Summer Solstice Rite Gratitude

Thanks to all who participated in Inis Úll’s  Summer Solstice High Day rite: Bandia na Gréine.

It was quite an interesting ritual; and I must say that I’m still processing it. Clearly, the sense of something hindering Lachna was confirmed in more ways that one: three people who were scheduled to take important roles were too sick to attend; two others had unusual delays in getting to the site; one person who wanted to attend could neither find us nor be found by us; clouds attempted to block the Sun during the reception of blessings, which were carried by the Sun’s rays…

Summer Solstice Rite Planning Meeting

Great Hill
New York, NY 10025
United States

Please join Inis Úll - Apple Isle Grove, ADF on Sunday, June 1st at 1pm as we plan our Druidic High Day rite for the Summer Solstice (the ritual, itself, will take place on Sunday, June 22nd). At this meeting we shall create a ritual of great profundity and joy - yes, really! All ideas welcome! No experience necessary!! Your participation will be greatly appreciated! (Please bring spare exclamation marks as I’m running out!) Also, if you have any questions regarding ADF or Druidry in general, we'd be happy to discuss those at this meeting as well.

Bealtaine Gratitude

Many thanks to all who participated in our Calan Haf (Bealtaine) High Day Rite: May Hawk of the Su - it was a beautiful day and a truly moving ceremony! I do think that Gwalchmei was pleased by our efforts. The omen suggested that we need to venture forth, to leave behind the fixed defenses we had enclosed ourselves within. Gwalchmei has invited us to quest with him during this season of light and action.

Concerning Sexual Misconduct

The Executive Committee of Inis Ull - Apple Isle Grove, ADF steadfastly condemns any and all forms of sexual misconduct, including harassment, abuse, and assault. We find it particularly heinous if such acts were to be committed by any person in whom the Grove may have placed trust. Such individuals are a danger to the community and are, as per Article 5.1 of our Grove bylaws, not welcome at any Inis Ull event.
