Adopting Druidry In The Modern World

We’ve all had a long day at the office, only to be stuck in traffic for hours on end, and by the time that we get home, we long to escape from it all and live out in the forest.

Unfortunately, and much to the surprise of many, living out in the forests is not as easy as it seems, and it can be a hard and difficult life that most are not really prepared for.

That does not mean, however, that we cannot take the core tenets of Druidry and incorporate them into our modern lives to find a greater sense of peace and belonging.

Druidry is not about giving up all of our possessions and modern way of living and escaping into the wilderness, but rather about developing a certain sense of understanding about the nature around us and using that understanding to enhance our own lives.

Let’s look at some of the ways that the average person can begin to incorporate Druidry into everyday life.

Go Into Nature Often

The big city usually doesn’t have a lot of nature present. There are birds and local parks, but these are not quite the same as an indigenous forest, especially one that has been around for thousands of years.

Most druids will form a deep and powerful connection with the nature around them once they are in a natural setting and being able to establish that connection is important to understanding the tenets of Druidry and why they are important.

Taking time out once a week or even every few months to head out to a local national park or private reserve and spending some time in nature is a great way to start on the Druidic journey and creating that bond with the natural world that is so important.

Build A Community

One of the advantages of living in a large city is that there will undoubtedly be other people that share a similar mindset. Following a more druid-centric lifestyle can be quite lonely when there’s no one else to share it with, so fostering connections with like-minded people can make the experience that much more enjoyable and special.

The easiest way to go about doing this is by searching through local social media pages and forums, and if nothing is found, it might be worth creating a new one entirely.

There will always be people out there wanting to improve their lives by living more in tune with the natural world and by adopting the beliefs that are held by the druids, even if it means just sitting down and spending some time on with friends.

Read Druidry Books

Over the years, as Druidry has entered into the modern world, many experienced druids have written books to help newcomers adopt the Druidic way of thinking and incorporate it into their lives.

Along with the research that can be found online, it’s also worth seeking out some of the more prominent books on the market and using the valuable information they provide to start along the Druidic path.
