Study and Practice Circle is a developing community for the newest of practitioners, as well as seasoned individuals. We do not discriminate against sex, race, gender, or individual beliefs and practices. We encourage our members to study various traditions and practices to establish a craft that best fits their needs. Disrespect of any other member will result in banishment from the circle. As the circle is still developing, we plan to hold bi-monthly Esbats in addition to classes and workshops. Our circle will also have the capacity to develop a separate coven entity for select members who show their eagerness to explore the craft. Kristofer Calhoun is the creator of this study circle. He has been practicing since the age of 9 years old and is now 20. He has background knowledge pertaining to crystal magick, herbalism, various methods of divination, practices from various spiritual traditions, deities from multiple pantheons, practical magick, as well as magick philosophy and years of spell and ritual experience. Members are encouraged to know the basics and pass an entry quiz to be a verified member of the circle. (Don’t stress if you’re just starting, we will provide resources to study!) Feel free to reach me on gmail firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name, location, age, time of experience, and what you wish to obtain by joining the circle. Members must be 18+ or parental consent must be obtained to verify your membership.

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft
CONTACT NAME: Ember
WEBSITE: OHIO RECLAIMING WITCHCRAFT
Ohio Reclaiming Witchcraft (ORW) is a community for Witches in and near Ohio in the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft. We originally posted a listing here in January 2020, when this community was just getting started. We are updating in September 2023, as we celebrate two years of Reclaiming community in Ohio! We have developed an active core group of participants, and have held regular gatherings online and in person since 2021.
While many of our current members are based in northeast Ohio, we also have community members from around Ohio and out of state who connect with us online. We are connected with other Reclaiming communities in neighboring states, around the country, and around the world. We are also active in our regional Witchcamp community. ORW is not a coven, but a local community hub within the wider web of our tradition. You can find more information on our blog, linked above.
You can read more about the Reclaiming Tradition of Witchcraft at https://reclaiming.org/ and of particular interest will be the Principles of Unity (POU), which describe our overall values as a global tradition and how we approach being in community together: https://reclaiming.org/principles-of-unity/ The POU was updated in 2021.
Reclaiming has been described in many ways: non-hierarchical, communal, ecstatic, social justice oriented, activist, intersectional, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, queer- and trans- inclusive and affirming, Witchcraft. If you've heard of Starhawk and the book "The Spiral Dance", then you've heard a bit about Reclaiming from before it was its own tradition; it's grown and evolved over the past four decades! It is a living tradition. If you fill out our contact form, you will have a chance there to ask questions, and we'll start a conversation from there. Please be patient as just a couple of our members volunteer to reply to contact requests!
Blessings from ORW – honoring all the paths that lead us here.

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Faery/Feri
CONTACT NAME: L.D.
Hagstone is part of the Anderson Faery/Feri tradition of witchcraft. Lineage for Hagstone is through the Vicia line, specifically the Mandorla coven as well as the Moonstone coven of early transgender Faery priestess Lilly Rose (Taber). Vicia is a Goddess-centric tradition, however it is inclusive. The Goddess in Faery/Feri is experienced as both immanent and transcendent and may manifest not only in feminine form, but also masculine, gender-fluid, and non-binary. Hagstone was founded by midwest Vicia representative, L.D. in 2019. Hagstone focuses on what its founder considers the core aspects of the Faery/Feri faith: The Goddess, The triune soul, purification and alignment through ritual, the cultivation and ethics of power (from-within and shared/with), animism, and embodiment. Additionally, it also draws from the broader wells of the western esoteric tradition and puts special emphasis on ancestor work, inner vision/journeying, and the green magic of herbalism and the land. L.D. is open to making local connections with those 21+ who are seriously interested in learning about this unique form of American Witchcraft. Initial meetings will always start with zoom and then may progress to tea/coffee. Please note, Faery/Feri is initiatory and meeting/conversation do not assure training or initiation.
