in the News
In December of 2007 we were mentioned in an article about Paganism in our area. While the author got a number of details about ADF wrong, the article was very nice overall and helped clear some misconceptions about Paganism for the general population. You can find that article here.
Our Priest, Rev. Jessie "Medb" Olson was on our community radio station December 22nd 2009 at 11:30am, talking about the Winter Solstice and what its like to be a Druid. We are working on obtaining a copy of that interview.
Feather River Grove was a part of the featured story in the Chico News and Review. The subsection talking about FRG was titled "The druids among us". You can find that article here.
What is ADF?
The Irish words, pronounced "arn ree-ocht fane", mean "Our Own Druidism", and that's just what ADF is - a completely independent tradition of Neopagan Druidism. Like our sisters and brothers in the other Neopagan movements, we're polytheistic Nature worshipers, attempting to revive the best aspects of the Paleopagan faiths of our ancestors within a modern scientific, artistic, ecological, and wholistic context. Like our predecessors and namesakes the Druids, we're people who believe in excellence - physically, intellectually, artistically, and spiritually.
We're researching and expanding sound modern scholarship about the ancient Celts and other Indo-European peoples, in order to reconstruct what the Old Religions of Europe really were. We're working on the development of genuine artistic skills in composition and presentation. We're designing and performing competent magical and religious ceremonies to change ourselves and the world we live in. We're adapting the polytheologies and customs of both the Indo-European Paleopagans and the Neopagan traditions that have been created over the last fifty years. We're creating a nonsexist, nonracist, organic, and open religion to practice as a way of life and to hand on to our grandchildren. We're integrating ecological awareness, alternative healing arts, and psychic development into our daily activities. Together, we're sparking the next major phase in the evolution of Neopaganism and planting seeds for generations to come.
