Eureka, CA:
The Mother Grove

Another very busy season for the Mother Grove! We have performed several ordinations for our members, welcomed in lots of new members, and are still holding our monthly "water-sharing" chats online. Ceridwen has begun teaching a series of classes at our local Pagan bookstore, including: Tarot 101, Numerology 101 and all three degrees of Reiki - plus working there full time as well (which, again, is why this issue is late - however, she hopes to be all caught up by the next issue!)

On another very happy note: we have once again secured the campground for our 3rd annual Gathering in the Redwoods, and are now busily working on organizing and advertising it. We are also happy to annouce that the Clan of the Triple Horses and the Druid Network will be co-sponsoring it again this year, along with the Sequoia Pagan Alliance as well!

More details will be given as things progress...in the meantime, keep checking back here for more info:

Philadelphia, PA:
Currently meeting in the lush emerald woods of Fairmount Park in the city of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection (commonly know as Philadelphia), Aelvenstar Grove honors Mother Earth. The grove was formally founded Beltaine, 2004 and is a proto grove of the Reformed Druids of Gaia/Order of the Mithril Star and the Reformed Druids Of North America. In addition, we are associated with other pagan organizations such as Per NTR Sesen and Temple Harakhte.

Looking to our ancestors and the ancients, Aelvenstar Druids respect all life and receive inspiration from Nature and the heavens. We believe it is the natural state of Mankind to live in harmony with Nature. and that it is our responsibility to respect and protect the Earth. As activists, it is our responsibility to do our part collectively and individually to heal the environment.

Emphasizing development through the practice of Druidcraft, focus is placed upon personal growth through the development of body, mind, and spirit. Through study, discussions, rituals, retreats, fellowship, and meditation, a spiritual framework is provided through which Druids may further develop themselves.

Aelvenstar Grove holds eight celebrations a year, on the solstices, equinoxes, and cross quarter festivals. We sometimes meet on other occasions for outings and initiations. Online meetings and initiations are held too, as some members live a distance away.

We welcome new members of all backgrounds who love nature and seek spirituality permeated in the divine beauty and wonder that surrounds us. Nature is groovy!
