The Druid Path
Druids of the Three Realms:
- Cultivate a personal druidic practice that shapes their own lives and out of which each contributes to the life of the Grove and the Order.
- Cultivate Druidic practices in the Telluric path, the Solar path, and the Mystic path.
- Practice the Telluric Path working with the Earth in any of many, many ways, but singularly in ways that allow one to say that one is in a vital relationship with “Earth, our mother”.
- Practice the Solar Path keeping the festivals and days of the Celtic year: Samhain, Alban Arthuan, Imbolc, Alban Eiler, Beltane, Alban Heruin, Lughnasad, and Alban Elued as well as individual ritual work that one cultivates on one’s own path.
- Practice forms of meditation that allow them to weave together and integrate what they are learning, experiencing and envisioning on their paths.
- Take on specialized work and study, sometimes called spirals or tools or callings that become a means by which the Druid shares his/her life with the grove, the order and the world. These may include but are not limited to: poetry or writing, music, divination, healing arts, magic, sacred geometry, working with the earth in varied ways (e.g. sustainability projects, recycling, etc) or earth-mysteries and sacred sites, justice work, spiritual direction or spiritual counseling. Each of these specialized works, studies or even “callings” necessarily relate to and incorporate many aspects of the Telluric, Solar and Mystic paths, and find their balance in the Three: Nwyfre (Nem), Calas (Talam) and Gwar (Muir).
