As well as performing priestly functions, Druids are trained to be artists, storytellers, community advisors and teachers. Through their ways, Druids seek to gain an inherent understanding of reality, which may be expressed through the natural world, mythology and connecting to the divine.

Druidry is also a green path. Druids are like custodians of nature and the land in which they live, learning its lessons and keeping it maintained, like an ever-watchful spiritual gardener.

Although Druids have a defined outlook and philosophical approach to life, there is no central concept of the divine to which all Druids adhere. So that means that there are no set "Gods of Druidry" and no singular manner in which to worship the divine. Some Druids don't concern themselves with Gods at all.

Druids often fit themselves into their local pantheon of Gods and spirits, so a British Druid could worship ancient Celtic deities, while an American Druid may honour the divine in the form of the local Native American concept.

However, most Druids believe in the following things:
