PORTAL OF THE PORCUPINE
TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Eclectic Pagan/Serendipitous Wiccan
CONTACT NAME: Sue Wolfsong
FACEBOOK: Sue Wolfsong
We're a very loosely formed group without an official membership roster. More of a covenstead than an actual coven, the "Portal of the Porcupine" hosts open sabbats throughout the year and circles on request when the 'moon is full and sincere practitioners desire to gather for magikal & celebratory purposes'. The space is also available on request for small groups to join in for rituals.
Family friendly and embracing all ages and experiences, our events are comfortable for seekers from all paths. They are spiritual, but undogmatic & open to free-thinking people--generally informal where participants may have input during rituals if they're so moved.
Because this place is also a residence, the exact location of our gatherings is not posted on public lists. If you have any questions or would like to be included in our rituals and celebrations, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be put on the email list.
