The Dryads, who are direct kin to the Wood Nymphs were born of the third age and were what Tolkien refered to as ents... conscious and mobile trees. While they are related to Wood Nymphs, they tend to be more meditative than sexual beings. Which is not to say that they are never sexual nor Wood Nyms never meditative but that is a basic difference of inclination between them. The Dryads of today, whether in tree form or human form tend toward serious meditative practice; the human forms often being found in monastaries and meditation centers. Where as, the more evolved Wood Nymphs will be found practicing Tantric Yoga.

What do they meditate upon? They are attempting by example and the vibrational influence of their being to create peace and tranquility in the world. Particularly to soothe the frustrated and restless natures of man. Not by trying to dominate him or compell him but by the serene influence of their own being. Which, like the ocean washing against the shore, gradually erodes the mountainous cliffs of his obstinancy.
