[A WitchVox Sponsor]


Located in: Chicago, Illinois



Clergy Profile: Ordained through the Universal Life Church, I have been conducting hand fasting and traditional wedding ceremonies for almost 10 years.

Currently, I organize Center of the Elemental Spirit, an eclectic congregational group for Wiccans and Pagans.

With over 22 years in Wicca, I have seen many changes happen. When I started out, Covens were the main way to be involved with a few Solitary Practitioners to be found. As the Craft has "come out of the broom closet" more information is available than ever before. What does not seem to be there is the sense of Spiritual Community we had all those years ago. We have many wonderful social outlets these days. They serve a tremendous purpose and I am thrilled they exist. However, as times evolve, it seems fair to say we can evolve as well. What I look forward to with this meet up is what a friend of mine has affectionately termed "Congregational Wicca", a place where people can join together, learn, build a foundation and grow as individual spiritual beings without a full ritual to take place with every gathering. My hope is that this idea will find others with a similar interest in joining in a spiritual community.

The lessons given are founded in Wiccan teachings of many traditions as well as some philosophy and theology from Buddhism, Shamanism, Transcendentalism and wherever else we may find inspiration. Please join us on this journey. Visit http://www.meetup.com/ElementalSpirit for upcoming dates, times and locations.

I also teach several classes on Wicca and am available to counsel with new groups about how to begin working together, either in a tradition or on an eclectic coven setting.

Rates: I believe every event is a personal journey for those involved and the most impersonal thing I can do is put a price tag on it before we even speak. I offer a free consultation so that we may determine if I am the best fit for your event and union.
