Go to a shaman.. shamanism is way better it truly heals and after you get healing from a shaman you will truly find your way... druidism is not something that really exists anymore and it's true definition is skeptical.

Druids don't turn into animals but, they respect nature as do the Shaman...as far as the age goes it's pretty close although they are from opposite ends of the planet.
The Shaman are from native american or south american descent...and the Druid of which are celtic descent.
Hope this helps.

"Shamanism" is (4 distinct things) a specific Neoshaman tradition, a specific Northern European tradition, a General tribal tradition, and a general modern set of exercises practiced within many religions, including modern Druid movements. (ADF, and OBOD included)
So, I'll speak of general Shamanic techniques used in Neoshamanism, vs. Druidry, which has Shamanic techniques as well.
My suggestion is to go to public rites and meet some people. At open circles, ADF rites, Pagan Pride Day, Witches Balls, and other pagan events, you will meet people who are practicing druids, and you'll meet peole who practice Shamanism in one form or another. It's impossible to say one is better than another online effectively.
What I can say is the ADF Druid rituals I have been to (and they're all public here in Pittsburgh) have been very powerful community and spiritual experiences.
Also, I suggest reading a book by a Neoshaman like Michael Harner, and one by a Druid like Isaac Bonewits, and compare the traditions.

I have been on a quest for 25 years. I have lived and traveled through the most remote areas of South East Asia, The People's Republic of China, and Central Asia. I am now heading for Siberia. My search is to try to find some mystical connection to the past through present day contacts. Shaman, Druid and ancient Celtic beliefs remain strong. It is all contained in the ether which is a common denominator. All that has been said remains said and can be heard. Trauma and happiness are recorded for eternity. Shaman and Druid are the same insofar as they commune through the ether. Fire, water, flora, fauna etc are absorbed in the ether and become part of the knowledge. The trick is how to extract it.

For those interested the ether is an all-pervading plenum in the universe, in which every particle of tangible matter is immersed.
Many in the scientific community ponder on the ether and its manifestation. To take it out of the realm of pure science and attach a shall we say mystical quality can never be qualified or quantified. It just exists. Waves cannot travel unless they travel through something. The art of the ancients and very few today due to excessive noise was to pick-up on the vibrations in the ether and translate them. This is why mystics seek places of solitude. Everyman can occasionally do this which accounts for flashes of brilliant perception.
