Druidry Courses

Sencha the Vate is the Chief Druid of the Order of the Morrigan, a Druid Order that practices shamanic Druidry. Membership in our Order is free. Click here for more information on membership. The first level of membership is Dedicant. Altogether there are seven levels, or degrees, of Druid learning in the Order of the Morrigan. To achieve First Degree status, you must first undergo a year and a day of study on what it means to be a Druid in the Order of the Morrigan. During this period you are considered a Dedicant Member. At the end of this dedicant period of study, you may then decide if the Order of the Morrigan is the right path for you.

The degrees of Druidry in the Order of the Morrigan and their corresponding educational paths are as follows:
1st Degree: Dedicant Path
2nd Degree: Earth Path
3rd Degree: Sun Path
4th Degree: Moon Path
5th Degree: Bard Path
6th Degree: Vate Path
7th Degree: Druid Path
The educational series below is the Order of the Morrigan’s Dedicant Path course. These audio recordings are designed to guide you through a series of experiential activities in Druidry as practiced by our Order. There are 13 courses, each named after a month in the Celtic ogham lunar calendar. Each course contains four weeks’ worth of materials. At the end of 13 months of four weeks each you will have spent 364 days of study. The remaining day of the ‘year and a day’ period is used for your initiation ceremony.

The courses are currently being developed. If you see an album cover thumbnail in the description of a month below, then that month’s lessons are currently available. If there is no thumbnail, the course is still being developed and will be released shortly. Click on a thumbnail to purchase a particular month’s lessons.
