About the author:
The Ancient Order of Druids in America is a modern Druid order drawing its inspiration and many of its teachings from the Druid Revival of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Like other modern Druid groups, the AODA evolved out of a three-hundred-year-old movement, the Druid Revival, that found the fragmentary legacy of the ancient Druids a powerful source of inspiration and insight, and drew on a wide range of sources in shaping a nature spirituality to meet the challenges of today. More about the AODA can be found on our website:

Trilithon: The Journal of the Ancient Order of Druids in America

Volume III: Summer Solstice 2016

Authored by Ancient Order of Druids in America

Our third volume of Trilithon: The Journal of the Ancient Order of Druids in America features interviews with Archdruids Emeriti John Michael Greer and Sara Greer and with our new Grand Archrduid, Gordon Cooper. Beyond our interviews, we are proud to be publishing a number of unique pieces of Druid scholarship. These include Archdruid of Fire Adam Robersmith’s Druid Adept project, titled “Grounding Through Heaven and Earth: An Introduction to the Nine Hazels Qigong.” This piece is an adaptation of the traditional Qigong movements to Druid practice. We also have the second installment of Tracy Glomski’s “Mabinogi Skies” series that explores the astronomical aspects of the Mabinogion. It encourages us to look to the skies to connect to ancient wisdom and knowledge and offers an original scholarly interpretation based on astronomy. We also have “Th e Song of St. Margaret” by Christian Brunner, which translates and analyzes a poem from the remote areas of Switzerland and Austria and demonstrates its connections to ancient traditions. Dana O'Driscoll's “Sacred Sites in America” re-envisions the sacred site for an American Druid context and suggests ways of creating many different kinds of sacred sites. Daniel Cureton’s “Saving Our History: Creating Pagan Archives” explores how to create digital and print archives of materials that can help establish a stronger history for alternative spirituality movements. Finally, Rick Derks shares his insights on staff creation. We also have three pieces that have some connection to gardening and ceremony—Claire Schosser’s “Ecology and Spirituality in the Vegetable Garden” provides insights not only on key gardening methods and her expert analysis of their efficacy, but also spiritual practices for the garden. Maxine Rogers shares her experiences in wassailing her apple orchard, and Will Harrington shares his own gardening insights. As a final offering for this 240 page packed issue, we are reprinting a lost Druid Revival pamphlet titled The Druids and Theosophy by Peter Freeman, which is not available anywhere else at this time.
