County: Los Angeles

A collective effort of each of its priestess, Coven of the Mother Mountain Aerie follows an eclectic spiritual path with a focus on woman-energy, goddess archetypes, and the maid-mother-crone cycle, creating their own mythology and traditions where needed as they walk and weave their convoluted paths. This woman-only group tries to find a way to make the goddess relevant to their lives here and now as modern day suburban witches, through art, music, poetry, or other symbolism and metaphor, and is committed to sharing positive magic, affirming the goddess within, celebrating the seasons of the earth, and enjoying one another's energy.

Delaware

The Circle of the Sapphire Star

Website Address: http://members.aol.com/saphrstar9/sapphirestar/

City: Newark

County: New Castle

Email Address:Saphrstar9@aol.com

The Circle of the Sapphire Star is a Wiccan Coven in Northern Delaware that is dedicated to the idea of Service; working toward serving others is integral to the structure of the group.

We work to attune ourselves with the Earth, Moon, Sun and the cycles of the heavens, with other Realms, and with each other. Sapphire Star is dedicated to the understanding that education is the key to ensuring the future of Wicca as a viable religious choice. We do not worship one pantheon, but are eclectic in our approach and call upon deities and pantheons that best suit our workings. Qabala and Astrology are integral parts of who we are, as well as foci of our educationals. We see covens not just as an avenue to explore the religion of Wicca, but as a place to train those who seek to become Wiccan clergy, through the path of Initiation.

Our hope is that The Circle of the Sapphire Star becomes a beacon to assist people on their path of personal growth, as well as to help deepen individual and group understanding and connection to the Sacred that is within, as well as without.

The Witch Niche

Website Address:www.witchniche.com

City:Fayetteville

County:fayette

Email Address:webmaster@witchniche.com

The Witch Niche is a loose-knit organization dedicated to promoting religious tolerance through it's actions and content. As alternative religions continue to grow, we believe that social and political pressures can be overcome through respect and understanding between differing viewpoints. While our perspective is largely a Pagan one, we hope to foster mutual respect and information exchange between Pagan and Christian entities. We believe that the best hope for our religious freedom is a larger understanding of our beliefs and a dispelling of general misinformation regarding Pagan religions.

City:Wichita

County:Sedgwick

Email Address:leanashe@wichitalife.com

Caer Vedis is a group of like minded people in Kansas and the surrounding area. This group is a teaching and learning environment for a Pagan spiritual path. This group is intended to be a place to share ideas and discuss current events in our lives and the Pagan community, also a place to work together, learn and teach together. We seek to provide a group that is supportive and friendly for not only ourselves but the local Pagan community. Caer Vedis means home of the spirit of the forest. This group has similarities to covens and groves in it's structure and goals. Even though the name is a combination of Celtic and Irish names, this group is not necessarily a tradition focused group. The main teacher for this group is Soseneda Arianrhod. She will be teaching from her personal belief and practice system. This group will also have many guest teachers, and together we will explore other traditions and practices. Part of being a member here is being not only a student but a teacher also. Also check out our group on egroups at VedisBeggings or CaerVedis

************NEED INFORMATION**************My name is Lori Walter. I am a pagan and I work for the Federal government as a Wage and Hour Technician. This coming fiscal year we are having a "faith-based" initiative to educate people in New Jersey on the laws we enforce. Various religious groups are being contacted to find ways of educating the people that follow them. For example, the Catholic diocese in the Cumberland area may be contacted in order to educate the Mexicans who are working as migrant workers on farms. Also, the Hindu community in Middlesex County is to be contacted because of the amount of H-1b visa recipients who follow that religion. I would love to participate in this but have absolutely no statistics as to the occupations & pay rates of pagans such as myself in the southern New Jersey area. These numbers would give me a way to possibly focus on helping other pagans with wage or hour problems and providing the information to educate them about the laws. Does anyone know if there are statistics about us anywhere publicly? Do we know of any surveys (official or otherwise) where this information has been accumulated?

County:Columbia

Email Address:witches_equinox@yahoo.com

We are looking for stable, balanced people who enjoy working with others. People looking for a counseling group or a power trip need not even ask. Although we think that it is important to support our members in their lives, we cannot and will not try to fix your life for you. Only you can change you. We are looking for people who want to make a commitment. We are not telling you to give up your normal life, but we do consider this spiritual work to be important. This means that you are willing to and CAN make time for coven events. We think that each person needs to take their path seriously. This doesn't mean that we don't have fun ,we do!A sense of humor is important. We laugh - a lot. You have to be a practicing witch within the group. We expect members to maintain their own personal spiritual practices - but have to acknowledge that in order to work together, we need to have a common practice as a group. You have to be dedicated to your own learning. Knowledge comes from self-discipline and practice.
