Hi, I've been interested in Druids but I don't know any rituals or spells they do. If you have any knowledge about it or if you know a website that does please reply to me. Thanks!

Read up on Druidry. It's a whole spiritual belief system, not just some spells and rituals.

There is a lot of information about the Druid religion at https://www.adf.org/ or at http://www.druidry.org/

And for books on modern Druidry, check out:

The Druidry Handbook: Spiritual Practice Rooted in the Living Earth by John Michael Greer and Phillip Carr-Gomm

The Druid Magic Handbook: Ritual Magic Rooted in the Living Earth by John Michael Greer and David Spengler

" The Mysteries of Druidry " by Brendan Cathbad Myers and Isaac Bonewits

There is also Duglas Monroe and his books:
- The 21 Lessons of Merlin.
- The Lost Books of Merlin.
- The Deepteachings of Merlin.

I am not entirely sure if those books are good for learning authentic druidism, but they might be worth a look.

Sadly I would not recommed Monroe's books at all. They are full of misinformatoin about both the ancient Druids and modern Druidry.

As an example of the nonsense in the "21 Lessons of Merlyn", Monroe states that a female Druid is called a Dryad. Nothing can be further from the truth. A "Dryad" is a Greek tree spirit. A Druid is a Druid, whether they be male or female.

Further, even his choice of spelling is incorrect. In Welsh the word Merlyn means "pony". The correct Welsh name for the mage from the Tales of King Arthur is "Myrddin", meaning "Sea Fortress".

He then goes on to say that the ancient Druids were all vegetarians, a fact which is clearly debunked if one takes the time to read the tales of feasting in the Welsh and Irish myth cycles.

And his books go on and on spouting similar nonsense.

Thank you, Lark, after reading some more about him on the net I will also try to steer clear of his books. His works always looked somewhat dubious to me, that's why I suggested those books very carefully.
