What is Shining Lakes Grove?
Shining Lakes Grove is a local branch of Ár nDraíocht Féin, A Druid Fellowship, Inc (ADF). As such we join hundreds of individuals and small groups throughout the world who are working within the framework of ADF to better ourselves, our local communities, and our world. We are bringing the philosophies of ADF to life at the grass roots level and introducing our Pagan beliefs to the mainstream.
We are a growing group of friends and families working through both magical and mundane means to bring our dreams into fruition. These dreams include: building a bridge of good relations with the SE Michigan Pagan and mundane communities; providing accessible opportunities for personal and spiritual growth through Druidism; and becoming a valuable and respected member of our community through public service, public education and right action.
We are working together to revive those practices of our Indo-European ancestors that are found to be rewarding and suitable for our modern needs and sensibilities. We are actively working to create spiritually and artistically effective magical practices to promote personal spiritual growth and greater communion with the Earth, the Spirits of Nature, our Ancestors and our Deities.
We join together to work, play, learn, teach and celebrate the seasons of our lives, the seasons of Nature, and the mysteries of our Deities. Our activities are open to all who wish to participate and our members are welcome to belong to as many other organizations/paths as they wish.
As we nurture our dreams and aspirations we are building an ever stronger sense of family and community. Together we are creating a Pagan way of life which will be carried by our children’s children to the generations of the future.
