In an article on the ADF website, "What do Neo Pagans Believe?"

-- ADF Founder, Isaac Bonewits is quoted as saying :

"Connecting to the Cosmos

We believe in the importance of celebrating the solar, lunar and other cycles of our lives. We consciously observe the solstices, equinoxes and the points in between, as well as the phases of the moon. Such "rites of intensification" are human universals, as are the various ceremonies known as "rites of passage" -- celebrations of birth, puberty, personal dedication to a given deity or group, marriage, ordination, death, etc."
