Tribe of the Oak

Located in: Amherst, Massachusetts

Spiritual Path: CR Druid
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Teaching Available
Group Overview: Please request to join the Grove only if you are seriously seeking to be a member and are prepared to study towards Druidic initiation.
We are an on line study group with members across the globe. We also meet in person for Grove meetings and seasonal rites, mostly in Western Massachusetts. The ArchDruids for the Grove are Gwennic, an accomplished teacher of the ways of the Sidhe (the Fairies) , and Ellen Evert Hopman, an author and Druid Priestess for many years.
We are the “People of the Oak”. Oak trees are sacred to all cultures across the European continent and sacred to all cultures that these magnificent trees dwell in.
We have gathered together here to help connect our thoughts and our ideas on what the ancestors may have believed and how they may have worshiped. We discuss the books we are reading and share resources, rites, and the ideas and inspirations of our collective Grove energy.
We are a Celtic Reconstructionist Druid Order which means we base our study and practice on ancient Celtic traditions and readings. The work starts with an extensive reading list and then progresses to one-on-one study with your foster. Most people take about three years to finish. There are hands-on, non-literary tasks, tools to make, and seasonal projects in addition to the basic reading.
Our training materials are very Irish based, using 7th century writings. Once the work is done there is initiation, and then a major focus is chosen which the initiate pledges to master and teach for the rest of their life.
