Hi I’m Herne Wyldwood.
I am an artist, author and Druid. I have been studying and practicing Druidry for over 20 years and have a keen interest in the ancient origins of Britains native spiritual tradition, from its possible roots in Vedic religion to today’s multifaceted interpretations. I do not believe that somebody following a Druid path is required to follow Celtic Paganism, or to be religious at all for that matter, however I feel it is important for the student to understand the one sacred truth that binds us all together; We are all one, that all faiths stem from one root, all Gods are a manifestation of the great divine consciousness that is also within ourselves. Equality, tolerance, understanding and compassion are paramount.
I practice Yoga as described in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. I venerate the Gods of the ancient Celtic religion, although I understand and honour their manifestations in all religions and I enjoy discussing these manifestations as I feel that showing common ground is important in a world in which there are many who seek to emphasise our differences and use this to cause conflict.
