Deity and Mythology

Stone of Brodgar

This section of the website aims to be an exploration of the many ways that druids work with deity and of the mythology and stories which describe our relationships with the gods.

It has been said that there are as many interpretations of the gods as there are druids and to this end, these pages do not aim to seek consensus. Each druid finds his or her own path into relationship with deity and here we intend to show a celebration of this diversity.
