Hail and Welcome!

British Druid Order Courses - What our students are saying:

Bardic booklet 5 cover"I have completed the Bardic course and loved every life enriching word of it. Thank you for a wonderful experience. It is one I will continue to go back to time and again and learn even more from. I would highly recommend the Bardic course to anyone." - Bardic student, Shropshire, UK

“I find myself feeling the presence of other beings as I walk, and feel them as fellow travelers in mutual aid. And I’ve finally arrived at a place I can make offerings to the gods and spirits, and do rituals, and really feel it and mean it versus going through the motions because I think I ought to. Finally, I feel the connections I’ve heard others speak of, but found so elusive to find on my own. In the last few months, I’ve felt an incredible surge of energy and renewed meaning in my life. Two months ago, it just popped into my head that my place of employment ought to be doing more on sustainability issues and I proposed, and had accepted, the creation of a task force to implement sustainable processes. I’ve never been a leader, or seen as a leader, but I’m in charge of this initiative and I believe I owe the courage to do this to my Ovate studies.Ovate course student, Minnesota, USA

BDO Groves - growing community

Dear BDO members and friends,

If you have been involved with the BDO for some time you might be familiar with the idea of groves affiliated to the BDO. If you aren't then please take a look at

We are now trying to formalise our record keeping in what groves and where want to be affiliated to us. In order the ensure completeness of records with our new system, please don't assume that we know, so, can I kindly ask everyone who feels that their grove, seed group or other collective either is or should be (or could be) affiliated to the BDO to complete the BDO Grove Affiliation Form and send it back to us. Thanks for your help.
