This densely-packed book provides a concise introduction to Druidry the way we do it in the BDO. It contains essays by the two editors as well as guest contributors; historian, Ronald Hutton; Anglo-Saxon sorcerer, Brian Bates; musician, Andy Letcher; and shaman, Alan Tickhill.
It is divided into four sections: Past, Present and Future sets out where Druidry comes from, what it is like now and how it may develop in the future; Druidry in Theory and Practice outlines the fundamentals of Druid practice and the reasons behind them, including the nature of Awen, sacred time and space, etc.; The British Druid Order discusses the formation of the BDO, its development up until 2002, the formation of local groves, gorseddau, etc.; Things to Make and Do is just that – instructions for making robes and rattles. There is also a section of recommended further reading. BDO Publications, 2nd edition, 2002. Paperback, 88 pages, illustrations, index.
