The Hearth Keeper's Way

The Hearth Keeper's 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.
