Episode 9 - Discerning Vocation

Episode 9 - Discerning Vocation

June 28, 2018

In today's episode, we speak about vocation: how to recognize it, feed it, and understand where it's taking you. We also reflect on our own vocations, and how they've changed over time.

We don't just mean "preistly" vocation, though that takes up a good amount of the time, and we certainly don't just mean in ADF. This is an episode about finding what feeds you, and what fills you, and what it can do to benefit you and keep you from burning out.

The cartoon referenced early in the episode is "The Discernment Process," by Dave Walker at Cartoon Church. Find it here: http://cartoonchurch.com/content/cc/discernment/

This episode was recorded on the way to the 2018 ADF Trillium Spring Gathering.

Episode 8 - Experiences & Methods of Trance (with Rev. Ayliah Cannon)

Episode 8 - Experiences & Methods of Trance (with Rev. Ayliah Cannon)

June 21, 2018

This week, Jan was fortunate to speak with Rev. Ayliah Cannon about trance experiences and how they do the work.

In the discussion, they talk about a variety of trance mechanics and experiences, including where we go in trance, how we get there, and how it feels when we arrive.

More than that, though, they dive into ways to discern the reality of trancework, how to exit trance, and the importance of journaling the work.

This episode was recorded on the way home from the 2018 ADF Wellspring Gathering.

Episode 7 - Becoming a Senior Priest

Episode 7 - Becoming a Senior Priest

June 14, 2018

What's it like to go a bit deeper down the rabbit hole of priesthood, and find yourself in new territory as a priest, and elevated to heights you weren't really expecting?

Here, Rev. Dangler talks about what it’s like to become a Senior Priest in ADF. For background, ADF has three levels of Priest: ADF Priest, ADF Consecrated Priest, and ADF Senior Priest. Rev. Dangler is a Senior Priest.

The process of becoming a Priest we describe here might seem unique to ADF, but the lessons and observations are actually quite broad for anyone seeking or advancing through their study toward Priesthood, no matter the tradition.

This episode was recorded as we arrived at the 2018 ADF Trillium Spring Gathering.

Episode 6 - Slipping Into Your Clergy Skin

Episode 6 - Slipping Into Your Clergy Skin

June 7, 2018

In this episode, we talk about what it's like to find comfort in our skin as clergy, as Initiates, and even as Grove members. We discuss a lot of the practicalities of inclusion, where responsibility for it lies, and how to reach out if you don't feel included, or if you can't find your role in a group or Grove.

This episode was recorded on the way to the 2018 ADF Trillium Spring Gathering, and it was an early discussion between Rev. Avende and myself.
