A Brood is a group of Cicadians who come together with the common goal of enlightenment for themselves, their brood, their community, and mankind as a whole. Broods of Cicadians, much like broods of the periodical cicadas from which we take our name, remain hidden beneath the surface of mainstream society. Until the time has come when it is time for all Cicadians to emerge.
Broods currently exist in most major cities around the world, so there is probably a brood near you. If not, we have "At Large" broods which are internet-based. More information will be posted here in the coming weeks. Update: We will soon be accepting applications for brood founders in different locations.
Any time more than one Cicadian come together with the common goal of enlightenment, a temporary autonomous brood is formed. With intentionality and repitition, brood formation is a natural result of communion within the Cicadian fellowship.
