Inspirational Quote

"There are three reasons one ought to sacrifice to the gods: either on account of honor or on account of gratitude or on account of a want of things." ~ Theophrastos

Reclaiming Warlock

This is much banner-waving about the word Warlock in Neopagan circles. I for one feel it is really odd that a community would take on a charged word such as "witch" with all its societal baggage and then throw another word "warlock" under the bus to distract their reclamation. And the folk etymology that purports that warlock means "oath breaker" is not sound as some would hope. Besides, it is more important what word means now in the modern vernacular. There are documents in England that make reference to warlocks who are sought out to reverse the hexes of evil witches.

Lughnasadh 2013

Our Lughasadh ritual was excellent at Odin's Grove. We had wonderful meal and fellowship with Grove members and returning friends. We celebrated the festival of Tailtiu, Lugh's foster mother and the first harvest. Though we have harvest available year round, we think it very important to stop and consider the growing cycle and harvest time necessary no matter where food is grown.

Druidpalooza 2013


We had a really wonderful Druidpalooza this year and I want to thank our hostess at Odin's Grove in Pauma Valley off Highway 76 who allowed us to move Druidpalooza to the property there at the last minute due to campground closure because of the fires.

The lawn space of the property has many trees providing wonderful shade and our tents filled in quite nicely and remained shaded the entire day.

We had great fun at the workshops on Saturday:
