The Path of the Druid

Overview of the Green Mountain Druid School

Druid online classes will occur on Tuesday eves from 7-8:30pm. 
The first one will be March 12th. See the table below for the full schedule of online classes. All classes will be recorded so you can watch later if you have to miss one.

Fearn will teach one class per month, and the other monthly class will be taught by another GMDS graduate, TBA…

Classes will be a blend of didactic, with engagement thru guided ritual and practice, as well as Q & A and sharing time.

PLUS, there will be two Dreamland Immersion weekends per grade; one in spring and one in fall. These will involve lots of juicy practices to connect with each other, with the staff, with the land and with Spirit.

Ritual, ceremony, time in Nature and in the temples, sharing circles, meal times, etc.
The dates for the Druid Immersions in 2024 are: June 7-9, and Sept.18-20 (leading into Druid Camp)

You will be sharing space with the Bard grade students. We will begin at 6pm on the first day and complete by 5pm on the last day of each. We scheduled the fall weekend to lead right into our annual Druid Camp so you can stick around for more AWENsomeness!

Firewalk! this potent initiation on the Path of the Ovate was delayed due to rain last year.  This year, it will be offered at Dreamland on July 6th with a rain date of July 20th.  It is not required. This ceremony is offered by donation and will be open to all members of the GMDO.

Druid Camp is open to all of the Order and larger public, and is put on by the most recent graduating clan of GMDS students.  Click here to get a flavor of  last year’s Druid Camp. 

Druid buddy system– 2 or more students may choose to support each other in accountability by checking in and/or meeting up to practice regularly.

Mentorship– you are encouraged to practice mentorship in your Druid grade and beyond!  Mentoring may be offered to the Bards and Ovates in groups or singly; in person or virtually; regularly or as needed. 

Temple Time–  Every Sunday at Dreamland from 2-6pm students are invited to spend time on the land. TempleTime is limited to GMDO members- students and grads. It can include personal or group ritual and practice, sharing, mentoring, journeys and meditation.  These times are open and self guided, with no formal schedule or plan, unless folks make it happen.

Ivan writes:  Once a student has fully completed their Ovate study, and has attained the necessary transformation, they are initiated into the Druid Grade. This initiation awakens their empowerment as a magical, manifesting human being. At this point in their training the budding Druid starts to hone and develop their increasing powers with focus and finesse. A new sense of empowerment triggers them to activate and integrate their life and skills for the benefit of their community, in service and healing of the world at large. Someone wise once said, “Power belongs to those who use it.” The Druid starts to exercise their power to make their dreams come true for the benefit of all beings.

The Druid student learns how to teach, both by instruction and by example, and inspiring others as a role model. They become a mentor for others. They start to manifest their dreams, and the dreams of the planet – for they are starting to align, and are in fact the same. In his Druid year they learn about leadership, and assuming the authority of Spirit in their community.

They learn about the ceremonies and teachings that keep a community healthy, especially Rites of Passage. They learn the skills of the priest or priestex, and how to officiate at ceremonies and gatherings.

After the three year training, there is only one consideration: how far will the Druid be able to travel along the path of their unique, unfolding destiny during this life? There are still initiations to undergo along this path, just as the universe is infinite, and one major motivation of the Druid is to become as aware and as whole a person as possible in the time that is allotted them. While they still have breath in their body, they thrill with joy and gratitude for this great gift of life they have been given, and strives to use every moment of their priceless time with awareness and celebration.

Druids engage in 4 main areas of practice:

  • Geomancy
  • Leadership
  • Community Service
  • Embodying the Divine

In their own time, they must design, build, dedicate and then use a temple of their own choice. They also hunt a wound or draining habit and learn how to transform it, and then they research a god or goddess they wish to channel, create deep relationship with him or her, and then, in ceremony, become that Divine being in sacred service to the community.

The Druid lives a balanced life, living in a physical body, which they open up for Spirit. They recognize themself as a bridge connecting Above with Below, and dedicates themself to keeping a healthy flow of energy between these two extremes. Most of all, they understand that they must become an authentic, whole being who walks their talk, sharing their considerable energy and skills with the world. This invariably liberates magic and joy in their life. In this way they find their freedom.


The three years’ of Druid Training is only the start of the student’s study, which actually never ends. By the end of the training, however, the Druid will have received all the techniques and teachings necessary for enlightenment and freedom; all they have to do is to put them into practice, and live an impeccable life.

Life is a mystery, for we will never figure it out: it is here to be lived and experienced to the utmost. The more aware we become, the greater the capacity we have to live on the frontiers of the Known, blazing our unique and individual trail through the universe. What a challenge! What a joy!
