Pagan Clergy


Located in: Alençon, France

Clergy Profile: About Handfasting*: In France, the legally binding contract between a husband and wife is the civil ceremony, held at the local prefecture or city hall. Religious wedding ceremonies are optional. Therefore, if you're getting married in Paris, and you'd also like a pagan rite performed, I am at your service.

*[In any case, as traditional handfastings involve no marriage license and are only meant to be binding by word of mouth for a year and a day anyway, there should be no concern about any legal ramifications wherever you have your handfasting. As far as the bureaucrats are concerned, unlicensed handfasting is just a crazy hippie engagement ceremony!]

I have over 25 years experience as a coven witch, a solitary practitioner and a degreed HPS. I was trained in Hedgewitchery by my first teacher and, following that introduction, the home coven of my foundation was straight-up Gardnerian Trad. I later moved on and joined the Eclectic Family Trad coven one of my Elders started which was extremely loose-goose and informal . I hived off from that coven in 1996 after really struggling to have my well-earned 3rd degree conferred, having been initially deemed too young to be ready for it, and I've been Elder Matriarch (an Elder at age 33!) of Dragondarke Clan ever since. In the intervening years I've organized and facilitated several pagan workshop groups, have worked as a intuitive counselor and Tarot reader, and done more or less all that a career HPS does (ie, organizing and officiating Ritual, performing Rites of Passage, dealing with intolerant cowans in the public setting of an occult shop and at Clanstead, sheltering battered women, etc) . Todate, I am the only member of my coven to reach 4th Degree (in the Witcan Tradition, which offers 4 degrees instead of the more typical 3) .

Recently, as I have had no luck finding any community yet in these 10 years that I've lived in France , I have started a blog called An American Witch In Paris ( as a venue and portal for organizing something for the English-speaking neo-pagans here. Anyone who is interested in participating in a non-denominational Open Circle, celebrating the Sabbats and Esbats, attending workshops and possibly even Pathworking toward degrees, please get in touch with me by e-mail. If you're clergy or at least keen to help organize, please bring that to my attention in your email. Also be sure to mention either "Witch Haven Circle" or "WHC" in the subject line so I'll be able to tell that you're not a spammer.

Blessed Be All!
