What we're about

Many changes are happening in the Wiccan and Pagan communities these days. Years ago, Covens were the main way to be involved with a few Solitary Practitioners to be found. As the Craft has "come out of the broom closet" more information is available than ever before. What does not seem to be there is the sense of Spiritual Community we had all those years ago. We have many wonderful social outlets these days. They serve a tremendous purpose and it is a blessing they exist.

However, as times evolve, it seems fair to say our community can evolve as well. What we have created with this meet up is "Congregational Wicca", a place where people can join together, learn and grow as individual spiritual beings while understanding the basics to build their own foundation. We hope that this idea will find others with a similar interest in joining in a spiritual community.

Our meetup format is:

-Meet and Greet
-Short grounding meditation
-Open discussion and Q&A on the meet up topic
-Short break
-Circle based on the meet up topic (This is a learning circle where all of the steps and symbolism involved in the circle are explained).

The discussions are founded in Wiccan teachings of many traditions as well as some philosophy and theology from Buddhism, Shamanism, Transcendentalism and wherever else we may find inspiration. Please join us on this journey.
