Covid-19- May 2020
Many people are looking for local groups, and disappointed that they do not appear ‘active’.
Please be aware that most group leaders are complying with state and local Covid-19 health orders and are not meeting presently. Additionally, many group contacts are attending to altered work, childcare, or other family commitments during this trying time.
Please try contacting groups again after some time, to ascertain their actual status.
Not every Druid group (or order) is public, so there will be many private groups that are not on this map. Most orders provide information on their groups, but there also are some who do not so their private groups are not listed. If a group is clearly inactive (like many Yahoo groups), they are also not included.
Contact each group for their meeting requirements – just because a group has information available on the internet doesn’t necessarily mean you can immediately come to business meetings, a festival, or ritual. Just as you should be checking out any group you are looking into, most groups will also want to learn about you.
If people want to research and send me information on groups in Greenland (while included in the North American continent, it is part of the Kingdom of Denmark) or in South America, let me know and we can talk about expanding the map. You would need to contact me in English, and check for new groups a few times a year, like I do now.
I do my best to use the public information that both orders and groups provide, and I don’t want to mislead anyone about an individual group’s affiliation. (And I have had one instance where the order in question appreciated the ‘self-reported’ comment.)
Druid distance or in-house training programs (unless associated with a group that meets regularly for other activities).
Gaming or role-play groups.
Cyber or internet-only groups.
Private groups (includes groups that are not already on the internet).
Groups outside of North America.
Obviously inactive groups.
Pan-pagan groups that follow some other tradition as their primary path. This includes ‘ecumenical’, Pagan Pride, or festival groups.
Groups whose webpages are attack sites.
New groups, or those I have not found yet.
Just let me know the:
- Group name
- Town, state, and country
- Internet link with contact info (order webpage, Facebook, Witchvox, Yahoo Group, website, etc. listing)
- Affiliation (if any)
