If you're on a druid path, which approach appeals most? For you, is it a set of beliefs, or a craft/practices? What is your take on those terms and how they express (or even shape) your path?

I guess at this point I'm just echoing what others have said, but I much prefer Druidry over -ism. "Druidism" sounds funny, for one, but I'm also put off by the weight the -ism adds. But that may strictly be a personal interpretation.

I'm on ADF's Dedicant Path myself. It gives me the structure I feel like I've been yearning for, but I also find it to have "wiggle room" where I can incorporate my own personal experiences and UPG.

The ancient Druids (that being an anglicized term, of course) were the intellectual and professional class of the ancient Celts. They were schooled for decades in the lore and practice of their profession, in a fashion not currently possible. While some people can back up a claim to qualify for such a title, for most who claim the title these days, it's a bit like claiming to have a Ph.D. because you read a few books, in a context where there are no recognized institutions that give Ph.D.s, anymore.

Most groups using the terms, in my experience, have much more in common with 17th and 18th century revivalist Druidry than with ancient Druids and apply it to all members, regardless of their level of experience or knowledge.  Roll Eyes

If it were possible to agree with this 1000%, I would. Right said.

The term doesn't really matter to me whether the term ends in "ism" or "ry" but in ADF we call it Druidry. Being that I'm studying a Roman centric path I recognize it's not a historically appropriate term.

I think that Druidry is both a set of beliefs and a set of practices. I don't, however agree that it's merely a philosophy of living compatible with many religions. I think that at its heart, it is a Pagan belief, practice and philosophy.
