“The World Druidry Survey”

Contemporary Druidry is relatively new as a religious/spiritual path, and is still in the process of defining itself as a global movement. Several books have been written about the history of contemporary Druidry, but there is not much research, yet, focused on what it really means to be a Druid in the modern age.

The World Druidry Survey explores the ways in which Druidry, as a globalizing path of nature spirituality, is evolving both in the traditional lands of the ancient Druids, and elsewhere, as it spreads and takes root in other countries and cultures of the world. As we, the practicing Druids of the world, learn and grow and develop our personal paths of Druidry, what do we continue to hold in common? In what ways do our practices and beliefs diversify? What, if anything, forms the spiritual, common core of contemporary World Druidry?

Whether you are just beginning your journey on the Path of Druidry, or whether you have been a practicing Druid for decades, your experiences and perspective are important to this work. I hope you will share a bit of your story!

I am undertaking this study as an independent scholar and educator, with over 25 years’ experience using mixed research methods to shed light on the ways in which people learn, grow, and change, under the influence of changing educational contexts and cultures. I am also a fellow Druid, supported by a grant from the OBOD’s Mt. Haemus Awards program. The research findings from this study are to be published as part of the OBOD’s Mt. Haemus Award program, at Beltane 2021, and presented at Mt. Haemus Day 2024, in addition to other publications and venues yet to be determined.

    1. Hi Dasyre,

      The World Druidry Survey officially closed its data-gathering phase on May 1st, 2019. I am now deep into the analysis and writing phase. Results are expected to become available around Beltane, 2021, when my Mount Haemus paper (on a topic drawn from these findings) is published by the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD), and the book (with a complete analysis of all the findings from the survey) will be ready to release. I will post announcements, closer to that time, with more precise availability dates. Until then, I remain

      Yours, under the California Coast Live Oaks,
