Bright blessings and welcome to the Ancient Order of Druids in America!
The AODA is a traditional Druid order rooted in the Druid Revival movement of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We walk a path of nature spirituality and inner transformation founded on personal experience and reconnection with the living earth. Our work offers an opportunity for modern people to experience the teachings and practices of Druidry in today’s world.
AODA understands Druidry as a path of nature spirituality and inner transformation founded on personal experience rather than dogmatic belief. It welcomes people of all national origins, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, races, genders, abilities, and affiliations with other Druidic and spiritual traditions. Ecological awareness and commitment to an earth-honoring lifestyle, celebration of the cycles of nature through seasonal ritual, and personal development through meditation and other spiritual exercises form the core of its work, and involvement in the arts, natural sciences, and traditional esoteric studies are among its applications and expressions.
Founded in 1912 as a branch of the Ancient and Archaeological Order of Druids, today, AODA is a 501(c)3 religious non-profit organization based in the United States that serves to benefit its members and the living earth.
AODA is proud to provide support to these organizations working to help preserve the living Earth:
