The Dolmen Arch Study Program

The Dolmen Arch study program is an early 20th-century American Druid correspondence course reconstructed by Grand Archdruid Emeritus John Michael Greer, which includes material closely related to the teachings in The Druid Magic Handbook, along with a great deal of additional teachings not published elsewhere — meditation practices, Druid philosophy, teachings concerning the Mabinogion, methods of energy healing, and much more. Although it is an independent course and not part of AODA, the Dolmen Arch study program qualifies for credit toward the Druid track of AODA’s training program. It is entirely compatible with AODA’s books and practices. The course is not restricted to AODA members, however; it may be taken by anyone who wishes to gain its benefits and is willing to work for them.

The Dolmen Arch study program may be undertaken as a self-study course or as a correspondence course. For the self-study option, Volume 1 of the Dolmen Arch study program, which includes the first four grades, is available for a limited period of time in a fine hardback edition. Volume 2, including the remaining three grades, is expected to be released in a limited edition by the same publisher in late 2020.

If you are interested in the possibility of taking the Dolmen Arch course as a correspondence course from a teacher and AODA member who has completed the course and is certified to teach it, please email the AODA at for a list of teachers.
