Druid College UK

Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Little Baddow, England
Key Contact: Joanna van der Hoeve

Spiritual Path: Druid
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Teaching Available




Group Overview: The Druid College is dedicated:
to Earth-centered spirituality,
to the integrity of our natural home, and
to the crafting of sacred relationship.


In short, The College devotes its presence—and it is its sole intent—to prepare priests of Nature.


Foundations for this life-long journey are established by a three-year, intensive study. Unlike contemporary universities, Druid studies are furthered not only by personal reflection but primarily by ongoing personal connection and spiritual guidance of (i.e., apprenticeship to) a Druid Priest. In Suffolk, UK as of 2015, those people are Joanna van der Hoeven and Robin Herne.


Being a priest of nature does not mean being an intermediary, but instead living a life in service, crafting a sacred relationship with the land, the ancestors and the gods. It requires service to the community as well as the land, wherein the priest acts as guide, witness or celebrant to a journey or journeys of crafting sacred relationship.


There are many Druid Orders and other pagan and earth-based organizations that offer solid training within their respective traditions. The Druid College is for those who wish to journey further. We wish to work with those who want to be 'carriers' of Nature-based spirituality - as compared to 'followers'. We saw a need for a programme for people who desire to go deeper, for those who wish to be in service, to fill the role of priest for their community and the land they dwell in.


The College accepts as first-year apprentices people of all walks and intent. The focus the first year is on the fundamentals of Druidry and reweaving our personal connection to Earth and to our ancestors and heritage. The College does not expect the beginning apprentice to fully know all of the shape of their spiritual path, but it does want the incoming apprentice to commit to the journey of discovery. This program will be of value to anyone walking a Nature-based path. Commitment to the full programme is not required in order to join in the first year of training.


Our second year training is reserved for those who desire to continue their journey into the priesthood, to step into the role of priests of Nature, to serve the land and its people. Our programme is one of preparing people to be in service, such as prison ministry, working with the dying, or being a priest of the land, offering healing where there is desecration. While most programmes are for those wanting to take a journey in personal exploration, the full Druid College programme is for those who have journeyed and discovered they are ready to take up the mantle of service, to be a priest of Nature. Within service we find freedom, freedom of expression and sacred relationship.


The Druid College is not an accredited college and offers no degree programme.
