What is NeoPagan Druidry?
NeoPagan Druidry is a group of religions, philosophies and ways of life, rooted in ancient soil yet reaching for the stars. We are part of the larger NeoPagan movement; one of the worlds most vital and creative new religious awakenings. Like much of that movement we are polytheistic, and Pantheistic nature worshippers, working with the best aspects of the Pagan religions of our predecessors within a modern scientific, artistic, ecological and holistic context using a non-dogmatic and pluralistic approach.
We call ourselves Druids, and we look to the ancient Druids - the priests, priestesses, wise ones and magicians of the ancient Celts -for much of our inspiration. Like them, we're people who value excellence - physically, intellectually, artistically and spiritually.
Although our name implies an inclination toward things Celtic, we seek to understand all of the currents within the Indo-European spectrum of religions. In addition to those who follow Celtic ways we welcome Norse, Hellenic, Baltic, Vedic, Slavic, Latin and other IndoEuropean-oriented NeoPagans, and encourage each to take up the worship and magic of the old ways.
