Yesterday I announced on Facebook that my ADF grove is dissolving. Specifically, as of January 31, 2017 the ADF Protogrove called Five Rivers is dissolving. I am also allowing my membership in ADF to lapse for reasons that are not earth shattering nor to be made public. Sometimes, relationships just don’t work.
July 19, 2015 my grove got together to pay tribute to Lugh. The main offering were items from our gardens. Here is the ritual we (will be) used. Our ritual was held at Gladsheim Hof, so we feel it appropriate to gift a gift to the God host of the hall, we do this right after we honor the land itself.
Recently the Mother Grove (Board of Directors) of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) took an action
that some, including myself, felt was not appropriate and should have been handled differently. This has prompted not a few people on my social media lists to reconsider their involvement, and some have even decided to stop supporting the organization. Now some of you know that I do not feel that some of the leadership are worthy of their position, and that I already left ADF once due to poor treatment of a specific membership population…mistreatment that I am still seeing, and that the training programs are lacking due to the subjective nature of the reviewers.
you make assumptions or rush.
