Well, my name's Adam - I'm 28 and live in Coventry in the good old UK.
The journey towards Druidism has been gradual, but one I think is a definite one.
I grew up in a typical non-practising CofE family, and was never really bothered with a spiritual journey until my early twenties when I became fairly religious but I lost all that and became an Atheist then.
However, I've always Spiritualist views despite my religious status - my family (on both sides) has members who are very spiritual and are always getting harangued by people from "the other side" which I have a hard time disagreeing with. Even though I'm not a believer in a conscious deity, I do think there's great spiritual energy and the strong possibility of a netherworld or otherworld etc.
With the Druid path, what attracts me is the strong connection to nature and ancestors - I've always been a natural gardening and with animals (even more so than other people).
I've recently done a bit of digging on my family tree and found I have a good bit of Celtic ancestry - my surname (Williams) is Welsh and from the Bangor/Llanberis area and I've recently found out on my mum's side that my grandad was only half English - his other side is Scotch/Irish!
I'd live to explore the path of Druidry some more, eventually settling on the Bards course when finances are stable. I'd also love to learn about my British heritage and explore our fantastic history and myth/legend.
Welcome Adam! Cheers right back to ya!
