Founded in 1983 by Isaac Bonewits, ADF offers individual Pagans training in spiritual practice and study, and supports local congregations offering public Pagan worship.

Burning Down the House: A Celtic Sacrificial Shrine

One thing about ancient Celtic ritual of which we can be reasonably certain is that they occasionally built shrines or feast-halls, used them for a short while, and then destroyed them by fire. The Druids of ADF will build a small shrine, dedicated to all the spirits - Ancestors, Land-beings, and Goddesses and Gods. The shrine will stand on the roadside during the week, to receive offerings and dedications. At out midnight rite we will load the shrine with further offerings and burn it upon the sacred fire. Join us for an evening of reverence and revelry as we share blessing and dance the fire of sacrifice.
