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.

Druids' Weekly Meetup: Post-Ritual Review

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: Ritual Review - AD Rev. Kirk reminds us that there is no ritual so perfect that it can't be improved upon and no ritual so awful that some lesson can't be learned from it. Tonight we will discuss the previous week's ritual. How did it go? What insights or experiences would folks like to share about it? How might we improve for the next ritual? Book Review - ADF encourages all druids to read, read, read. This is the best way to understand and build a foundation for our understandings and experiences. Tonight we will relate which books we are each working on, whether they are on the Dedicant's reading list or not. We will discuss our progress since the last book review meeting, as well as challenges the book has presented us. These discussions will assist those who are pursuing the Dedicant's Path to complete their reports and, for the rest of us, it will encourage us to continue to learn.
