When we hear the word druids, we may envision people in white drapey gowns who have mystical powers and a deep connection to the earth. Druidism is deemed a shamanic religion that combines their bond with the spirit world and love for holistic herbs for healing. They were Celtic teachers, scholars, priests, and judges who were both male and female. Records are not really clean, but it’s thought that they date back to either the first or third century B.C.
When we hear the word Celt, (which means knower of the oak) we immediately relate it to people living in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Ancient ones spoke Drueidan or Daelic reflecting on their area. They also had specific beliefs, traditions, literature, music, and art, but did not record their practices. Everything was handed down by word of mouth. Today, there are modern druids Neo-Druids, who still practice connecting to nature and choose to live a peaceful life.
