, and Lincolnshire.
As a grove we celebrate the 8 fold seasonal ceremonies, hold monthly meetings, perform Rites of passage (handfastings, namings etc). Our monthly meetings are a mix of Grove business, workshops, discussion groups, talks and general socialising in a (very) informal atmosphere.
Both the monthly meetings and the seasonal ceremonies are held at varying locations around our membership area, including our “Hearth Grove” in a beautiful private woodland in the heart of Leicestershire’s Charnwood forest.
As a grove we encourage active participation from our members, and expect a degree of commitment to attend regular meetings and ceremonies.Being an OBOD members only Grove simply means that all of our grove members have completed, or are registered on the OBOD correspondence course.
We, like all other OBOD groves, operate completely autonomously from the central OBOD office. There is no dogma, or central party line. Being an OBOD grove means that we are all approach our Druidry from a shared knowledge base.
