The Nemeton Drus

Sylvan Celtic Fellowship
Sylvan Celtic Fellowship is a Celto-Druidic group dedicated to creating a Celtic hearth based culture and Druids to serve it. They do not define their spiritual practice as “Druidism” since not everyone who practices it would consider themselves in the role of Druid. They have crafted their own take on modern Celtic spiritual practice which we refer to it as “The Sylvan Way” which is a modern Celtic polytheism. It is meant to be as inclusive as possible and is based on certain aspects of neo-druidism and Celtic Reconstructionism.


Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD) 
This is the biggest Druid order in the world. Each month you are sent a packet with 4 (Gwersu) lessons; these are for booklets with information for you to study. Each booklet is a week’s worth of work. You get a year’s worth of work for the grade you are in. This order is less about the written tests and more about doing. You take a test at the end of each grade instead of each lesson’s end like some other orders. Everyone is welcome, no matter their religion, color, or sexuality. Welcome to all.
