Vienna Grove, Austria,
Ard Druí Ollamh /|\ Karl Novotny.
When I attended the Full Moon Ceremony on Tara for the first time in June 2010, I realised, this was the path I had been walking on for all my life, I just hadn’t known that yet. So I completed the online course of Ireland’s Druidschool (now incorporated into the Celtic Druid Temple) and came to Ireland several times to pass weekend or week long courses. At the Dark Moon of Samhain 2014 I was initiated as a Druí Fasach and since June 2017 I am Ard Druí.
In and around Vienna I offer Full Moon and Sun Ceremonies and knowledge as a teacher of the Path. I can also host small gatherings at my wooden roundhouse and small standing stone circle for private ceremonies. I’ll do my best to keep our Primordial Tradition alive, which is an important part of European and as well Austrian heritage. Ard Druí Ollamh /|\ Karl Novotny is a teacher / guide at the Celtic Druid Temple with our full support to teach seekers about - Nature, the Ancestors, the Three Realms, the Three Cauldrons and to Natural Time.
