I Am a Druid

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 87 People

    What is a Druid is a long conversation.

    :) Being with trees is a strong part of it, but I was taught for 19 years...so many things. I've done 1 hour long Druidism 101 classes before, and touched on some of it. The best thing to do is walk in the forest. From my very extensive studies I found, quite a while ago...

    Druidry For Me

    I began to follow the Druid path in 1972, and have been a Druid ever since. The Romans called Druids "Priests" equating us with their own religion, the Greeks had a better understanding and called us Philosophers. As a Druid I am skilled as a Herbalist/Healer, a Poet...

    Jungian Druid My coming ashore to the island

    of Paganism wasn't through my family or through my peers. I came to know it through a gravity I felt, even in my early years, to nature, magic, and myth. This feeling became relatively strong in me around ages eleven to fourteen, and it was during those years that I had first...

    A Little About Me

    My name is Athelia Nihtscada and my journey along the Druid path started back in 1991. My husband and I live outside of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. When I started out, there were no Druids in my locale that I could find so I did much of my studying alone and under a few teachers...

    Although I am or have been a member of four

    different Druidic Orders or organizations – the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD), the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA), the British Druid Order (BDO), and Ar nDraiocht Fein ("Our Own Druidry," ADF) – I think the extent to which I think of myself as "being...

    Síocháin Go Raibh Ar Talamh! (Peace Be Upon Earth!)

    It is said - No matter how much time or distance separates you from the village, something of the original spark of its fire still burns within you. This is true for me and so I am powerfully drawn to the spiritual paths of my Anglo-Celtic Pagan Ancestry, including Druidry...

    My Dream Grove

    In the waking world I live in an apartment I am lucky to be in a city of trees but still I am far from my trees I grew up with. When I dream I often find myself in a grove of trees mixed of Ginkgo trees and red woods. This past year I made a good friend who offered to let me move...

    I was raised Druidically by my Father,

    so I follow a slightly different system than some of the other Druidic schools, such as OBOD or ADF. Even so, Druidism is no one particular thing, aside from the obvious central precepts. If you read "The Colloquy of the Two Sages" you can see Druidic teachings and testing...

    I mostly agree Druidism is not what people

    think of as a religion. :) Druidism is something like a scientific outlook, but still retaining ethics and justice as a driving force. I would assert, through the lens of my extensive studies, that nascent Western science diverged from Druidism when ethics were striped from it...

    I'm A Druid (its A Nature Thing)

    I am a Druid and i have told people this. They nod recognizing the term and then, with human curiosity often ask or say things about the subject and my involvement. Druid is a more positive and yet ambiguous term than say 'pagan' or such. I am pagan in some ways but am an atheist...

    Druid Is Not a Religion

      The saddest experience of my life was when the US government recognized Druid as a religion, along with Wicca. Druid is a system of truths, based on hard science, and soft science, not on mythology, or control. We speak of magik, but in the sense that it is the...
