The definition of 'Ritual' is the text used in a ceremony (which is the act itself). Most Druidic rituals follow a set pattern, i.e. the way the ceremony is opened, the ceremony itself, the closing. These can vary from grove to grove and organisation to organisation, although there are likely to be similarities. The language and purpose of the ritual are generally up to the individual(s) and can make for a very beautiful event if chosen carefully. Some Druid groups have published their rituals for other's perusal and use, such as are categorised herein.
