The rite is being hosted by Haven Proto-Grove A.D.F. and is a public rite serving the pagan community as a whole. Haven is part of the druidic organization “Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship” which acknowledges a broad base of Indo-European traditions and is not limited to just the Celtic. An established grove might have several traditions such as Norse, Hellenic, Egyptian, etc. Haven at this time is both Norse and Celtic.
As the rite is druidic it has some differences from those performed in say, a Wiccan ceremony. However, there are common threads that run through all things and in the end, it really doesn’t matter how we do the Hokey Pokey as much as the WHY we do it. Ritual is just the means to the end, not the end itself. So, all of good heart are more than welcome regardless of path. There will be a quick pre-ritual briefing for those who’ve not been to one before and scripts will be available so folks can follow along and participate better.
After the rite, if there’s time, there will be a meet and greet so folks can get to know each other. Make some new friends! Any questions are likely best directed to Crystal Lotus Shoppe first since they are kind enough to
