    S2 Bonus Episode 3 - A Festival Code of Conduct - Beginnings

    S2 Bonus Episode 3 - A Festival Code of Conduct - Beginnings

    If you've never been to a festival, it's the time of year to start planning your season out. Whether you make it to just one festival, or you make it to a bunch like we do, it's good to know what you're getting into.
    This year, Three Cranes Grove, ADF, is picking up the mantle and hosting the Summerland Gathering near Yellow Springs, Ohio, on August 13-16, 2020. If you've been riding along with us for a while, you'll know that we're big on consent, inclusivity, and cooperative work. So, before we put up any registration pages, we began developing a code of conduct for organizers, presenters, and participants.
    But of course, we have to build it first!
    After our first in-person meeting to work out the Code of Conduct, Rev. Avende and Rev. Dangler chatted about the process the Grove is going through, how it felt to engage, and what it's like to workshop a code like this.
    We're not done, but our start was promising, and we thought there was plenty of value in sharing our conversation.
    There are a few festivals mentioned in the introduction, so here are their links:
    ConVocation (Detroit, MI) - Feb. 20-23, 2020
    Pagan Fire Seminars (Columbus, OH) - April 4, 2020
    Trillium Gathering (Cross Junction, VA) - April 16-19, 2020
    Summerland (Yellow Springs, OH) - August 13-16, 2020
    Summerland doesn't have a direct registration page yet, but you'll know when it does. Also, Pagan Fire Seminars will have a remote attendance option!

    S2 Bonus Episode 2 - 360 Video and Tech In Ritual

    S2 Bonus Episode 2 - 360 Video and Tech In Ritual

    What is it about talking about technology in ritual that makes us do weird things? I dunno, but come and (literally) ride along with us this time!
    While we're usually audio-only, on our way to Harvest Nights Gathering in Connecticut, we decided to try something new. With a 360 camera in our back seat, we experimented to see what it might be like to sit and listen in. With the topic of tech in ritual, this seemed like an obvious opportunity to try something new and different out.
    You can check out the 360 video (and even put on a VR headset and watch as if you're in the car with us!) on YouTube! (You can also navigate the 360 video with your mouse pointer, or on a phone by moving the device in full screen.)
    The video carries the same audio podcast episode, so you won't miss anything if you watch this instead of listening to the pod, or vice versa.

    S2 Bonus Episode 1 - Initiateness vs. Clergyness

    S2 Bonus Episode 1 - Initiateness vs. Clergyness

    Here's a slightly special bonus feature: you can watch the conversation from a camera on our dash as we drive out to the Harvest Nights Gathering in Connecticut in October 2019. Check out the video on the 3CG YouTube page... and maybe consider subscribing, because there's another video we're also working on to release shortly!
    In this episode we talk about the similarities and the differences of being an ADF Initiate and an ADF Priest, how the direction we came at each role affects our experiences, and how those experiences manifest in our daily work and lives.
    This is one of the (many!) requested topics we received at the end of last season.
    The video is the same as our podcast episode, so you won't miss anything if you listen to this instead of watching the video, or vice versa.
    You can, of course, subscribe for a lot more content on our YouTube channel. We do all sorts of neat things there.

    Episode 42 - Season 2 Conclusion

    Episode 42 - Season 2 Conclusion

    We're at the end of Season 2, but we have plans for hiatus and Season 3! We'll tell you all about them, and give you an idea of what it's been like for us to do this podcast for the past two seasons.
    If you have ideas for future episodes, please send them to us, either via our Facebook page or via email. We really want to hear about what you're interested in, and we'll try and hit as many as we can on our trips. Plus, the trip we're taking to Harvest Nights next week is a pretty long drive, and we'll have our recorders!
    If you're looking for a great festival to start the year with, consider the Trillium Spring Gathering, an ADF festival in Northern Virginia. We'll be there, and the first episode of Season 3 will land on the Thursday most of us will be traveling to Trillium, so give a listen while you drive!

    Episode 41 - Social Media Resources, Diversity, and Work

    Episode 41 - Social Media Resources, Diversity, and Work

    One of our big things in Three Cranes Grove, ADF, is that we love to create. After Rev. Crystal Groves' discussion of marketing and social media strategies at Trillium 2019, we had a discussion about the creative process, what it means to connect people to others, and what it's like to produce the words for the really hard things that happen in our lives.
    We also talk about ensuring that people approaching Druidry are able to see themselves as valid, joyful participants in Druidry.
    If you're interested in Rev. Avende's book, "The Spiraling Sun," you can find it on Amazon or at The Magical Druid. While Rev. Avende works on that Greek Oracle book (hint, hint), you can check out another awesome project that was just released, "The Hearth Keepers Way: An ADF Hearth Keepers Guide!"

    Episode 40 - (In)toning For Ritual

    Episode 40 - (In)toning For Ritual

    What is toning? How do you do it? What's it good for? What's the lamest joke you've heard all day? We have the answers to all these questions and more in this episode! This episode was recorded at Trillium 2019, on the way home (we very much recommend Trillium if you're looking for a festival early next year).
    We're closing in on the end of our season, and running out of recorded material. But that's okay! We're developing an off-season plan so that you get more episodes and different content, plus new guests. And, we're headed to Harvest Nights in a few weeks, which is about 12 hours up and 12 hours back, so we'll have a lot of time to record and get new topics in.
    If you have topic suggestions, we'd love to hear them. Send us email or shoot us a message on our Facebook page. As always, find us at threecranes.org/podcast and learn more about Druidry at adf.org.
