Hello everybody!

I am very interested in learning more about Druidry and all of it's aspects, but I am completely unsure where to start. I know some things about it but I've found it really hard to find any good websites/books that talk about modern-day practices and rituals. If anyone could possibly point me in the right direction or give me some of their own insights, I'd appreciate it very much so!

Thank you in advance,

Kamrian

Hi.

We've had a number of threads about druidry and the various druid organizations lately.  Here are some you should check out -- most have links to druidry organization websites:

http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=3376.0
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=7432.0
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=12086.0
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=9580.0
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=2644.0
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=13529.0
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=11457.0

There have also been a number of druidry-related books discussed in our book review board, so you might want to look through there for book suggestions.

You might also try just searching this site for "druid" and "druidry".

Good luck with your search.

Thank you! I figured there were other threads but I wasn't sure where to start my search. And I will checkout the book suggestions you gave me.

Apologies if I offended by making this thread...as I said I wasn't quite sure where to look. Still re-adjusting back into this site.

Thank you again. Smiley

Don't worry about it; I think you'll have to work harder than that to offend. Wink  (...Er.  That's not a request.  LOL)

Hi! I'm a member of ADF, a pan-Indo-European Druidic group, and would be more than happy to answer a few questions. Smiley ADF is more on the academic side of things than many other Druid groups, which is exactly where I like to be - a good blend of research and inspiration.

Druidry can be fairly difficult to define as different organisations view Druidry in their own way.  I'm a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, and a former member of ADF, which have very different views on Druidry, so my definition will vary greatly from Ellens.  OBOD is more experiential than academic, so we often joke on our message board that there are as many definitions of Druidry as there are Druids.

One thing you won't really find are Druid 101 books (This is what we believe, here are our rituals, and here are a bunch of spells) similar to the countless Wicca 101 books out there, so it makes it difficult to understand what we 'do' and how someone with no experience in Druidry can put together a working system on their own.

Check out some Druid organisation websites:

www.druidry.org
www.adf.org
www.aoda.org
www.druidnetwork.org

Not an exhaustive list, but hope it helps.
