    Hello from the beginning of my path!

    Hello! I'm just recently starting on my path of Druidry. Here's the back story in case anyone is interested.

    I had long been feeling a disconnect from the religion I was raised in, Christianity (Lutheran), and getting away from church/any kind of spirituality. I felt the most spirituality when I was out in nature, mostly hiking in the mountains. I've also felt very drawn to Gaelic culture as I learned more about my genealogy and ancestors and was exposed to the music of Ireland, Scotland, and other areas of Britain. I began researching neo-Pagan beliefs and practices and zeroed in on Druidry for its focus on nature and ancestors.

    I'm very much a beginner and just starting to learn and work my path. There aren't many Pagan groups in my area, with most have a specific non-Druid focus, and I'm very in closet because most of my friends and family would not be accepting of my choice. So that's why I'm here: to connect with and learn from others in the community I'm not quite able to find in person just yet.

    On a personal note, my profession of atmospheric science is a huge part of my life, and I also enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, camping, genealogy, beer tasting, and crocheting, among many other interests!
