Tradition/Spirtual Path: Eclectic
Contact Name: Aje
We are forming an inclusive and friendly network in the Central New York region for those who practice witchcraft, Wicca, folk traditions, revivalist and reconstructed religions, as well as those who engage in the esoteric and mystery schools. This group is where we can encourage discussion and debate, and therefore it is expected that everyone will be respectful of others; this is a place that should act as a network where information can be exchanged. Neither proselytizing, nor any conduct that is disrespectful of another chosen religion or tradition will be tolerated.
