Group Overview: Home of the Ancestors a newly formed protogrove of Ar nDraocht Finn (ADF) .
Home of the Ancestors welcomes members of the pagan and non pagan community to honor our Kin of the past, present and future through public workshops, festivals, and rituals.
We seek to honor the spirit of the family through ancestral worship of the early Roman peoples through effective magical and ritual practice that meets the needs and sensibilities of modern life. The primary goal, is to connect and work with our Ancestors which will lead the way to a better community.
- To create an interest in Home worship practices of peoples long ago.
- A sense of family among the community through connection to our ancestors
- To seek out people wanting to honor their patron deities as well as their ancestors.
- To personally grow and work with the energies of each person attending the rites
- To create a truly magical and meaningful experience.
Membership in Home of the Ancestors is open to anyone who is interested in ancestral worship as well as honoring the Gods.We are looking for members who are energetic, dedicated, spiritual, and Honest. Because this is a newly formed group, we are removing the requirement of attending one rite before joining.
WHAT IS ROMAN ANCESTRAL HOME WORSHIP VS HIGH ROMAN WORSHIP?
There are two types of Roman religious rituals
1) Temple Rites
2) Home Worship
The first one is the most commonly recognized and preformed of the two. The Roman Catholic church was heavily influenced by the structure of this type of rites (hence most people do not like the Roman hearth culture) . The official religion of Rome was the "Religio Romana" which was literally the religion of the state. The ancient Romans believed that "Rome" (The empire) was a living entity which needed the gods help to succeed and prosper. The temples you see in Europe were not for the people but for there entity that was Rome. The priest that ran the temples numbered as few as three to as many as twenty. The public (lower class citizens) were bared from entering the temples and practiced their spirituality at home (See below) . The typical Roman ritual would last anywhere from ten minutes to no more then forty-five minutes since the rituals main focus was offerings and invocations. The ADF rites that I attached run anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half which makes these rites not at all like the original rites.
The second type is how most ancients Romans worship (least practiced today) Home Worship. The Romans were very big on the family and view it as sacred, as such the whole religion was based on the household. Ancestors were considered a key element in their household rituals.
Ar nDraocht Finn (ADF)
ADF is an international fellowship devoted to creating a public tradition of Neopagan Druidry. Though we do not consider ourselves "Re-constructionists" -- we do believe in the importance of scholarship. Through the on-going study and discussion of archeology, history, and comparative mythology we have developed methods of worship that we believe our Paleopagan ancestors would recognize and respect as akin to their own. The Shining Ones, the Ancestors, and the Nature Spirits deserve the very best that we can give them, so we encourage our members to pair their study and critical thinking skills with the pursuit of creative and artistic excellence.
