ADF stands for Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (pronounced arn ree-ocht fane) and is Irish Gaelic for “Our Own Druidry”. We are an international fellowship devoted to creating a public tradition of Neopagan Druidry. Drawing inspiration from the ancient traditions of the Indoeuropean people, we work to create an authentic expression of ancient tradition practicable and relevant for modern individuals and society. We perform our rites honouring the three “Kindred”: Deities, Ancestors and Nature Spirits.
Since its founding by Isaac Bonewits in 1983, ADF has frown into a legally recognized religious organization with international local congregations (Groves) and many more members practicing as “solitaries”; unaffiliated with a grove. We are well structured with regular elections.
We developed highly respected training programs for the development of liturgists, bards, craftsmen, scholars, seers, magicians, initiates and priests.
The Groves of ADF are regularly involved in charity programs, environmental initiatives, prison ministries and other outreaches supporting the land and the people.
To learn more about our vision and how you can become involved you can explore this site, contact the ADF (Proto-) Grove nearest you, e-mail the European Regional Druid (or the Deputy Regional Druid of the Uk, if you are from the UK), or check out the official ADF homepage.
