Humanistic paganism

I came across this, which looks rather appealing:

Does this approach sit comfortably with the Druid tradition? I feel like I want a deeper connection with the natural world but don't want to take on a load of strange beliefs. :)

Yes, OBOD druidry is very inclusive , there is no pressure to be a theist (if that's what your referring to here!). You can find out more about us through our main site.... www.druidry.org.

It's a wonderful blog, it had me giggling more than once...

I've found that druidry doesn't require any preset "belief" at all, but offers a way of honing and examining your own ideas and convictions, whatever they might be.
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe
