Only a little over two weeks now until our Rocky Mountain Retreat (October 15-17)! I want to tell you a little about our opening speaker today.
Rev. Ian Corrigan was the second Archdruid of ADF. On his blog at https://intothemound.blogspot.com/, he describes himself as "a Neopagan of the Druidic sort, interested in Celtic polytheism as it might manifest for modern people in North America. I'm also an occultist, broadly interested in arcane and magical systems and ideas, from medieval grimoires through Hindu Tantra and Asian shamanism to Thelema and Chaos Magic."
Ian's book Sacred Fire, Holy Well is an approach to a modern practice of Celtic Paganism and magical arts. Centered in the lore of the Gaelic Celts, it offers a simple summary of Irish mythic lore, and ritual patterns for individual and group worship. It also provides complete instruction in a system of Druidic magical work, trance vision, spellbinding and work with spirits.
Interested, but busy that weekend? We will be recording all the nine speakers' presentations and the three rituals, links to which will be available after the retreat to everyone who has paid for the Zoom weekend. So don't let your other planned activities get in the way of hearing these great speakers!
