Ellison

            My name is Skip Ellison.  I’m currently an Archdruid Emeritus of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF).  I was elected to position of Archdruid in May of 2001, and served until May of 2010, completing my nine years of service in that post.

            I started in the Neopagan movement when I was initiated into a Celtic Traditional Wiccan coven in 1982.  I worked with the coven in several positions and then in the fall of 1990, had the opportunity to attend a workshop presented by Isaac Bonewits on ADF.  His workshop interested me enough about ADF that I joined the organization soon after, and joined it’s Mother Grove (Board of Directors) in 1992. 

As an author, I have written six books, “"The Wheel of the Year at Muin Mound Grove, ADF: A Cycle of Druid Rituals," “The Solitary Druid,” “The Divine Liver: The Art and Science of Haruspicy,” "Ogham: The Secret Language of the Druids," “The Fairy Races of the British Isles,” and “The Songs of Isaac Bonewits.”

            I am also happy to have been associated with the Grey School of Wizardry since its inception, and am currently the Provost of Colleges, Bursar, and Dean of Divination; as well as an instructor of Magical Practice, Divination, Performance Magick, Beast Mastery, and Lore.

               In my personal life, I’m a retired industrial electrician and spend my time now traveling.
