Course description

The Druidism Diploma Course jumps straight into the subject, by defining what it means to be a modern-day Druid, highlighting the connection to its ancient Celtic past and how this has informed certain foundational beliefs today. You’ll be presented with its history, its role in Arthurian lore, and the modern-day Druids’ openness to new and ever-changing spiritual ideas.

From this base of understanding, you’ll discover how today’s Druids take the teachings of the past and apply them to modern practice. You will explore the idea of ethical living from a Druidic perspective, and be introduced to concepts such as Awen and having reverence for our ancestors.

Through the Druidism Diploma Course, you’ll learn what magic means to today’s practising Druids, as you are introduced to shape-shifting, weather magic, and herb magic. You’ll also learn about the many divination methods that Druids used and how modern Druids continue this ancient skill, with particular emphasis on reading ogham and the runes.

You’ll explore three of the primary reasons that meditation is used in Druidry. You’ll be taught specific exercises that can help in preparing you for meditation, as well as being introduced to a Druid Meditation that is often used today. The course defines what is meant by land and plant spirits and guides you in using meditation and ritual to lay the foundation for genuine and long-lasting communication.

As a practising Druid, you should understand the eight main Druid festivals. The Druidism Diploma Course guides you through each - highlighting their importance to the Druid tradition, as well as offering simple ways for a solitary Druid (or one who is not aligned with a specific grove or order) to mark these important dates. You’ll also be guided through performing a ritual from start to finish while leaving room for you to define the steps of the ritual in your own way.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Be able to begin your journey on the Druid Path
  • Know the essential elements of being a modern-day Druid
  • Have a deeper understanding of the history of the Druids
  • Adapt to ancient Druid magic in a modern way
