Curious how many like myself, do not feel the need for, Pageantry, Robes / Chains of rank, formal Litanies or even Holly Days. To be in contact with the Druid within you, the spirit of the ancient Oak or the call of the Ley?
Tthey do have their purposes. I often use all of them.
What got me wondering was a post asking to help with a one lesson class on what a Druid is.
For me all of these things are tools and respects, but the Druid Root is deeper then the Order or The Way.
Ritual has its purpose as do formal training but it is Soul that rides the Ley.
