Welcome to the online home of the Tribe of the Oak Druid Grove. This group is by invitation only, please request to join the group if you are seriously seeking to be a member of the Grove.
We are the “People of the Oak”. Oak trees are sacred to all cultures across the European continent and sacred to all cultures that these magnificent trees dwell in.
We have gathered together here to help connect our thoughts and our ideas. We discuss the books we are reading and share resources, rites, and the ideas and inspirations of our collective Grove energy.
“Think of the Bards as Lore, learning the songs and stories of our ancestors, the lineages of great lords and kings, and the wisdom sayings of the people. Think of the Vates as Math: learning the relationship between numbers, pattern recognition, and using those skills for divination and tracking of the animals, stars, birds, as well as the seas. Now think of the Druids as Law: the judges, barristers, legislators, and mediators.”
– Ellen, in a a dream-vision had by Luis A. Valadez [Oracle] in which he and I had a conversation about Bards, Ovates, and Druids
