Existing Druid Organizations
None of these have incorporated the new archeological information presented on this website. Whether they choose to do so remains to be seen. Today they are all essentially Green Witchcraft groups using Neo-Druid jargon although they all started out with the hope that their practices could be eventually rooted in real historical Druidry.
Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD)
(Copied from their website June, 2022) OBOD – The Order of Bards Ovates & Druids – is a mystery school, a community around the world, who love nature and want to follow a magical, spiritual way that respects and protects the natural world in all its beauty. Members work with spiritual teachings that combine the inspiration of the ancient druids and the old stories with contemporary scholarship and insights into the relationship between human beings and the world of plants and animals, stars and stones. On this site you’ll find hundreds of articles on Druidry and Druid Lore, Nature Spirituality, Gods & Goddesses, contributions from members, and much more.
Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA)
(Copied from their website June, 2022) The AODA is a traditional Druid order rooted in the Druid Revival movement of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We walk a path of nature spirituality and inner transformation founded on personal experience and reconnection with the living earth. Our work offers an opportunity for modern people to experience the teachings and practices of Druidry in today’s world.
AODA understands Druidry as a path of nature spirituality and inner transformation founded on personal experience rather than dogmatic belief. It welcomes people of all national origins, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, races, genders, abilities, and affiliations with other Druidic and spiritual traditions. Ecological awareness and commitment to an earth-honoring lifestyle, celebration of the cycles of nature through seasonal ritual, and personal development through meditation and other spiritual exercises form the core of its work, and involvement in the arts, natural sciences, and traditional esoteric studies are among its applications and expressions.
Founded in 1912 as a branch of the Ancient and Archaeological Order of Druids, today, AODA is a 501(c)3 religious non-profit organization based in the United States that serves to benefit its members and the living earth.
Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF)
(Copied from their website June, 2022) Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (ADF) is a Pagan church based on ancient Indo-European traditions expressed through public worship, study, and fellowship.
We are a modern tradition of neopagan Druidry. Although our name is Irish, we incorporate practices from ancient and modern Indo-European cultures including the traditions of Celtic and Norse cultures, Slavic, Baltic, Greek, Roman, Persian, Vedic, and other cultures.
Our modern practices include elements from historical documents and studies along with modern components to create a practice that works for this age while respecting and honoring the past. Together, we are creating a non-sexist, anti-racist, inclusive, publicly available religion for this, and future, generations.
Founded in 1983 by a group of Druids influenced by the New Reformed Druids of North America (NRDNA) from California and New York State, we have worked to create a tradition of group and solitary practices with members around the world.
Our groves offer regular public rituals to local pagans as well as online. There are regular online rituals where solitary practitioners can gather and worship together.
Our trained clergy as well as our experienced members offer weddings, funerals, child blessings and more to their communities.
We encourage individuals who wish to develop skills in the arts, in ritual, in scholarship, and more. And we welcome all who are interested in working within our paradigms.
