Good evening everyone
I just wanted to stop by, say hello and introduce myself. I’m Abi, nature lover, animal lover.
Very new to this path, I think it’s the path for me…it resonates with me on a deep level…I feel at peace in the company of nature, the woodlands, the elements. I’ve been hoping to meet like minded people, chat and learn. Good old google sent me in this direction so here I am 😀
If anyone can suggest any articles/blogs/books to start and help a newbie, it would be much appreciated. Many thanks ☺️January 4, 2021 at 9:02 am #12862DannorixParticipant
Hope you find what you are looking for here. The Bardic Course is just amazing. For an in-depth introduction to all concepts, try Natural Druidry by Kristoffer Hughes.January 4, 2021 at 11:06 am #12864david pooleParticipant
Welcome Abi. Regarding your question, anything by Philip Carr-Gomm, Penny Billington, Kristoffer Hughes or Morgan Daimler might help you. There are quite a lot of entries in the BDO main page, including Greywolf’s own blog. OBOD has a very good resources section which is open to members and non-members which has a lot of great articles, see https://druidry.org/resourcesJanuary 4, 2021 at 6:20 pm #12866DowrgiParticipant

Thank you all so much. Nice to meet likeminded people especially during these unprecedented times!
Thank you for guidance re blogs and books…I’ll get looking and ordering. I love reading so looking forward to learning about this path.
How is everyone doing during this time? ☺️January 6, 2021 at 1:37 pm #12891Pinar SaglavParticipant
Hello Abi, greetings from Istanbul, Turkey!
I’m a new member here as well, just started the Bardic course in BDO, but not new to “all this” overall. Been at it for 20+ years but I’m always learning as we all are. I love reading too and would love to swap recommendations on books etc. I second David’s starting suggestions. I love being in nature and feel at home with the trees and the wildlife; sadly I live in the middle of a very big and crowded city and nature is hard to come by.
Nice to meet you.January 11, 2021 at 12:13 am #12917Balaam CampParticipant
Also new here and looking to listen, commune and develop my current spirituality and connection with nature.
Hope everyone is well.January 12, 2021 at 1:39 am #12922Dave TheDruid-3X3Participant

Hello, Welcome and Thank you 🙂 I’ve made a lovely list of your welcomed recommendations..A big thank you 🙂 How is everyone doing?January 17, 2021 at 12:28 pm #12947david pooleParticipant
I am not too bad Abu, thank you for asking. I hope that you are well too. I was going to recommend The Path of Druidry by Penny Billington as particularly insightful, also The Druidry Handbook by John Michael Greer.
