Lucky Episode 13: Interview with Archdruid Drum

Hello, and happy Lupricalia to you all!

This month Arin has had the opportunity to speak with Reverend Archdruid Jean “Drum” Pagano. They talk about his motivation within ADF, his job as Archdruid, and opinions on the changing landscape of communication and information sharing within ADF.

We also hear a piece from Reverend Sean Harbaugh about the ADF Hospitality room at Pantheacon, and Kirk Thomas reads another piece “From the Archives” which is “Seeking the Wisdom of the Ancestors: A form of Indo-European Divination” By Ceiwser Serith from Oak Leaves #18.  

To find out more about Pantheacon, go to www.pantheacon.com

To contact Drum, you can reach out to adf-archdruid@adf.com or reach him personally at NightDrum@juno.com. You can also find him on Facebook as Jon Drum. Some of the events he will be attending this year include Wellspring at Tredara, Ghosti-Con, Trillium Spring Gathering, Three Rivers Festival, Chrysalis Moon 2017, Starwood Festival, Summerland Spirit Festival, Midnight Flame Festival,  and Pan-Pagan Festival.

Our music today was the Hymn to the Morrigan, lyrics by Isaac Bonewits, sung by Earrach of Pittsburgh, Founder of Sassafras Grove, ADF. Find his blog at  http://thebookofsassafras.blogspot.com/

 

Feb 11, 2017

Hey! It’s Arin and Jonathan again, with another episode of Part the Mist, from rainy Portland Oregon! This time we’re bringing you an episode on the ADF Dedicant Path. Jonathan was unable to record with us this time, so Arin’s gotten together with the Grove’s own Spider Faerie Queen, Amber, and ADF’s Michael J. Dangler. Amber leads the Grove’s Dedicant Study group, which revolves around a study guide written by Michael Dangler. We talk about the requirements, the proctors, and the difference between a “path” and a “program”. We each give our own insights into what it’s been like walking the Dedicant Path, and our hopes for the future of ADF studies!

Later in the show is Kirk Thomas’ first installment of “From the Archive” reading articles from previous editions of Oak Leaves.

If you’re interested in reaching out to Spider, e-mail columbiaadf@gmail.com, or ptmpod@gmail.com, and we’ll forward your message to her!

You can find Michael at chronarchy.com. Check out his website, www.magicaldruid.com. And find information about the Three Cranes Grove, ADF, at www.threecranes.org.

 

Our music for this episode was: Blodeuwedd by Damh The Bard

Dec 2, 2016

This month we’re joined by John Hijatt and Marci Barrett to talk about the Heathen hearth culture. Together we talk about the differences between what we’ve been saying all along (Norse) and the more accurate term (Heathen). We talk about the source of the hearth culture, the different cultures under the Heathen banner, and what little we know about the ancient cultures. We talk about the Deities in the ritual, Loki and the divisive nature Heathens take toward Him, and Jonathan asks a question about Vikings!

Some resources to check out are:

Bonus Episode 6- Welcoming the Mighty Dead

Once again, Arin, Jonathan, and Ember, have come together to talk about leading the Welcoming the Mighty Dead ritual, what it entails, and how this unique ritual came to be. We all talk about our experiences in the ritual, and Arin reads a couple accounts from other Grove members who took both an “ancestor” role, and a “demon” role (if you’re confused, I guess that just means you’ll have to listen!) 

Kudo’s go out to everyone involved in this ritual, and to Drea and Mama Gaea/Christina for their written perspectives of the ritual.

Episode 9 “Roman Hearth Culture overview”

 

This month we explore the Roman Hearth Culture with Jonathan. We explore some Roman 101 with thanks to An Introduction to Roman Religion by John Scheid. We talk about the difference between the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, particularly when it comes to religion. We talk about the key concepts of the Roman Religion, and we define some important words within the Roman religion. This hearth culture overview is a little longer than the last episodes have been, so there is no interview this time, but stay tuned for next month, when we’ll be talking about the Norse Hearth Culture and hearing the interview with Kirk Thomas.

 

Our Deity of the episode today was Mars, god of war. Find out more at http://www.ancient.eu/Mars/.

 

We’re featuring some Roman music this month:

Synaulia - Oraculum

Synaulia - Prayer to Isis

Bonus Episode 5- Dionysus Fall Equinox

 

Arin, Jonathan, and Ember get together to talk about what it was like leading and taking parts in their Fall Equinox ritual honoring Dionysus. Jonathan talks about how, even though our Grove has multiple members who often take parts leading rituals, as Senior Druid he still often finds himself stepping up to help out when members are unable to do their part. Ember talks about some of the thought process that went into writing this ritual, and the surprise “modern” element of the ritual.
