We are a pan-Druid/pan-Pagan group that visits wild locations around the greater DC region. We hike together, seek the Awen in wild spaces, and conduct small, informal circles to mark the seasons. Look for invitations to join us for camping, plant walks, foraging trips (forays), and other outdoor activities.
Our core ethos: All are welcome. Everyone belongs. While members need not share in any particular religious beliefs or devotional practices--indeed, you need not believe in Gods/Goddesses or "the path" at all--we do seek to share a deep reverence for the wild world and our place in the web of all things.
The group's name "san Fàsach" (say: sawn FAH-sock) is Scottish Gaelic for "in the wilderness." Named so because Druids, Wiccans, and other Pagan-folk have long claimed wild spaces and wilding work as the source of their deepest connections to self and others. We began san Fàsach because we believed that we must have journeys into the wild to connect with the sacred wisdom of the authentically self-guided path.
(Update: as of November 2016, we are a chartered "Study Group"/"Home Circle" with the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA). Membership in the AODA is encouraged, but not mandatory. Members of all other orders are welcome.)
