Ancestors are part of our shared humanity, we all have them. Ancestry in the guise of race, has been used as a tool to divide. Even so, it might yet help us move in greater harmony. Are we playing out the motifs of our family history, or making our own lives? Are we held back by the past, or empowered by it? And why does any of this matter? Druidry and the Ancestors will take you on a journey into how you imagine yourself, and how you can take control of your identity and future. Druid, author, bard and dreamer. Nimue Brown is OBOD trained, a founding member of Bards of The Lost Forest and Druid Network member.

Druidry is a wonderful, spiritually fulfilling life path. Through the magic that is Druidry, we build deep and abiding relationships with the natural world around us, and through our connection to the natural environment we walk a path of truth, honour and service. We aim to immerse ourselves in the present moment, in the present environment, in order to share in the blessing that is the cycle of life. Throughout the ages, people have withdrawn from the world in order to connect more fully with it. This book is an introductory guide for those who wish to walk the Druid path alone, for however long a time. It is about exploration and connection with the natural world, and finding our place within it. It covers the basics of Druidry and how, when applied to the everyday life, enriches it with a sense of beauty, magic and mystery. This book is for those people who feel called to seek their own path, to use their wit and intelligence, compassion and honour to create their own tradition within Druidry.

When I started running meditation groups, I searched for a book that would tell me how to do it. There wasn’t one. Like many Pagans, I hate dogma and resent being told exactly what to do. But at the same time, like everyone starting out on something new, I wanted a frame to hang my work from. I learned the hard, slow way. Druidry and Meditation is a guide for Druids who want to meditate. It explores meditation for the body, the intellect, the emotions and for spiritual practice. There are plenty of easy to follow exercises, along with prompts about how to develop your own work from there, held by a philosophical framework. I’ve included sample pathworkings to get people started, and a detailed explanation of how to construct your own. There’s a chapter on how to run a meditation group – covering practical issues as well as the art of writing for groups and the technicalities of guiding. I’ve also included a section on how to incorporate meditation into group ritual, covering practical issues. Druidry is a beautiful, multifaceted, non-dogmatic spirituality. Every aspect of Druidry can be supported with meditative work. Meditation is not Druidry and Druidry is not meditation, but the two combine to inspiring effect. Many Pagans question, all the time, how we can make our spirituality an intrinsic part of our lives. This meditative approach to Druidry is one answer to that question. Through greater self-awareness, with deep contemplation, spiritual openness and conscious nurturing of creativity, we can explore and express our Paganism in ever more rewarding ways.

When a Pagan prays, there are many uncertainties - who we pray to, what we pray for, and what might happen to us as a consequence. Not having the same structures as other religions, Pagans can't frame prayer in the same ways, and our experiences are likely to be wilder and more personal. This book is both a wide ranging exploration of what prayer means in different faith and cultures, and a personal journey into a spiritual practice.

Pagan Portals: Australian Druidry works as a supplement to the study of Druidry and other nature-based spiritual paths as practiced in Australia. The seasons, animals, plants and ancestral histories of the land in Australia are quite different from those of the Celtic lands where Druidry originates. Julie Brett discusses the difficulties of following a nature-based tradition in an environment wildly different from Druidism's place of origin, and offers practical information on how to adapt the practice of Druidry to suit the energy of the land and respect its spirits and ancestors.

Then her new neighbour, socialite archaeologist Justina Fairfax brings a curious find to see if she can reassemble it. After which the chaos begins in earnest, with mad industrialists using mortless (undead) people to power their factories, druids on a traction engine who wish to thwart them, a retired pirate who just wants a quiet life, a stilt-walking dissenting preacher, the arrival of a freak show and other improbable personages and events who emerge as the plot unravels.
