Our next local public ritual will be our Lughnasadh celebration on Saturday, August 18, at our Grove Nemeton. For pictures of Elkshadow, located outside the City of Rogue River, Oregon, please see- http://home.earthlink.net/~triplehorses/id10.html
This ritual is the annual Druid celebration of the harvests, the Dog Days of Summer, as well as the Celtic deity, Lugh's tribute to his foster mother. For more information about Lughnasadh, please see- http://www.maryjones.us/jce/lughnassadh.html

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!
