The Outline Of Druidic Rites
PART 4: THANKS, AND CLOSING
After all is done we give proper thanks to all the Powers. The priest/ess leads us in thanking the Patrons and the Kindreds. We thank the Gatekeeper and conjure the Gates to close. We renew our grounding, our
connection with Earth and Sky, and center the energies of the rite in our souls.
We allow any excess energy to flow away into the ground as we offer any remains of the rite to the Earth Mother.
The rite concludes with a blessing and we often sing a closing chant
as we leave the Grove.
