Elvengeek's Intro

I go to Augsburg College in Minneapolis Minnesota, major in political science, and taking my bloody time getting thru college :)
I have been into Paganism for about 6-7 years and have been focusing on a Celtic path for the past 2-3 years.
I found a Celtic Reconstructionist teacher and studied with him (in a class) for about a year, then the group collapsed. Last year I found another teacher and studied, then initiated, but then there was shall we say, ethical wrong-doing on the part of the teacher, so I and a few other students no longer felt comfortable there.** Oh, well moving on...

Lately I've been going to my local Druid Meetup, Grove Gather (actually we're an Ex-Meetup and operate out of Yahoo groups now) and have gotten invited to Mistletoe Rituals with Mists of Stone Forest Grove, went to one last month and going to another this weekend. They are a nice group, still getting to know people.

I am interested in ADF, and the more I hear about it, the more I like. Need some time to figure my path out though and need time to make sure folks are trustworthy. I have also been trying to study the Irish language and participate in Irish cultural activities.

*With that in mind, I highly recommend Isaac Bonewit's Cult Danger Evaluation Frame, as a guide for finding your comfort level with a group (any group, not just spiritual) It was helpful in making me realize how creepily authoritarian and manipulative my teacher was.
