Get Involved

If you like gathering together for friendship, support and exchange, the Order and its members have created a whole range of ways to fulfil these aims - there are seed-groups and groves, facebook groups, a lively message board with public and private forums, weekly live videocasts, a monthly podcast, camps, and other gatherings.

Many members join the Order and follow the course without ever meeting other members – either because they prefer to be solitary (sometimes calling themselves ‘hedge-druids’) or because they are geographically far away from other members. Members often say that they are not usually the ‘joining type’ but still feel drawn to join the Order. Others like gathering together for friendship, support and exchange, and the Order and its members have created a whole range of ways to fulfil these aims: virtually in The Druid Hearth on this website (with a wide range of community features), and physically in Seed Groups and Groves, camps and gatherings, retreats and assemblies.

The Druid Hearth contains a wealth of interactive features to help you with your training as well as keep you engaged in the OBOD community.
