THE ARCHDRUID

M. Rev. E.J. OakLore

Rev. OakLore is a lover of nature and has been devoted to the study of metaphysics and philosophy since childhood. OakLore considers himself a “born Druid.” His call to the Elder Ways began at the age of 12 and was formalized in 1998 with his initiation and later ordination as a Wiccan Priest. Not long thereafter, he began exploring Druidry. Many years later he was inspired to answer the call from those who in the Pagan community sought a combined Druid and Wiccan tradition. In the spring of 2000, OakLore founded the Druidic Order of the Covenant of Avalon. In 2008 the Order was re-founded as The Fellowship of Anamastia, and later re-named The Druidcraft Fellowship.

OakLore has studied philosophy independently through a handful of universities, most notably Yale, Rutgers, and the University of Edinburgh (Scotland). He is a graduate of the University of Metaphysics, holding undergraduate and graduate degrees in Metaphysical Science, and is currently a Doctor of Theology candidate at the University of Sedona.

OakLore has been a frequent commentator in local and national media, helping to educate the public and correct misinformation about Pagan beliefs and practices. He has appeared on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, and his remarks have been published by the Associated Press, the Albany Times UnionThe New York Daily News, and The Washington Post.

In addition to his role as Archdruid of the Order, OakLore is also the High Priest of Heart of Manannán, the Mother Coven of TDF.  He also chairs the Council of Elders, and is Chancellor and Director of Seminary Studies of the Covenant of Avalon Theological Seminary.

Sis. Kirin Willows
ORGANIZER & FACILITATOR, Guardians of Light Protocoven

Sis. Kirin began her journey into the Craft and Druidry following the inspiration of her then fiancé, Bro. Draig Teine, around the Summer Solstice of 2008. It was upon that occasion that Sister Kirin witnessed her first ritual as an observer to the former Anamastia Coven’s Midsummer rite, which she graciously invited to take place on her land. Less than a year later, Sis. Kirin dedicated to that Coven during the rites of Beltaine, 2009. Sister Kirin has risen eagerly through the degrees and is today a second degree priestess.
