What is ADF?

In this episode we talk about what Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (ADF) is. We talk about the founder and Archdruid Emeritus Isaac Bonewits, the creation of ADF, and what Bonewits had in mind for ADF. We also talk about various aspects of ADF, such as the educational opportunities, the Special Interest Groups, the Kindreds, the Guilds and the Orders. And finally we go over a little bit of what ADF is not.


Music today was from the album “Avalon is Rising” by the band Real Magic. Find out more at
