Hawkfire Coven - Gardnerian
Group Name: Hawkfire Coven
Tradition/Spirtual Path: Online/Other
Contact: Wren Robin
Hawkfire Coven is an online Gardnerian outer court, dedicated to sincere Seekers of diverse backgrounds who, for equally diverse reasons (including economic, geographic, etc.), cannot pursue Gardnerian Witchcraft in a traditional coven. Since the egregore formed in a physical coven is a truly unique and exceptional experience, Hawkfire Coven will also help sincere Seekers locate covens within their geographic region before admitting them to its own outer court.
This is an inclusive and intersectional coven.
It's an on-line coven, but initiations/elevations will be in person.
If Seekers simply need help finding physical covens near them, I will help, because I love this craft and it's the least I can do.
If a Sincere Seeker can't join a traditional coven due to distance, income, physical reasons, non-inclusivity, etc., then Hawkfire Coven may be a good option.
Hawkfire Coven is open to different time-zones, experience levels, and beliefs, but is a traditional Gardnerian Coven.
For International Seekers, Coven meetings are run in English.

Group Name: Ariadne's Tribe
Tradition/Spirtual Path: Modern Minoan Paganism
Modern Minoan Paganism is a living spirituality that is an ongoing process of connecting more deeply with the Web of Life. The people who lived on Crete four millennia ago and before enjoyed thousands of years of peace and prosperity, even as their neighbors were often enveloped in war and strife. We work to bring the same blessings into our lives and the world around us through building relationships with the same goddesses and gods they knew and loved.
Modern Minoan Paganism is a welcoming path, happily open to people of any race, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability level, disability, geographic location, language, education, or socio-economic status. Anyone who feels a connection with the gods and goddesses of the Modern Minoan pantheon, and wishes to develop a spiritual practice in relationship with them, is welcome. Modern Minoan Paganism is not an exclusive tradition. Members are welcome to participate in other traditions and spiritual paths at the same time as they practice Modern Minoan Paganism, as long as those other traditions do not prohibit them from doing so.
Gala Witchcraft - Wicca/Male Mysteries
Group Name: Gala Witchcraft
Tradition/Spirtual Path: Wicca/Male Mysteries/Gay Witchcraft
Gala Witchcraft is not just Wicca for Gay men. With the addition of the Male Mysteries to modern Wicca, Gala Witchcraft is the re-emergence of a Gay priesthood. We do not claim to be a continuation of those august and ancient orders of Gay male priests that populated the ancient world, but a modern incarnation of the same energetic current.
Operating from the premise that Gay men were viewed as magical in every culture and that there are magical and spiritual practices exclusive to Gay men in every culture, Gala endeavors to transcend culture, pantheon, or system. The foundations of our tradition are European Witchcraft, specifically Wicca, but, like Gay men, we believe that the witch was also universal. Oshun and Yemaya are both credited with being witches within the African Diaspora Religions (ADRs). The Native American tribes had their medicine men. Several aboriginal cultures speak of witch doctors. Even Taoism has a "witchy" practitioner. No one culture owns the archetypal concept of the witch. In Gala, we actively encourage our members to explore the rich history of what it means to be a Gay male witch within their own ancestral framework.
Initiates of Gala are from all ethnicities, races, and backgrounds. Gala uses the Theosophical idea that every religion has a spark of truth within it, and we encourage each other to explore the universal occult truths. The men who participate in our tradition just happen to practice witchcraft as well as contribute to the re-awakening of the Gay Mystery Traditions.
