Druidry

Hello,

recently I looked into more information about druidry and the celtic culture, I was'nt able to find too many sources describing it widely enough... I mainly come across celtic mythology or wiccan practices trying to learn about it more...

what are some sources some of you might use to learn about this matter? is there information missing simply because there were'nt many texts and writing left of that culture? it feels like there's a missing link aroud that... it feels like this used to be a rather big deal during ancient times...but maybe i'm wrong

I feel your pain.

You're not wrong about there being a missing link as much was lost. What little we do know about the Druids from ancient time was written by the Romans and Greeks who were enemies and outsiders of Celtic culture. Such writings should be taken with a pound of salt as there is most likely propaganda.

Most of what we have, I believe, comes from a mix of mythology and some archaeology. What we're left with is a modern perspective of Druidry as no one can truly recreate what the ancient Druids knew or did.

Some people have blended Wiccan and Druid practices.

Now for some resources if you're interested for a starting point. You can check out a couple of authors, John Michael Greer and Penny Billington. There are other authors but those two are fairly popular.

For online reading, you could begin with OBOD (Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids). They have courses but have to pay for them. You can poke around in their site for free. Another good site is ADF.org.

Happy reading!
