What we're about

We are a tradition of Witchcraft based in the DC/NOVA/MD area. We put on public rituals for many of the sabbats as well as a number of classes on various Wiccan and Witchcraft-related topics. We are also a Wiccan tradition that people can participate in casually, or through the deeper path of initiation. All respectful individuals are welcome!

All About the Firefly House

Online event

With the approach of Spring comes the Firefly House's annual Foundations Classes. As the name implies, these classes are focused on building a foundation of information that we think is important if you're interested in joining the House as an initiate or if you're simply curious about Paganism in general.

This online session is where we'll do our best to introduce you to the House in general, it's history, and what we do. We also treat this event as an "Ask-a-Pagan" sort of thing, so if you've any questions that you've always wanted to ask about witchcraft, Wicca, or Paganism in general, this is a good session to find an answer!

This event is not a required part of our aforementioned Foundations Classes, but we do recommend that you try to make it if you're thinking of attending them. Those classes are only required if you want to join the Firefly House as an initiate, something that we will explain during our Q&A, and those classes will take place in March, April, and May.

Foundations One: Introductions to Wicca and Wiccan History

Online event

For our first class in the Firefly House Foundations series, we’re going to discuss an introduction to and history of Wicca as it pertains to the Firefly House. While the House is not exclusively Wiccan, roughly one-third of us claim that identity, we think of ourselves as having been nourished by its ideas. So, we think it's important to have a sense of what it is and its history as you get to know more about the House it self.

The class comes in two parts: there are two videos to watch (both about 30 minutes) and then we'll meet during this session to discuss the content of those videos. This way, our time together can be focused on your thoughts and questions rather than a lecture covering material that we can deliver faster, and hopefully more interestingly, through the videos.

When you RSVP, you’ll be asked to enter an email address to which we’ll send you links to the videos. We’ll also share a link to our Discord server with you. We’re hoping that it will allow for some impromptu conversations between you and other folks in the House. We won't share or distribute your addresses in anyway; we only collect them to get you the course materials.

For now, we're planning on this being an online-only event. We'll adjust that thinking and, perhaps, hold a hybrid event, pandemic permitting.
