I have been an active practitioner since the age of 11, and while my beliefs have evolved so far since then I am beyond grateful for the journey. I have had the chance to meet various adherents to Witchcraft and Pagan spiritual systems in my area and the larger surrounding ones.
I was part of large local coven where I completed my year and a day of Wiccan beliefs in High School, only to leave later due to not finding Wicca to be authentic for myself. I have formed a coven and allowed it to disband after trusting the wrong people (well PERSON), getting taken advantage of sucks especially when you built something.
I have fallen in the middle of a Witch War (all jokes aside this was some nasty shit and I truly hope not a common occurrence). This pretty much destroyed my local community. Theres really only one group left but they fall more in the line of pot smoking hippies than effigy burning witches.
In all of this I have found myself. I am not a Wiccan and not a Trad Witch, but something in between. My practice is somewhere between green and kitchen witchery lots of herbs and poisons. I like low magic and the philosophies of Hoodoo practice since it is primarily an American made tradition, and my Grams taught me more of it than she knows. I serve Hekate and Pan as Queen and King of my practice.
I am a licensed cosmetologist. Animal lover. Art geek. Geek in general. Book lover. Nature Lover. Gay!

This new group is designed to help to give the pagan community more voice, more presence, and allow the people that are scattered by so many egos, paths, and issues to come together for the betterment of the community. To swallow our pride, to fight our ego, to embrace the divine in each other and use that power to have a political voice, a community service plan, and a network of so many wonderful brothers and sisters.
We invite each and every one of you to join the new group: and help me in this worthy cause.
This group is OURS. As such, we seek many. Those that can help with web sites, politics, organization, business, teaching, sites, leg work, ritual leaders, schmoozing and everything else. We embrace those that come with pure intention of making our community stronger and more united.
This is NOT for one type of pagan. We call to all that follow energy, craft magick, stylize ritual, or embrace the divine.
This group is not for judgment. We all have different tolerance, desires, beliefs, and perceptions. We must learn to accept everyone's. As Pagans we need to be able to do this because we have people looking at us to set the example..
