Merry Meet and Welcome to the San Diego North County Pagans!
Who we are:
This community, which began in the Spring of 2003, supports those who walk all paths, from Shamans, Druids, Witches and Wiccans, to Buddhists, Hindus, Occultists, and many other Spiritual Paths. We welcome a wide variety from solitaries, to covens and informal groups, to anyone with an open mind. Whatever your level of experience, you will be welcome here! We are an eclectic community, recognizing that no one single approach to Divinity is the "right" or "true" way. We all have things to teach, inspire and share with each other. Please have patience, tolerance, respect, and compassion for your fellow members. We're all here to learn and grow.
We are not an online group. We encourage our members to be active and contribute!
What we do & what do you need to know:
The mission of this meetup is to plan and support Pagan events that are community driven. When you contribute your energy, ideas, and time, it reflects the needs and desires of the community. Even a novice can contribute to help us celebrate the Sabbats, organize classes, and coordinate our yearly Samhain camping retreat. Some of the other types of meetups we have offered are classes of various topics, healing circles, divination parties, day trip adventures and so much more.
We have primarily been an in-person meetup up until the pandemic where we moved to a virtual platform for events. However, post-pandemic, we are still evaluating the needs of the community. Whether in person or virtually, we encourage our members to be active and contribute! If you are inactive for 6 months or longer, you’ll be removed to make space for someone on the waiting list.
Yes, we started a waiting list, as mentioned, when we implemented a membership cap in October 2019. Also, for security and the privacy of our meetup, we have a vetting process for in person attendance. If you’d like to join and attend one of our meetups, please be aware that you will be contacted by an Organizer for questions and introductions.
Our meetups are family friendly and “adults only” events will be specified as so.
All our meetups are free apart from our annual campout reservation costs. Part of being in service, is to give back, and so we do. If you’d like to contribute to the cost of supplies, the meetup listing or make a donation, we will gladly accept but all proceeds go back into the meetup. Feel free to contact the Organizer with any questions.
Where we are:
We're based in North San Diego county, approximately from Oceanside to Escondido and south towards Del Mar and Poway. We have both public and private events. If you’re willing to travel, we’re willing to have ya!
When we do events:
We celebrate the turning of the wheel, the seasonal 8 celebrations, known as Sabbats, that mark changes in the solar cycle. We also celebrate the lunar cycles which can include Full Moons, known as Esbats, to New Moons and everything in between. While some of these have fixed dates, sometimes we celebrate on the closest weekend.
