Athelia Nihtscada has been studying Druidry since 1990. Through her studies under various teachers and through intense self-study, she has become knowledgeable in many fields of Celtic history, myth, legend and the Brehon Laws.
While most of her early years were spent in solitary practice, Athelia did become involved in the local Pagan Community starting in 2000. In 2003, Athelia decided to form Awen Grove; a Druid community based firmly on ethics and service. In 2005, Athelia completed the Dedicant Path with ADF and was initiated as a Third Order Druid with the Reformed Druids of North America. Athelia is also a member of the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids, The British Druid Order and the Henge of Keltria. Currently, Athelia serves as the Regional Coordinator for Western Canada (Westview) on behalf of the Druid Network and the Regional Druid of Western Canada for ADF.
An avid artist, writer, public speaker, singer and poet, she brings all of this to her work for the world-wide Druid community with love and passion.
