TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Eclectic Paganism/Witchcraft
CONTACT NAME: Lady Kythera
This is currently an idea rather than a fully active group. I'm trying to form a coven of LGBTQIA+ pagans and witches to practice with. Once an initial 3-5 others are found, we can determine logistics for the group (structure, an official name, a tradition, etc.) Ideally, I'm looking for others within the DMV area to accommodate regular group ritual, discussions, gatherings, etc. I would specifically like this to be an in person group to provide a community.
