When I developed any affinity for a particular hearth culture, (in my case, the Saxon hearth culture) I created a lot of my own. ADF offers a lot of standardized stuff, as far as ritual is concerned, but I always liked my own personal prayer life with it. I do think they have a Hellenistic/Greek hearth culture group in one of the Kins on the website.

Ah, cool. As good a way as any to be drawn toward a religious/spiritual practice.
Wow, a Hellenic Druid group? 0.o Interesting...

How do you use it in yourJedi work?

Well, I'm actually no longer "Jedi"...but when I was I actually sort of fit Jediism into my existing beliefs, so it was more like I used Jedi stuff in my Hellenic practice/beliefs.

Yeah, they're called the "Oi Asproi Koukouvayies" (White Owls Kin). I don't know how active they are but it is a registered Kin on the website.

Cool :) I'd love to hear how you did that. In mine, I see some overlap in both, but they still seem like pretty separate things to me. It's created a very tiered worldview for me...like different planes of existence sharing space. I haven't been very active in the forums here in the past, mostly because I didn't really think I had much to say. I like the solitary spirituality in that regard. I am trying to change that though and make more of a presence so that if anything, at least people know who I am when I say something hahahaha.
If you have any questions about ADF, I'll do my best to answer them. I'm going on my third year with them there, but like most religious or spiritual backgrounds, there's always lots of new stuff to discover and I certainly don't know everything, lol.

So are you planning on finishing your apprenticeship for knighthood and maintaining that kind of a presence here, or is this just a place to kinda hang out for you?
