Very excited to have found this site. Would love to add a listing for the Order of the Sacred Grove, a modern American witchcraft tradition in the East Bay area. We are looking forward to planning our next apprentice cycle. Some basic information is below but to learn more about us and, if interested, to submit an apprentice application, seekers can visit us at http://orderofthesacredgrove.org/menu.html
You can also email us at email@example.com. The Order of the Sacred Grove is dedicated to the practice of witchcraft and to the establishment of the Temple of the Goddess. We are open to all who seek training and initiation into the ways of the wise. We are devoted to the Goddess in all of Her forms. OSG consists of independent but cooperative covens or groves within the larger order. Each coven develops its own patron gods and may follow an independent, but harmonious magickal current. We believe that witchcraft must remain a living tradition, and although traditional structure is essential, we allow for a free expression of dynamic and fluid energy to express itself through a working group.
The Order offers training for those who wish to become priestesses and priests of the Goddess. We are an initiatory tradition and apprentices are taught by mentors within the Order. We are open to all genders, however, it must be recognized that this is a Goddess oriented group. We encourage freedom of thought and individual expression; "Do What Thou Wilt, An It Harm None." We strive to accommodate a wide range of beliefs and practices.
We currently have two groves, one in Berkeley, CA and one in Concord, CA and we are looking to form new groves in Martinez, CA and one a but farther away in the Folsom CA area.
We would be happy to answer any questions you might have here in this thread or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Blessed be.
