Hearth Keeper Way

Hearth Keeper Way

The Hearth Keepers of ADF are those individuals, families, and small groups that have aligned themselves and at least a portion of their practice with ADF. The Hearth Keeper’s Way is a method of worship for the folk of Our Druidry. To become a Hearth Keeper is to devote yourself to the basic work of druidry - to welcome the gods and spirits to your hearthfire, to keep the holy days simply, and to integrate paganism into your daily life. Being a Hearth Keeper is about keeping the flames of piety active for your Hearth.

When we worship as Hearth Keepers, not only are we feeding the hearthfire of ADF, but we are also coming together with other Hearths. We know that though other Hearth Keepers are worshipping in different physical locations, they join us in the same practice. Each Hearth Keeper brings their own style to this worship, and by joining one another in shared practice we experience a new sense of belonging and fellowship.

Author's Bio:

I joined ADF in summer of 2011 and attended my first COoR Midsummer ritual with Sierra Madrone Grove. Since then, I have continued to work with ADF to support ADF and its Folk, to form a devotional practice with the Kindreds, and to further my own learning. I completed my Dedicant Program in early 2013 and became a mentor for DP students shortly after that. In summer of 2013, I helped to co-found the Protogrove of the Valley Oak along with three other druids. In early 2017, I completed the Pre-Clergy Study Program and am currently a student in the Clergy Study Program. In March 2017, I was elected to the position of Regional Druid of the Northwest Region after having served as Deputy Regional Druid for 2017.
