Druidry & Meditation

Cae Mabon in Snowdonia - Ideal for a Druid Meditaton Retreat

Meditation can bring peace to the heart, calm and inspiration to the restless mind, and healing to the body. While some meditation methods seek to transcend the body, Druids use meditation to honour the physical realm, to deepen their awareness of its sacredness and needs, and to deepen their sense of connection to all life, whether embodied or Otherworldly.

In using meditation to enter the Otherworld, Druids use techniques of inner journeying, including methods now known as shamanic. In using meditation to deepen their sense of presence and awareness, Druids use a variety of methods often including relaxation techniques combined with focussed awareness on the body or breath.

A central symbol for the Druid is a tree, which is often used in meditation. Powerful and peaceful, still and yet fully alive, the tree breathes in and out, acting in service to all of life. Learn a tree meditation here.

Meditation is taught In the Order’s training course, and is practised on Order retreats, gatherings and workshops. In addition two audio collections of meditations are available for download from itunes, Amazon and CDBaby: Wild Wisdom Meditations and Sacred Nature.
