Resources on Druidry and Reformed Druidism
Below is a partial list of commonly recommended readings for people who come to explore druidry, including RDNA-specific works.
Books From the Reformed Druids of North America (ARDA!)
A Reformed Druid Anthology, 2nd ed (also known as ARDA-2) – this is a monumental collection (almost a thousand pages long), and it comes in various forms and formats due to its sheer size. The PDF versions are always FREE, but hardcover prints are available from Lulu Print-On-Demand. The catch with Lulu is that their bookbinding press can only handle books up to 800 pages, thus ARDA-2 is just a bit too big to be printed as one compendium. As a result, the Lulu printed version has been divided into three tomes that are several hundred pages each.
Volumes: There are eleven volumes that comprise ARDA-2, including "Volume Zero." Click here to view the list and descriptions of each volume.
ARDA-2 Complete (FREE PDF) (Volumes 0-10, excluding vol 6)
Volume 6: Green Books of Meditation complete (FREE PDF) – this alone is almost a thousand pages long and intentionally set apart from the other volumes. The Green Books are only available in PDF and contain inspirational writings from many religions and cultures.

ARDA Audiobook Project: The Chronicles of the Foundation and a portion of the Apocrypha have been recorded as audio books in plain MP3 format, but without the introductions, end-notes, or historiographical content. The audio recordings feature only the main works. There are additional audio files that have not been edited down into subsequent audiobook sections yet, and there is still much more recording to be started. You can enjoy what we have so far, but the rest will be a work in progress for some time to come.
- Volume 1, The Chronicles of the Foundation
- Volume 2, Books of the Apocrypha 1964-1969
- Volume 2, Books of the Apocrypha 1969-1970
