‘World Druidry: A Globalizing Path of Nature Spirituality’ E-Book Launch

April 21st, 2023
It has been nearly two years since OBOD member and Mt Haemus Scholar Dr Larisa E. White completed her work on ‘World Druidry: A Globalizing Path of Nature Spirituality‘, presenting the findings of the World Druidry Survey of 2018-2020 in hardcover and paperback forms. In case memory fails, the World Druidry Survey was the first (and to this day, remains the only) large-scale sociological study of the lives, beliefs, and ritual/devotional practices of modern-day Druids from around the world. The findings (based on in-depth survey/interviews with 725 Druids from 34 countries and 147 different Druid groups) were released in book form back in 2021, with a subset of them simultaneously published as a Mount Haemus paper. There has also been a film.

The physical books were designed and priced for an anticipated academic/scholarly/library audience, rather than for regular, every-day Druids. The goal was to offer the world a solid source of information about modern Druids, to combat the widely-circulated myths and misinformation about our tradition. In this, it was successful. The book has gotten a couple of great reviews in peer-reviewed journals, has been added to the recommended reading lists for several university courses, as well as finding a place in half a dozen top-tier university libraries over here in the USA — including Harvard and Princeton.

However, since its publication, Larisa have received many requests from fellow Druids for the book to be released in electronic form, as the costs of book manufacturing and international shipping (both monetarily, and in terms of carbon-footprint) — not to mention the import/export tariffs — were simply too much of a burden for too many practicing Druids. So, Larisa went back to school and learned how to make ebooks of comparable quality to the physical editions.

World Druidry: A Globalizing Path of Spirituality is now available for pre-order as an e-book, and will be released on May 1, 2023, on the following platforms:
