The Seed Group of the Oak and Eagle is a relaxed gathering for interested individuals to study, discuss, and practice Druidry in a safe, friendly, and receptive environment. Druidry is a way of experiencing and connecting with the natural world and other beings in a style and manner associated with the ancient Celtic culture that spanned northern Europe for thousands of years. Elements of Druidry can still be found in modern cultural and spiritual traditions. The study of Druidry compliments many other spiritual paths, and we welcome this diversity in our group. We are affiliated with the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD)—an international order based in the United Kingdom—and use the OBOD material as the basis for our practice. However, while we find the OBOD courses and material rich in depth and spiritually inspiring, we do not require OBOD membership in order to join and participate with the Seed Group. To find out more on OBOD and Druidry, see the OBOD website at www.druidry.org. We are an active group, celebrating the eight annual solar holidays (the wheel of the year) and each full moon. The solar holidays are open to the public, and the lunar events are open to Seed Group members. We hold occasional eisteddfods (artistic sessions) where group members share poetry, music, and art; and also participate in several annual events that support the local Pagan community. In addition to the annual OBOD East Coast Gathering, there are a number of purely social functions we organize for fun--such as trips to local parks or monuments, renaissance fairs, cultural festivals, and camping sites.
