Welcome ! The Grove of Manannan Mac Lir

is a group of members of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids

(OBOD) in and around the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California

(USA) who spiritually support one another in our Bardic, Ovate, and Druid work

during the Celtic circle of the year. Being so near the World-Sea, our patron is Manannan

Mac Lir, a Celtic god of the Ocean. Members of the Manannan mac Lir Grove combine the beliefs of Druidry with Celtic shamanism and the work of R.J. Stewart. To find out more about our beliefs, read the Manifesto of the Manannan mac Lir Grove.
