I’m hoping some of my Druid readers have followed me over from the old blog, because I need your insight…
I know that on paper, at least some of the major Druid Revival-descended orders (OBOD, AODA) are not strictly Celtic-focused, and state explicitly that many personal theologies are welcome. I’m wondering, however, how that actually works out in practice?
I feel absolutely no call from or pull towards any of the Celtic deities, and the mythology only interests me to the extent that *all* mythologies do (that is to say, at least a bit, but only academically)… but I do feel strongly called to the Revival Druid tradition, for all the reasons I outlined previously. How much of a problem is this likely to be, really – or is it? My formal experience of Druidry is only of ADF, which is quite different from the Revival style of Druidry, and briefly with an OBOD seed group that did little more together (formally, at least) than perform the eightfold rituals.
Any thoughts or insights will be very helpful!
