What is Druidry?

Background

BDO Druidry is a contemporary living spiritual tradition based on the earliest native spirituality of Britain and Europe of which any written record survives. Druidry developed during the European Iron Age that began almost 3,000 years ago, but grew out of an even earlier stratum of practice and belief.

bdo groves

We need your help

We have had a number of enquiries on this site and on our Facebook group from people asking if there are any BDO groves and whether they can set one up or join an existing grove.

At present, we do not know of any functioning BDO-affiliated groves, so we are asking you to let us know if you are a member of an active grove, and if so, we are keen to register your grove on this site.

Also, in order to assist us in the process of facilitating members to get in touch and to meet others in their local area who may be interested in joining or setting up groves, we are asking all our members to let us know where they live, by county if in the UK or by country if outside the UK. You can now go to your member’s profile page and select which county / country you live in. This information will not be shared publicly. It is merely to allow us to compile a map of how many people live in each area of the UK (or outside the UK). We will not share your location information with anyone unless you explicitly consent to do so.

Once we have an idea of the distribution of our members around the UK and abroad, we can assist people to get in touch with each other if they wish to do so.

For information about what groves do and how to set up a grove, see our Groves page.

To register your home location by county or country, please go to your member profile page.

To register an existing grove, please complete the form on the Grove Registration page

For a list of existing groves, please visit the Current Groves page

What people are saying about our courses

"My life has completely changed. I went from sitting at home doing much of nothing to embracing nature, getting involved in a variety of volunteer opportunities to heal the earth...I’ve developed a strong sense of being of service to the planet and the beings upon it—be they human or other or unseen—and that would not have happened without my studies. ...I’m a completely changed person compared to who I was before I started down this path."

"The bardic course was challenging, fascinating and a real joy...The exercises and meditations opened the doors to some of the most moving spiritual experiences of my life. The cell of song exercise created a vivid connection with spirits of place and with spirit guides (animal and human) and yet another new perspective on some of the classics of medieval Welsh literature. The “wildness” and the shamanic aspects of the course attracted me hugely and I have come to feel that BDO is really and truly my spiritual home."

"This course specifically resonates with me at times. I have come to understand connections, pathways (not physical) I have stepped into myself, I'm learning stories and speaking them with understanding, I delight in how the universe works so wonderfully. I see the stands of connections, I feel and appreciate life, not just the legged kind , the rocks , the stories. I'm still learning, every day and I am grateful for it. So my thanks for this course."
