Website Profile: Avalon Druid Order (ADO) is an international membership organisation teaching the *Root Wisdoms* of the Druid Branch of the Avalon Mystery Tradition by following the beliefs, values, ethics, customs, and worldview of our far ancestors as they find expression today.
Avalonian Druidry is inclusive, egalitarian, and centred on strong bonds of friendship, family and community. The tradition is taught within three Circles of Wisdom:
- Hearth (Women's Mysteries)
- Henge (Men's Mysteries)
- Grove (Mysteries of Union, spiritual community)
Wherever possible, local Groves hold both open and private events throughout the sacred year. For those who cannot travel to meet with other members, fellowship may be found through correspondence. As a spiritual community, we honour our commitments to one another: all members are expected to actively participate in the life of the Order by learning, practicing, and sharing its beliefs, customs, and ways together.
The primary focuses of Avalonian Druidry are (1) healing and rebalancing the Self, (2) fostering our form of Druidism within the context of a strong spiritual community, and (3) cooperative spiritual stewardship of Creation. We remain a primarily oral tradition, teaching through the sharing of spoken lore, hunting (or 'questing') , by direct observation of others within our community, and by apprenticeship with mentoring Elders. While we hold conventional academia in great respect, we give primacy to the lore that is our inheritance from the ancestors, and our legacy to those to come.
This traditional approach is not suited to everyone. We are not a religion of clergy. There is room in our community for both dedicants and their loved ones. Applicants must pass an introductory course to be accepted as Lifetime Members of ADO's Tribes. Traditional methods and standards also apply for those aspiring to become Druids. Druid candidates must demonstrate a consistent commitment to Avalonian Druidry, the Order, and its spiritual community. If you find traditional approaches and methods intriguing, exciting, non-threatening, and personally satisfying, then ADO may be perfect for you!
If you are ready to answer the call to Avalon in fact as well as in image, then come you in with an open mind and heart and you will be likewise met:
