The New British Druids: Connecting with nature in the 21st century
As growing numbers of people embrace nature-based spiritualities, Druidry - arguably the indigenous faith of the British Isles – is undergoing a resurgence. Journalist Alex Klaushofer brings a sympathetic yet detached eye to contemporary British Druidry, talking to the movement’s leading figures and experiencing Druid life first-hand through the rituals and ceremonies of a summer camp. The resulting piece of reportage gives a unique insight into modern paganism and how an ancient faith is metamorphosing into a new way of connecting with nature.
This is the first of a series of short travelogues exploring how faith is evolving in twenty-first century Britain, a theme which is explored more fully in the full-length book The Secret Life of God.
