You should not listen to birds so much then. Or let's be honest? Read unattributed nonsense. Try some MacManus or some Calvert Watkins. Some Corrigan or some Security. Not conspiracy nonsense.

You still l no nothing young lord Snow.

Most of what I know of the Drudic peoples is that of their respect for nature and honoring of Trees by always maintaining a proper respect for a fallen tree by making something beautiful out of it's wood, or, in case of a tree dying and rotting out, having it burned in a respectful ritual for re-purification of the soil and also to keep healthy trees safe.

I have heard a story that when the Catholic Church began building abbey's they were very respectful of the Druid wishes not to hurt any good living trees and respect the natural landscape of sacred groves.

Trees were thought to be the homes of nature spirits, and were respected as such. Especially when the spirits were kind and protected the peoples of the land. No one would have ever thought about cutting down a healthy respected tree for any reason whatsoever, and anyone who did so probably faced harsh punishments.

Sorry, I'm a buff for tree lore.

Big on the conservationist aspect I guess.


I know a little about how Stongehedge was a celestial calendar and meeting place for matters of discussion due to some acoustic abilities of the stones, stones also have a beautiful role in the Druidic Heritage which is why so many members of their descendants will prize certain stones, crystals, etc or make various types of rock art from small carving and pictures on small pocket sized stones to large engravings on memorial stones or markers.

Really amazing stuff, really.

Wish I had resources to share I'm going off memory right now.

Hope you enjoy your look into the Celts!

Ok so a couple of things.

(a) There were no Druidic peoples. Druid was a Job. So there are no Mechanic people today either. Sorry to quibble it just causes a whole heap of confusion. You earned the right to call your self Druid, you were not born to it. Anyone who says they come from a Druid family, is mistaken.

(b) Stonehenge had nothing to do with Druidry in the Pagan sense. The Druid revival of the 18th century decided Stone Henge was a Druid temple. Sadly it predates the Celtic speaking people in the UK by about a 1000 years. Only recently (historically speaking) did you find Druids (in this case the masonic lodge type, who were all really Deist Christians) lurking around there. There is zero evidence the Celts used that site, or others like it.

(c)Trees were not the central part of Druid (and thus Celtic) rituals. All the Indo-European speaking people (English is one of those languages) started with holy spaces in groves of trees, not just the Celtic Speaking ones. From there grew the temples like we see in Athens (guess what Greek is another Indo-European language).

I'm also into things "Druidic" in that my spiritualtiy is pre-Christian Irish.

Well Neighbour, you've yet to learn much of the Druids, beyond sniffing around the edges of history, and some odd ideas that people have had.

Here is the lesson for today:

Nem co doman.
Doman fo nim,
nert hi cach,
an forlann,
lan do mil,
míd co saith.
Sam hi ngam,
gai for sciath,
sciath for durnd.
Dunad lonngarg;
longait- tromfóid
fod di uí
ross forbiur benna
abu airbe imetha.
Mess for crannaib
craob do scís
scís do áss
saith do mac
mac for muin,
muin tairb
tarb di arccoin
odhb do crann
crann do ten.
Tene a nn-ail.
Ail a n-úir
uích a mbuaib
boinn a mbru.
Brú lafefaid
ossghlas iaer errach,
foghamar forasit etha.
Iall do tír
tír co trachd lefeabrea.
Bídruad rossaib síraib rithmár,
‘Nach scel laut?’
Sith co nem
bidsirnae.

Druids pre-dated Christianity.
I'm from Anglesey

Being a Druid is something you learn and earn, it's still alive and well, but not in the neo-paganism sense....in it's original form.

Eh I'd really like to see proof that the paleopagan form is still alive. If it involves white robes and stone circles I'll call bollocks.

Just like there is nothing recorded except from 'outsiders' like the romans et all....that tradition still continues.
As to your second comment, I agree.

See I've seen those claims before, sometimes from "Druids" sometimes "Witches", they have always turned out to be balls. I've got a good friend in the Druid movement in Cymru. His comment is that these people are confusing folk practices with Druids. Druid was a Job, for a dead culture. So even if if they could trace back 1500 plus years (depending where ones ancestors come from) they are no longer doing what their ancestors did. They are NOT serving a tribe.

Follow the prophesy I posted, and get back to me


Now if you rely solely on Augury for your information, you will be at this a long time. Like I said it is all hUath for you if you keep this up.

I have seen these claims too. As to your friend in the "druid movement" in Cymru.......he is no better than those he declares as 'Druids' and 'witches'........as there is no such thing as a "Druid Movement"....if you knew anything about druidry at all....with all due respect.

Also with all due respect, I note you live in NZ, you may have roots back here in the UK, however all you know and understand is what you have read, or your friend tells you.....no different than anyone else who is also genuinely questioning and wanting to know more about Druidry.

Druids are not the domain of Celts, their reach is much further and always has been, albeit under differing names depending where they were and still are.

With all respect there is a Druid movement. Several.

The Druid Lodges (mason like)
the various Neopagan groups, incloding BDO, OBOD etc.

Show me the proof. I refuse to beleive tales
ALso I'm not a "Druid" I am a Paganachad.

What prophecy? 9th century script? Was it better to lose a hand than a penis? I like the Indian mythology stories they are based on, no R -rating..
