I just joined OBOD. I'm on Gwers 14 of the Bardic Course. I've been gravitating toward Paganism for a number of years. One of my favorite books is "The Singing Creek Where The Willows Grow: The Mystical Nature Diary of Opal Whiteley". It was one of the things that set me on the path. I look forward to meeting others on the same path.
I have a BA in psychology and I remember that at the time I was in the midst of my major, the Police came out with their "Synchronicity" album in 1985. So I got exposure to Jungian thinking on a pop cultural level at the same time I was studying psychology. I thought Jung was probably the most interesting theorist in the psychological field. So, it was a pleasant surprise to find out that Druidry has some serious grounding in Jungian archetypes and that Philip Carr-Gomm has a background in psychology. There were times after college when I did a lot of second-guessing regarding my choice of majors. I thought that maybe I should have majored in something else. But, perhaps my instincts at the time were right. It just took 25 years to know that.
