Welcome To Oaklight.org, a site devoted to the Druid Path. Within the site you will find links to various Druid orders as well as articles and bits of recommended reading. This site was started by myself, David "Duir" Smith, in February 2008, and I would like to thank all those who have chosen to contribute to this site as well as those orders and individuals who have caused the growth in the study of Druidry as a whole.
Over the last 12 years or so I've had the chance to study Druidry and talk with many people from many different orders and I am even a member of 3 of them. I first joined the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids under the current chosen chief Phillip Carr-Gomm. After completing their course I branched out to join the ADF (Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship) founded by Rev. Isaac Bonewits and currently under the lead of Archdruid Rev. Skip Ellison, and I went on to join the AODA (Ancient Order of Druids in America) under the current leadership of Archdruid John Michael Greer. I have studied these particular methods and branches of druidry in the most depth but still read all articles and books I can find on the subject.
Aside from Druidry this site is also dedicated to its related studies (though most likely not all of them). These studies include but are not limited to Wicca, Faeries, Celtic Studies, Celtic Mythology, Magick, Wizardry, Herbalism, Stone Magick, Sacred Sites, Welsh Mythology, Spirituality and even travel. All the links will lead on to a world of information, and some to shops that will help to find books and tools to help you on your path. I wish you the best of luck in all your voyages either on this site or in the real world. I hope that you find this site informative and I welcome any questions, comments or complaints through the forums or the contact page so that I can make this site the best it can be.
Yours Under the Trees,

In this age of instant communication and the internet new starting witches, wizards, druids and pagans have a resource open to them that some of us could have only dreamed of when we took our first steps on our paths. The knowledge that is available now through internet sources, recommended reading lists, online schools and forums is immense and even for an adept can be quite an undertaking to wade through. It has really gone the gambit from finding the odd book in the library or the bookstore to finding thousands of points of views and traditions at one’s very fingertips.

Words have power,
Through Quantum physics, I have learned about the studies done where they found that you can change the formation of water molecules or photons by a deep concentration of emotion and a word. Just writing the word on the bottle will transform millions of tiny particals.
With a word, one can make a person feel bad about themselves, and with one word you can make a person's light shine so bright you'll need to pull them back down to earth.

To anyone who sits and listens intently with his or her very soul, no matter where in the world he or she might be, he or she hears the call deep inside leading him or her to those ancient magical places. These special sacred spaces, whether known to many, such as Stonehenge, or known to only a guarded few, seem to call forth to those who would tune themselves to nature, and quiet themselves and hear nature’s song. The sacred Earth guides them to these places and gives special blessings to their rites.
