Druidry is a wonderful, spiritually fulfilling life path. Through the magic that is Druidry, we build deep and abiding relationships with the natural world around us, and through our connection to the natural environment we walk a path of truth, honour and service. We aim to immerse ourselves in the present moment, in the present environment, in order to share in the blessing that is the cycle of life.

Throughout the ages, people have withdrawn from the world in order to connect more fully with it. This book is an introductory guide for those who wish to walk the Druid path alone, for however long a time. It is about exploration and connection with the natural world, and finding our place within it. It covers the basics of Druidry and how, when applied to the everyday life, enriches it with a sense of beauty, magic and mystery.

This book is for those people who feel called to seek their own path, to use their wit and intelligence, compassion and honour to create their own tradition within Druidry.

"This is one of the best ´core´ texts on Druidry that I have had the pleasure of reading."
Cat Treadwell, author of A Druid´s Tale and Facing the Darkness

"This is not a book about Celtic scholarship or the historical Celts, rather it is a guide to how to BE a modern Druid in the world today."
Ellen Evert Hopman, author of A Druid´s Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine, Priestess of the Forest - A Druid Journey, and other volumes.

"It is enthusiastic, based in good practice, and allows the reader to start with sound and gentle steps. I heartily recommend it."
Graeme K Talboys, author of Way of the Druid: Rebirth of an Ancient Religion and The Druid Way Made Easy
