What we're about

Within the brightness of the desert
Struggles for life abound
Upon the shores of a man-made lake
Receding waters sound
Across the wind-swept desolation
Druids rise to the call
Protect, preserve, give honor to the
Loving Mother of All


Welcome to the Druids in Las Vegas!

We are a meetup group hosted by Larrea Tridentata Grove, ADF for anyone interested in druidism or druidry residing in or near the southern Nevada area.

If you love the Earth and all that She provides, and are ready to reach beyond the monotheistic 'Almighty God' and the duotheistic 'God and Goddess' to a universe filled with Deities, Spirits, and Ancestors as separate, distinct, and numerous as the millions of stars in the sky or humans and other creatures of the earth, then you've found a home for yourself here among the druids. Come on out to a meeting and learn about the virtues that guide our behaviors, the sources which inform our practice, and the practices which strengthen our individual spiritualities. Perhaps we may entice you to celebrate with us at one of our High Day rituals where you can form your own connections to the numinous Beings who share our world, help us care for this land and the people on it at one of our Community Service activities, or just get to know the amazing lands that surround "The Meadows" on one of our hikes.

We hold rituals according to the 'standard' Neopagan calendar (every 6 to 7 weeks), Community Service activities quarterly, a discover Nevada type adventure or hike monthly, and study-group/social meetings weekly, all of which are open-to-the-public. We are a polytheistic group that falls somewhere in the middle of the range between hard reconstructionists and ultra-soft feel-good pagans with a strong leaning toward sound scholarship and scientific research. We use this study of history to inform our modern practice, but do not limit ourselves to the practices of our ancestors. Our rituals are formatted in the ADF-Style.

Druid Santa Ritual & Gift Exchange

Larrea Tridentata Grove, ADF

The Winter Holidays are upon us and Santa, one of the most well developed American deities, celebrates his birthday a few weeks before the busiest day of his year. Come join us for a light-hearted ritual to honor the Toy-making Joy Bringer. A wrapped gift ($20 value) is your ticket to receiving a gift from the elves in return, but all are welcome to sing carols and share in the cookies and cocoa with or without a gift. ... Dinner tonight: We have switched to a directed pot luck style dinner for our craft nights. Please check in with the grove for what food we still need covered for the feast.

Druids' Weekly Meetup - High Day Discussion

Learn about Ar nDraiocht Fein: A Druid Fellowship (ADF), druidism/druidry, virtue, polytheism, myths, and the many other aspects of "Our Own Druidism" in a quiet family setting. Bring a notebook, bring your questions, and bring an open mind. No one is required to purchase a meal and if this is your first meeting with the druids, then please enjoy our hospitality and a drink on us. Otherwise, we do ask that a drink at least be purchased to support the restaurant, as well as at least a dollar to tip the wait staff that put up with us all night. Meetings end when all are ready to leave. Tonight's discussion is expected to be on: The meanings and associations of the upcoming holiday: How does the weather in Las Vegas affect the traditional meanings for the season? How do secular and other religious holidays during this cycle compare or conflict with Neopagan traditions? A discussion on the patron for our upcoming ritual, ...

High Day Ritual

Larrea Tridentata Grove, ADF

As our ancestors once did, so we do today and so may our children do in the future... BotO(s): Morrighan ... Please arrive on time so that we may provide a pre-ritual briefing to everyone and still start ritual no later than 7:30pm. As always, our ritual will be held outdoors. Please dress accordingly! Information about our ritual style can be found at: About Our Ritual Style (http://www.meetup.com/Druids-in-Las-Vegas/pages/About_Our_Ritual_Style/) More information about our grove can be found at: Larrea Tridentata Protogrove, ADF (http://www.larrea-adf.org) ** This is a public ritual and all are welcome. ** Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who assumes responsibility for their charge's actions. We are currently unable to provide childcare, so if your child is unable or uninterested in being part of the service, it may be better to leave them home for the sake of your own experience as well as those around you. While attendance is free and open to everyone, rituals do cost money to perform. All donations are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible through the charter from our parent organization, Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) [a 501(c)3 charitable religious org]. All attendees are welcome to participate in the ritual as much or as little as they like; incense, oil and other items are provided to use for offerings. If you'd like to bring something of your own to offer, the Deities and Ancestors, in general, appreciate the sweet smells of incense as well as alcohol and silver objects. The nature spirits love edible seeds. All of our Kindred appreciate handmade goods and heartfelt poems and songs. All offerings are given to the Kindreds, taking them permanently out of human use (burned or otherwise eliminated/destroyed).
