Who We Are

We are Virtual Fire Protogrove, an online grove of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF), established January 25, 2022. We are a group of Druids who have built a community around rituals, sharing them with each other online. We have no specific hearth culture, and the rituals focus on whichever hearth culture or style the leading ritualist is looking to explore and connect with. Our mission statement is

VF(P)G gathers for ritual as an accessible and inclusive online community. We empower each other to develop and celebrate our own ritual and hearth practices.

What We Do

We gather weekly for online rituals in the ADF style, most often utilizing the flexibility and strength of the Core Order of Ritual. We encourage Druids to present their own rituals as a way to build confidence and community in our shared path. Members of the Protogrove will prepare and present Core Order Rituals to celebrate each of the eight Neo-Pagan High Days.

We hope you will come experience a ritual for yourself. They occur weekly via Zoom on alternating Tuesday or Wednesday evenings and usually last under an hour. There is frequently group discussion following the ritual.

Tuesdays at 10 pm Eastern / 7 pm Pacific
Wednesdays at 8 pm Eastern / 5 pm Pacific

You can find details for all of the upcoming Grove-hosted events over on our Grove Events page (rituals, Dedicant Path Discussion Group meetings, and others). You can also check out details for upcoming rituals on our Facebook events page (you must be logged in to Facebook to view the page).
