The members of Whispering Lake Grove are committed to the ADF motto of “Why not Excellence?”  We strive to provide high quality public workshops and educational materials based solidly within the latest scholarship.  As public workshops are scheduled, they will be added to our events calendar.


Whispers From the Lake is the quarterly publication of Whispering Lake Grove.  This publication is reflective of our Irish Celtic and Norse-Teutonic hearth culture and features information regarding our upcoming rituals, reviews of past rituals, information from the Grove’s Senior Druid, as well as articles about our Deities, Ancestors and the Nature Spirits.  Works of art and poetry from our membership is also included within this publication. If you are interested in being added to our Grove’s mailing list, please contact our Grove Secretary.


The work of Whispering Lake Grove is based primarily in the myths and traditions of the Irish Celtic and Norse-Teutonic peoples, however other Indo-European cultures and traditions may also be explored from time to time.  Additional information regarding the Deities of our hearth culture can be found under the heading hearth culture on this page.


Mythology is of great importance to our work as ADF Druids.  It is the common themes that run throughout the mythology of the Indo-European peoples that link the various hearth culture practices of ADF together and allows us to identify as ADF Druids through the structure of our practice, instead of belief. 


Myth relates a sacred history that occurred at the beginning of time.  Through the study of mythology and the re-creation of these mythological themes during our rituals we are able to create a sacred time that is “all time”.  This time is the past, present and future of our existence.  When “all time” or sacred time is created in ritual we can stand with our Deities, Ancestors and the Nature Spirits in the beginning of time, in the present and at the end of time.


Please visit our mythology page on this site which contains the retellings of myths from the Indo-European cultures as told by the members of Whispering Lake Grove.
