Sacred Oak Grove/ Order of the Sacred Oaks
Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Portland, Oregon
Key Contact: In Ruadh Rofhessa
Spiritual Path: Celtic Druid
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Open Circles... Legal Clergy... Teaching Available
Group Overview: The Sacred Oak Grove is a Druidic Grove in the Arthurian, Celtic Wiccan tradition. It is for those seeking a true Druidic path celebrating knowledge, truth, justice, spiritual fellowship and community service. We celebrate Esbats on the full moon, tutorials on the new, and wheel-of-the-year Sabbats on the occasion.
Members of the Inner Circle commit to both group and individual studies for spiritual growth. An Outer Circle has been established for those wishing to celebrate just the Sabbats, after completing full initiation.
The Ancient and Honourable Order of the Sacred Oaks was officially founded at the Winter Solstice, (Alban Arthuan) 1998, but had been functioning "un-offically" for several years. It is incorporated and has 501 (c) 3 status. It charters groves meeting established criteria and dedicated to authentic Druidic principles and traditions, for those aspiring to the excellence of Druidry.
The Order has established an active Druidic College to standardize and promote study, and an Ordination Board which will ordain legally recognized clergy upon completion of a prescribed course of study.
The Groves and Order have sponsored annual Eisteddfod contests for poetry, storytelling and Celtic music in the Portland area.
The Order hopes to acquire land for ritual and other pagan activities. (Tax deductible donations are most welcome!)
We will gladly provide speakers and information for groups wishing to learn more about Druidic history and the journey of the Druid.
Examples of our liturgy, by-laws (the Rule) and member's writings may be seen on the website.
Although based as much as possible on authentic Welsh/Irish tradition, the Grove and Order recognize that we live in changing times and as times change, so must we. Yet we strive to return to the "old", lost, values.
We are listed on the Druid Network in Britain, the Groupe Druidic des Gaules in France and as a local resource in the new edition of Drawing Down the Moon.
We welcome inquiries from those seeking and willing to commit to the Druidic path.
Website temporarily down for rebuilding! Back soon!

They will take place on seven consecutive Saturday afternoons at Moonshadow, 3819 SE Belmont St., Portland.

Commitment is expected. The course costs $72 for the first six, the seventh being free. Payment in advance required with no refunds. A workbook will be provided and there will be homework.
