I hope you find yourself feeling welcomed here!
I have had a few unsavoury experiences, with locals, Facebook and so on... Only stayed with 2, and only one has to do with Druids specifically
At first, I was unsure as well... I proceeded after a short time of consideration (one could say, I meditated on it). I have no regrets and nothing but warm experiences thus far!
I did my initiation almost 2 years ago
I hope we fill that niche you are needing!
