Imagine you arrive in a forest clearing, a sacred grove, and are invited to sit around a fire with a group of friendly people of all ages from all over the world who have felt called to be here – to share stories, to listen deeply to each other, listening to the sounds of the fire and Nature all around them. You have arrived at The Druid Hearth.

Here you can sense the presence of the Ancestors, who love this Earth and who want to preserve and protect all of Nature. You can sense animals and birds – all the creatures and plants of the forest.

Members of the Order arrange gatherings like this all around the world through over 300 Seed-Groups and Groves.

We’ve also managed to create a gathering place like this online too – The Druid Hearth – where you can connect with other members, participate in circles that focus on specific topics, join in live-streamed events and workshops, and much more.

Once you join the Order you are given access to the Druid Hearth and our distance-learning training programme, available in English, French, Dutch, German, Italian and Portuguese. You can move between studying the films, exercises, meditations, poetry, story-telling and teachings of this course, and the social area of the Hearth – gathering around the fire, meeting others, learning about upcoming events, reading the latest issues of our magazines. You can dive into their archives, communicate with your personal mentor, and find your nearest group in the Groups Directory, or start one yourself with our help.

Or you can drop into one of the circles that has called to you: there are groups that focus on Bardic, Ovate or Druid topics, and ones for Tarot, Astrology, Healing, Herbalism, Culinary, Apothecary, and Alchemical Arts, Divination, Neurodivergence, Books and Reading, Dreamwork, Professional Educators, Mental Health Professionals, LGBTQIA members, Visual Arts, Poetry and Writing – over 50 of them. And you can always start your own circle!
