The Triple Triads

As the Grove re-creates the Cosmos in our rites, we honor three triads: The Kindred (The Gods, Ancestors and Nature Spirits), The Three Realms (Land, Sea and Sky), and the Tribe (Warriors, Producers and Scholars). Often in our liturgy we honor all three separately, but the Grove had an idea to combine all three triads (hence “Triple Triads”) into a single offering – to honor all by connecting them together. This is the Triple Triad Wild Onion Grove uses for that purpose.

From the Boundless Sky

Home of the Gods and Goddesses,

The shining plane where Scholars dream.

Where all that inspires, teaches and empowers pours forth.

We ask Your Realm to open to ours

As we celebrate the coming Spring.

From the Bountiful Land

Home of the Ancestors,

The fertile fields where the Producers toil

Where all that sustains, comforts and creates emerges.

We ask Your Realm to open to ours

As we celebrate the coming Spring.

From the Brilliant Sea

Home of the Nature Spirits,

The rolling waves that carry the Warriors to battle

Where all that explores, protects and mystifies coalesces.

We ask Your Realm to open to ours

As we celebrate the Season.
