As we journey on our druidic path we choose to honor the kindred in many ways. One of the most personal is honoring them by taking better care of ourselves mentally and physically. A path to wellness is not an easy one but one which is well worth it.

Central to the ritual and mythology of the Indo-Europeans was a sacred drink, ranging from the ale of sovereignty and mead of inspiration of northwest Europe to the soma of India.  This workshop will present the evidence from the different Indo-European traditions, speculate on what an original drink and ritual would have been like, and make suggestions for how such a drink and ritual can be incorporated into modern practice.

Unlike the Abrahamic faiths, ancient Indo-European religion was based on reciprocity - do ut des, I give so that you may give. This workshop will examine the concept of reciprocity as well as the evidence for reciprocal relationships between the Gods and the people in ancient writings from Ireland to India and many places in between. We will also explore how these ancient practices may apply to us in the modern day as we re-imagine and recreate our Paganisms today.

Come and celebrate with us as we honor the land spirits in their time of weakening.  We will also take time to remember A. J. Gooch, and make offerings to the ancestors to ask they accept him as one of their own.  There will also be the elevation of Rev. Robert Lewis to a Senior Priest of ADF.  Personal praise offerings for the ritual are encouraged.
