Episode 8 “Hellenic Hearth Culture/Interview with Missy”

 

This month Arin and Jonathan invite members of the ADF Hellenic kin “Oi Asproi Koukouvayies: White Owl Kin” to join them on the podcast. They are joined by Reverend Rob Henderson current “Basileus” (Chief) of the Kin, “Thexallon” Dave Kleinschmidt “Polemarkhos” (Secretary) of the Kin, and Diane “Emerald” Brunswick Egelhoff, former Basileus of the Kin. We talk about some basic Hellenic information with them, what a Hellenic ritual brings that is different from some other hearth cultures, the importance of Hestia, and and what a Greek Symposium really was, among plenty of other topics.

 

Our Deity of the episode today was Hestia, goddess of the hearth fire, who was invoked first and last at every Hellenic ritual. Find out more about Hestia at http://www.theoi.com/Ouranios/Hestia.html

 

Our music this month is: Damh the Bard, playing “Pagan Ways”

This month we talk about our experiences at the Beyond the Gates festival. We also hear from some of our other Grove members, both old and new, about their own experiences at the festival, including Mama Gaea, without whom this festival would not have existed, and one of our newest members Coatney.

After that, listen to Arin’s interview with Phaedra Bonewits. It was such a blast, and an honor, to get to meet to Phaedra, to talk to her about her history in paganism, her theatrical take on ritual, and her relationship with Isaac. Of course, we could only capture a small fragment of time with Phaedra to bring to our listeners, but we hope that you enjoy it just as much as we did.

 

Our music this month is:

From S.J. Tucker, “Hymn to Herme”

From Kellianna “Stonehenge”

Episode 4- ADF Core Order of Ritual, Part 1

 

This month Jonathan and Arin are joined by Columbia Grove member and officer Glenn. They talk a little about the anticipation of Columbia’s upcoming camping festival “Beyond the Gates”, and the Jonathan’s successful trip to another local camping festival “Beltane in the Grove”.

 

Stone Circle at Trout Lake Abbey

 

The main topic of the podcast is the Core Order of the Ritual with ADF: what we do, why we do it, and examples of how to do it, including how Columbia Grove does it. Due to this being a rather large topic to cover, we only covered the first six steps this episode, and plan (hope) to cover the remaining 12 in our next episode.

Our “Deity of the Episode” today was actually the Ancestor kindred. The invocation was written by Diane “Emerald” Vaughn and found in the Member’s section of the ADF website.

May 1, 2016

For this episode, Jonathan and Arin are joined by Chief Druid (and Jonathan’s girlfriend) Ember! They converse a little about some of Isaac Bonewits’ writings, find out more from his website, http://www.neopagan.net/IB_Books.html) The three of them talk about what it’s like performing public ritual, and some of their personal favorite public rituals. They also give a little list of “Do’s and Don’t’s” for public ritual behavior, at least according to their personal experience with ritual, both public and private. (This list is not conclusive, and not applicable to all public rites. Fellow ADF member JD Hobbes also wrote an article, not long after this episode was recorded, regarding public ritual etiquette, that can be found at http://thepaganpope.blogspot.ca/2016/04/pagan-ritual-etiquette.html)
