Awen’s Light Grove is an official Grove of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, ( established in January of 2007 in Central NC.

The founder of this group is an OBOD Druid grade member who joined the order in 2005.  Most of our participants are OBOD members, (enrolled or have completed one of the three grades) in the OBOD course.  Membership in OBOD is not required to attend Meetup events. However, anyone who wants to be a voting member who helps set the organization's structure and finances, must be enrolled or completed the OBOD course and pay $25 annual dues through our not-for-profit financial arm, Friends of the Grove.

We meet monthly in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area and discuss druid spiritual growth, environmental concerns and drive actions that improve the ecological condition of our communities.

The goal of ALG is to:

* Support the modern druid in his/her spiritual growth through the OBOD path

* Help make a difference by honoring our ecological values, and

* Celebrating the Wheel of the Year through druid ceremony and ritual.

If you are interested in learning more about druidry and meeting others with similar interest, or if you are already an OBOD member looking for a home grove, drop us a note and attend our next meetup!
