A Little Bit About Us

Columbia Grove became a full grove within ADF at Beltane of 2016. We invite all of our members and the public to explore the spirit and lore of all Indo-European traditions through public rituals, workshops, and festivals.

Grove members can participate in various special interest groups within the grove and attend private rituals and social gatherings.
 

We follow a Neo-Pagan Druid path that draws many aspects of its practice from the Proto Indo-European language regions' ancient cultures. 

 

We practice a polytheistic religion, believing in the individuality of ancient deities and the cultures from which they came. We seek to understand ourselves and our place in the universe through scholarship and the pursuit of nine virtues commonly found in ancient Indo-European cultures: wisdom, piety, vision, courage, integrity, perseverance, hospitality, moderation, and fertility. We uphold the tenets of hospitality between ourselves, the deities, the ancestors, and nature's spirits through personal practice and group ritual.

 

Columbia Grove, ADF is a tax-exempt, nonprofit religious organization incorporated in the State of Oregon. We are a Grove within Ár nDraí­ocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (also a a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit church. Contributions to Columbia Grove are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
