What path do you choose?

Hunter or Hunted?



As an initiate you travel far to the annual fire festival held at Ffynnon, a land outside of time, where war and strife are unheard of, and the lands bounty is rich and plentiful. Tribes make the annual journey for trade, and many young men and woman come in hopes of finding new love.

Although people come from all walks of life, Ffynnon is a place of unity, a place where differences are celebrated, and the tribes become one. Festivities included dancing the Maypole, music, feasting, study, the annual hunt, and the birth, which is the planting of the sacred tree. This year is the year of the Oak. It stands for courage, truth, and wisdom. It represents the strength of the tribe.

The Druids perform a dedication to Vision, Creativity, and Fertility. Each initiate vows to honor one of these energies throughout the year. At the dedication the maiden and stag lead the hunt to the Temple of the Horned God, where they make merry and practice their Sacred Rites. With the veil thin the Horned God, Green Goddess, and Fae join the festivities. The Fae instigate mischief, carrying the energies throughout the night.

On the final day of the festival, the sacred Oak is planted, and the maypole is divided into logs, for the coming Yule season. Initiates return to their lands to work on the mysteries they have chosen to follow. Ffynnon, blessed by the tribes' energies, continues to reside in the in-between, otherworldly and sacred to those dedicated to the mysteries.
