Druidry is one of many threads that form the fabric of my life; the “golden thread,” if you like. It’s one of the threads I follow on this blog, sometimes unpicking, sometimes elaborating, always celebrating.
As an inititated Awenydd of the Anglesey Druid Order, I have made a commitment to honour and celebrate the sacred landscape of this island, and to carry the inspiration of its lessons with me in everything I do. The Druid Network has been my most enduring source of inspiration and learning on this path, and their website is always the first resource I would recommend to anybody interested in contemporary druidry. I am also in the very loosest of affiliations with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, and confess a love of the rich liturgy of Celtic literature they have collected.
My earliest encounter with druidry was decidedly non-pagan, but no less magical for that, though I have all but given up hope of recovering my mamiaith to the point of being a cultural, as well as a pagan, druid.
For nearly 5 years I have kept an occasional blog on my druidic thoughts and activities at https://incidentaldruidry.wordpress.com/; from the summer solstice of 2017 – the 10th anniversary of my commitment to this path – I am beginning to integrate this part of my life into my everyday blog here at the nettle patch.
