We are an open, eclectic Pagan circle. Our unifying thread is an Earth-based spirituality, revering the Earth and her interdependent web of life. We do not follow any one particular Pagan path – rather we embrace them all. Those who believe in one God or Goddess, many Gods and Goddesses, or no Gods at all are welcome in our midst.
Our rituals reflect this variety of beliefs and are run by volunteers from our membership. Since our members follow a variety of paths, you may experience anything from a Wiccan ritual, or a Druid high day, to a Buddhist meditation, a Yoruba celebration, or an Eclectic Pagan rite that draws from several traditions..
We generally meet on the first and third Fridays of each month at the Owen Brown Interfaith Center in Columbia, Maryland (OBIC.) Sometimes we do shift dates, so please check our calendar to confirm an event. Drop-ins are always welcome to join us!
