All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

So I've been looking at their website a lot and I'm thinking of joining the Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (ADF). Does anyone have any experience with them? Any insight as to the quality of their material?

Hey,

 

Sorry for not replying to your post sooner, my PS browsing habits are spotty lately.

I'm a ADF member, have been for a year, so I might be able to answer your questions.

 

http://www.adf.org/training/dedicant/preview.html

This link might help you out.

 

Every new member gets the dedicant manual. Which is a well written resource for new members.

It teaches you pretty much everything you need to know to complete the Dedicant path.

There is a weekly online class taught by one of the senior druids that helps people along the Dedicant path, if you work better in that kind of a setting.

 

There are different levels within the ADF.

Basic Membership. The first level, requires nothing more than applying and paying the dues.

Dedicant. Second level. Takes a year of study. And yes, there is homework.

Initiate. Third level. A lot more study and work. Its just a step below priesthood.

Then there is Clergy. About as high as it goes. Comparable to High Priest/ess in other faiths.

 

Sorry, I guess I kinda prattled on.

Any specific questions you have, Just ask.

Oh, one other thing I forgot to mention.

In ADF, the god's are distinct entities, they are not aspects of a divine energy, or aspects of the Lord and Lady, as in some pagan faiths.

Also, mixing pantheons is frowned upon.

I have been a basic member since 2004 and could not be happier. I have grown spiritually a lot in the last 7 years. I am a solitary living  close to a grove with many fine people. People will help you with anything you need to grow in Druidry.

Thanks everyone! I'm happy to say I signed up last night after extensively reading through the basic stuff on the website :)

I also suggest the website paganachd.com if you are interested in celtic culture. I know of a good website for hellenic culture if you go that route.
