  • THE MISSION

    HearthStone Grove, ADF strives to become, for Austin, a scholarly & creative Gaelic Celtic spiritual family, whose members have a new outlook on the nature of being, equality of the sexes, and the importance of myth, music, & merriment on the human condition.

  • The Vision

    We envision our grove becoming the city center for Celtic pagan & neopagan spirituality. We will be working towards significant contribution to the secular Celtic and non-Celtic communities through support, education, music, and culture. We envision performing public workshops, rituals, funerals, marriages, and various blessing services to all Celts & Neocelts in the greater Austin & Central Texas communities. Within 25 years, we hope to break ground for a Meeting Hall on HearthStone owned land."

  • FAQ

    Answers to Common Questions

    What Is ADF?

    Indo-European Religion

    ADF is a pan-indo-european religion that has discovered that the spiritual practices of cultures speaking Indo-European languages are interwoven, interconnected, and similarly structured due to a common origin. Looking at all that we know of the IE religions and through comparative mythology, we can gain enough insight and wisdom needed to rebuild, revive, and grow any pagan reconstructionism of any of these cultures. ADF is an acronym for an Irish phrase meaning Our Own Magic. Within ADF, we reapply the mysticism surrounding the term itself, by calling a greek, roman, norse, celtic, vedic, indo-iranian, proto-indo-european prest by the term druid. 

    What Makes Ya'll Different?

    In more ways you can count

    HearthStone Grove is the only group that offers regular public lunar and solar observances in Austin. Additionally our Indo-European roots exclude circle casting, 4/5 elements, and a strong focus on the need for thaumaturgy. On the other hand, we are entirely orthopraxic, public, scholarly, and we have a strong focus on hard polytheism and animism. We don't have any silly notions that our gods are 'tougher' or that they are 'no nonsense' deities like recon groups who romanticize the Iron Age.

    This is us, we're pitiful.

    Just kidding, we do our best to celebrate and worship equally as hard.
