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.
