The Book of Druidry

A Complete Introduction to the Magic & Wisdom of the Celtic Mysteries

Discover the Dappled Grove of Druidry

Renowned author Kristoffer Hughes paints a comprehensive picture of Druidry—where it came from, how it developed into its current form, and why it is relevant today. Hughes shares not only the nuts and bolts of practice, but also its ethics, environmental considerations, and deep roots in history.

Druids are defined by what they do, and this book offers many ways to put Druidic theory into action. Explore what it means to talk with trees, answer the call of wild awakening, honor the ancestors, and work with deities. Use prayer, meditation, and ritual to expand your awareness, develop relationships with the unseen, and engage with elemental powers. Providing powerful Celtic wisdom, this book helps you connect with Awen, the blessed breath of inspiration.
