Covid-19- Fall 2021
Many people are looking for local groups, and disappointed that they do not appear ‘active’.
Please be aware that most groups remain subject to state and local Covid-19 health orders, and they may not be meeting. Additionally, organizers are attending to altered work, childcare, or other family commitments during this trying time.
Check again with the map listing contact after some time, to ascertain their future status.
Not every gathering of Druids (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. Private or clearly inactive groups are not shown on the map.
Ask about 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 will evaluate these folks, most 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 listings 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 local grove or study group that meets in-person, and regularly for activities outside of their educational program).
Gaming or role-play groups.
Cyber or internet-only gatherings.
Private groups (includes groups that are not already on the internet).
People outside of North America.
Pan-pagan groups that follow some other tradition as their primary path. This includes ‘ecumenical’, Pagan Pride, or festival groups.
Malicious webpages, such as 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)
