Druidry is a modern nature-based spirituality inspired by what we know of the ancient Druids of the ancient Celts of Britain, Ireland and some parts of Europe. Druidic wisdom informs how we can connect to the sacred landscape no matter where we are in the world. In my book Australian Druidry I explore how we can apply this wisdom to the Australian landscape, its seasons, animal and plant wisdom, and how it can spark our creativity through ritual practices.
We practice Australian Druidry with respect for the First Nations people of these lands; their Countries, cultures, art and history. We also pay respects to the Elders, past and present, to those yet to come, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our communities.
For more on this topic, see my book Australian Druidry: Connecting with the Sacred Landscape. also see my blog and public events with The Blue Mountains Seed Group at www.juliebrett.net and my podcast series, Forest Spirituality with Julie Brett.
Belonging to the Earth
My second book where I explore how the nature spirituality community is responding to the climate crisis and other natural disasters both man-made and natural. I share personal experiences and stories of ritual and healing, as well as conversations with First Nations community leaders who generously take time to share with non-Indigenous people about how we call all care for the Earth together. The Earth doesn't belong to us. We belong to the Earth. And as she goes through changes, so do we.
With many thanks to the contributors: Jo Clancy, Kristoffer Hughes, David King, Bruce and Patricia Shillingsworth, and Peter Williams. A portion of the profits from the sale of this book goes to the contributors and their projects.
