Sex and Boundaries

Summer is finally here, and festival season is already in full swing! As folks arrive at festival campgrounds, faces are filled with anticipation, joy, and even glee. Tents are set up, the beer is rolled out, and festival clothes thrown on. Old friends meet, new friends are made, and for many, sex is in the air.

Becoming Conscious

Spirit Alliances

On the magical front new things have been happening in ADF. People may remember that some years ago the Clergy Council began creating alliances with the Ancient Wise, a group of Sacred Dead who are willing to work with all of us as advisors in our efforts to bring back the ways of old. Many of our members have begun working with these Spirits since then.

Virtual vs. Real

ADF is, in many ways, a virtual church. Many of our members have no grove or protogrove connections, and their only contact with other like-minded ADFers comes through the Internet, or in the pages of this journal.

Finding Her Balance

At the Equinox, we were reminded of the balance of all things, of the careful and holy interplay of Order and Chaos, and of how both are necessary to sustain life. The last few months have been terrifying, with floods in Australia, earthquakes in New Zealand, and both earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan.

Every Day is a Blessing

It’s been a chaotic and terrifying few months. Floods in Australia, an earthquake on New Zealand’s South Island, damaging an historic city, and then a terrible earthquake and tsunami in north western Japan – folks could hardly be blamed for thinking that the Earth is taking some terrible revenge on humanity.

Getting Things Done

End of an Era

The death of our Founder, Rev. Isaac Bonewits, on August 12, 2010, while not unexpected, was still a great shock to many of us. He had battled cancer since last autumn, undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, but even with all that discomfort he kept his sense of humor and general orneriness to the end. He shall be truly missed.
