Part the Mist Podcast

This is Part the Mist, a podcast hosted by a couple of Druids. Arin and Jonathan are members of Columbia Grove, ADF in Portland, Oregon. They talk about a variety of topics that relate to Druidism and Druidry, including ancestor veneration, nature veneration, reciprocity, ethical behavior at public rituals, and various Hearth Cultures, among a variety of other topics, and they interview other Druids about their experiences and specialties. The show wraps up with a calendar of pagan events in the Pacific Northwest, and a musical piece. Intro music is “Gatekeeper Open the Portals” sung by Kirk Thomas.

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.

If you’re interested in checking out the ritual script, catch it at:

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


We’re featuring some Roman music this month:

Synaulia - Oraculum

Synaulia - Prayer to Isis
