The Circle of Oaks Grove
Wiccan and Pagan Grove with Focus on Gardnerian

wheel of the year.png

The founder of this group has been practicing The Craft in a Gardnerian coven since being initiated in 2001 (Long Island Line). This Grove is strictly geared towards Wicca as it came from the British Isles, with a respectful dash of some other influences. A Wiccan Grove (also called an Outer Court) acts like a pre-initiate training group. It is for people that are interested in joining a traditional Coven but we do not guarantee initiation.

 

We welcome all who are over 21 years old and who can dedicate themselves to learning about Wicca and to their own spiritual growth. We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, marital/parental status, race, or sexual orientation. We denounce all forms of bigotry.

 

As per tradition, we do not charge a fee however there is much to know on this Path so much commitment is necessary. We generally invite interested people that we have met in person to a couple sabbat celebrations. If all parties believe that a good match has been made we will start the training process. This group will provide dedicants to the group a solid beginning foundation of the beliefs and practices of Wicca. Dedicants usually meet a couple weekends a month to celebrate the 8 annual Witches Sabbats and meetings in between.

 

Our approach is experiential, educational, participatory, creative and hands-on. Some of the topics that will be discussed and explored include:

 

  • History of Traditional Witchcraft and Wicca

  • Dedication to The Craft

  • Different Traditions (focus on Gardnerian)

  • The Goddess & God

  • The 8 Witches Sabbats

  • The Witch's Tools

  • Circle Construction (Creation of Sacred Space)

  • Magic & Ethics

  • Various Forms of Divination

  • Apothecary and Herbology

  • Basic Energy Exercises

  • Spell Craft Techniques

  • Various Religions and Paths

  • Literature

  • and more...
