John Michael Greer (b. 1962) is an author, historian of ideas, Hermeticist and Druid who resides in Ashland, Oregon. He currently serves as the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America, a position he has held since 2002.

His first book, "Paths of Wisdom", a study of the Golden Dawn system of Qabalah, was published in 1996, and has been followed by many other books on magical and esoteric traditions and their histories, including an encyclopedic work on secret societies, "The Element Encyclopedia of Secret Societies and Hidden History". Forthcoming titles will cover an exploration of UFO phenomenologies and histories, and esoteric Western Physical Culture. He has practiced gardening, Tai Chi Chuan and related internal arts "nei gung" for decades.

Greer has shown an interest in oil and other resource depletion, which he believes will bring about fundamental, global changes in societies for centuries to come.
