For a while now, I’ve been considering what type of Druid organization I’d like to join. I’ve narrowed it down to the British Druid Order (BDO) and Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF). The OBOD didn’t appeal to me and neither did the AODA.
I’m very interested in Germanic paganism but Heathenry has never felt quite right to me for reason’s I cannot explain. I’m also interested in Kemeticism. I’d like a very earth based, animistic practice. I know that my Germanic tendencies would be welcomed among the ADF but my Kemetic practices would not. The BDO however seems very earth based but draws a lot from Celtic mythology and practices (Celtic deities have never appealed to me). Not to mention the cost of their courses varies considerably, the ADF is quite cheap whilst the BDO is very expensive. There are pros and cons to both.
I’m unsure of which direction to take. What would you recommend for somebody like me? I value any advice you could give me.
