Fellowship of Druidism for the Latter Age (FoDLA), Grove of the Bay

Contact person: Joel Schonbrunn
Phone: 408-693-5713
Location: Fremont

FoDLA is a fellowship of American polytheistic Pagans following the path of Draíocht Nua or Neo-Druidism. Our group is comprised of Neopagans who seek to follow the central spiritual values of traditional pre-Christian Celtic societies, best exemplified by the figure of the ancient Druid. These include, most particularly: A commitment to study, to honor the past and the path that has shaped us; A commitment to piety, to honor the gods and spirits that guide us; A commitment to hospitality, to honor the community and the Land it shares. Within this simple framework of shared values, FoDLA does not engage in passing judgment on matters of metaphysics. How each member of the fellowship conceives of the deities, the Otherworlds, and indeed the ultimate nature of the Cosmos, is a matter for the individual alone–guided by the commitment to study–and FoDLA advocates for tolerance of diverse beliefs within a bond of shared values and a set of basic worship practices.

The Grove is committed to holding public rituals in the Greater SF Bay region, including 1st Quarter Moon rituals, and the 4 “Fire Festivals” known by many names and spellings as Imbolc, Beltaine, Lughnasadh, and Samhain.  The Spring and Fall Equinox as well as the Summer and Winter Solstices are also celebrated with open public ritual.

Location: Berkeley, Walnut Creek

We’re of the old religion, sired of Time, and born of our beloved Earth Mother.  For too long the people have trodden a stony path that goes only onward beneath a sky that goes only upwards.  The Horned God plays in a lonely glad for the people are scatted in this barren age and the winds carry his plaintive notes over deserted heaths and  reedy moors and into the lonely grasses.  Who knows now the ancient tongue of the Moon?  And who speaks still with the Goddess?

  1. Hello …

    Thank you for includig our listing(s) for the Kemetic Reconstructionist Temples.

    I am the contact person for the Kemetic Temple of San Jose, and I wanted to make a correction on the phone number that was given to you for the listing.

    The CORRECT number should be : 650.283.4939
