What we're about
The GAEA Meetup Group offers Friendship, Assistance and Education to anyone interested in meeting the Goddess, the Green Man and the Horned God. In honor of them, we provide this sacred space to meet, share and fellowship with others to build a strong support network in our local community. We are open to all Goddess Allied Pathways, which includes but is not limited to Asatru, Drago, Druid, Fae, Goddess, Isian, Magick, Mer, Pagan, Wicca and Witchcraft, and invite any Pagan Friendly Folks to join us.
GAEA is an Eclectic Grove with an established Coven within it for those interested in joining one and/or aspire to run your own. As a long term Grove, we are organized to ensure our members can depend upon us to be there for them. Our only request is to leave all Toads at home as they like to jump onto everything :-)
We at GAEA are shameless, ridiculous and totally able to laugh at ourselves. We are old, young and in between...female, male or any combination of the two. We live for gatherings, we delight in feeding people's souls and bellies, and we might at some point snuggle you to death. We love all things beautiful, especially our minds that we find sexy. We have a firm grasp on magick of all shades, but we know that magick is fluid and takes many forms, even silly ones and we do what works.
Who are we?
GAEA is an eclectic religious, educational and social organization devoted to the old age when the Goddess, Animals, Earth and Avalon were revered. The Avalon Grove has taught Goddess Allied Pathways that include, but is not limited to Asatru, Drago, Druid, Fae, Goddess, Isian, Magick, Mer, Pagan, Wicca and Witchcraft, since its inception.
What we do?
GAEA fills the Wheel of the Year with an active calendar of monthly religious rituals, social activities and educational classes. This includes the Esbats, Sabbats and other activities such as educational classes, personal enrichment activities, healing circles, environmentalism, discussion groups, community volunteer work, parties, trips and much more. We do not promote alcoholism, illegal drug use or anything else that is inappropriate for children and/or Military personnel; therefore, everything we do is “family/military friendly.”
How we do it?
GAEA is governed by the Global Avalon Path that follows an educational system of initiation and progression in an oath-bound path in accordance with typical coven protocols. The Global Avalon Educational Academy is the training facility for those interested in opening their own "GAEA Coven" as a "GAEA Coven Oracle Priestess or Priest." Other classes offered are Animal Magick, Aromatherapy, Elemental Magick, Healing Magick, Herbalism, Magickal Keeper, Oracle Seer, Rune Magick, StarGazer, Stone Deva, Tarot Magick and many more.
Where we do it?
GAEA conducts all activities in a protected Covenstead that is used by the GAEA Priesthood. It has a cozy, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where our love of the Goddess is venerated, where we come together as a Coven in celebration of the turning Wheel and where we study our lessons together.
