My name is Michael and i am a Californian currently living in exile in Tennessee. I was drawn to druidry initially as an academic exercise. Now I'm at the point where I want a more spiritual experience. I have become disillusioned with "Big Religion" and am looking for something more personal. I have ordered the introductory packet from OBOD and am looking forward beginning a new journey.

I go by many names, my true Name is Benjamin nine times out of ten if you were to Google one of my quotes or sayings you will come up with Billythemadhatter. A friend once asked me what I she should call me, I told her, Billy shortly there after another friend felt the need to call me the Mad hatter in a sarcastic tone. I felt it only fitting to change my Facebook user name to Billythemadhatter. I was named Darian some time ago by a Druid. At the moment I am 32 years of age, I live in Bismarck North Dakota. I look forward to campfire stories and many travels to come. I bid you all a very, very many fond evenings.

My name is Michael. I have been initiated into my grove for around five months now, but have been attending circles for around a year and four months. I am 26, I live in the England, the West Midlands.
Raised Church of England, but quickly found the path wasn't mine. I stopped celebrating Christmas, and basically all Christian Holidays, but as soon as I found paganism, it fitted like a glove.
So here I am, in OBOD, at the Bardic level. I am actually happy at this level. I have always enjoyed stories. When I was younger, I always enjoyed singing also. I have come back to singing with my grove, and am working hard at increasing the amount of songs I can do off the top of my head. I started with two, that I knew from my younger days, but am now at about ten songs, two chants.

I'm not really familiar with message boards but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. I see there are few OBOD groups in New York. Any one wishing to study the runes with our ADF protogrove is welcome - see us on facebook "Paumanok Island Protogrove ADF." And of course our rituals are open. Enough of a plug, just responding to an old post I saw here asking for anyone in NY NY. I'm really looking forward on getting into OBOD and hope to make it to a camp someday. Bright Blessings!

I have been interested in the history of Britain, its languages, ancient sites and the pagan religion for quite some time. It began with my grandmother and aunt who live in north Wales now, and are both involved in tarot cards (my aunt completed a course for tarot), runes, crystals, and spirits. I was curious, and I occasionally find interesting information, and get in the mood to research more deeply. I have several books on crystals, wicca, general witchcraft and magic as a whole in Britain, given to me from them and because people knew i was interested. So of course I have heard lots of things about OBOD and only now how decided to look into it. So here I am!

I found Druidry last year, and have since joined OBOD and am thoroughly enjoying the Bardic grade. I'm a member of a Unitarian church and see Druidry as a my personal philosophy and a central source of my spirituality. I love stories, poetry, folk-music and local Sussex and Irish folklore. As a rural person I love the old country ways and the pace of life lived in close proximity to the land as the wheel of the year turns. My family come from that rain-soaked, misty, rural, 'Celtic' Northwest corner of the Iberian peninsula: Galicia, and I love to sit with my 97 year old granddad hearing the tales of old, and all the lore that has been passed down through generations. Another part of my family come from Donegal in Ireland. This year for many reasons is a time of new begninngs for me (I'm getting married this year for one ) and so beginning my journey along OBOD's Bardic path could not have come at a better time. Really happy to be here in the Druid's Head pub!

I have been drawn towards Druidry for a long time and have just come to the end of the Bardic grade. When I started the course last year I realised I had found what I had been looking for all this time. I had 'come home'. I am so much looking forward to continuing to learn, especially the herb and tree lore. I am particularly interested in herbs as I grow and use them both for culinary and medicinal purposes.
