Group Overview: MoonFire is a Witchcraft circle group that follows the Wiccan Rede and was formed back in 1999. Teachings are available only to those who are over the age of 25. (some exceptions may apply) .
Come celebrate a Full Moon or join in a Sabbath. No pretentiousness just with reverence joy and mirth. No claims to fam trads, or to our grannies being Witches etc. just everyday Kitchen Witches who have a strong connection to ancient ways. All our Grandmothers from the past had a connection to the land so we as humans all have that. So come join and reconnect with our Earth, Sun and Moon.
MoonFire sprang out of the BlackRing lineage based out of Calgary, Alberta. Blackring is comprised of an eclectic background of mostly three main traditions. All teachers from MoonFire are initiates. So in other words are real "Witches" with initiated & lineage backgrounds.
If your looking for more than just lectures and want a hands on joyful approach from ecstatic to eclectic to formal then this could be for you. A strong emphasis will be on teaching you "how to do" and a lot more. By the time your done taking your first degree you should be able to cast a circle and prepare rituals. (Hopefully without being terrified) . In addition a strong emphasis will be on natural energies and herbalogy and the healing arts, witches runes etc..
1st degree classes meet biweekly, or weekly for hands on learning in sacred space. This will cover a lot of ground so hold onto your brooms. Initiation is available only to those who have completed the classes and aren't going through problems such as divorce or addictions. When your not sound and grounded you can't make a proper decision regarding initiation. Lineage provided upon initiation. (A subject list can be provided.)
2nd degree, requires 1st degree to be completed or years of experience. (A note from your previous initiator is required to prove initiation, unless we know you've been initiated) and it is a deeper commitment to the Gods and your journey will delve deeper into the Mysteries and will require you to meet once a month and can usually be completed within 1.5yrs to 2yrs (is the norm) .
3rd degree classes require you to have completed 1st & 2nd degrees again letters unless we know you and usually can be completed in a year and a day. Initiation is old school and will also require 5 (yes five) , other third degrees to attend the ritual to make it valid. Remember all of the third degree work that you do leads up to your initiation and will have put you in touch with other 3rd degrees during your year and a day, This also gives you a solid base and valid acknowledgement and acceptance within the community of other 3rd degrees.
For 3rd degree is based on Pagan community work it will be required & encouraged that you attend some larger pagan festivals out of town, locally, various events, workshops, lead or help at pagan functions, teach something and join groups. It will be encouraged for you to visit other cities or towns to meet with leaders of groups led by Witches, Pagans or Druids to broaden your base of Witchcraft and Pagan contacts and experience. 3rd degree is really about community and being in contact with the larger Pagan community around the world.
MoonFire has access to various other Witchcraft groups to help round out your spiritual journey. Initiation is not to be taken lightly or given to those who do not complete the required material.
No one will be fast tracked through classes and receive their initiation without completing the outline of study. If you have taken classes with someone else and quit details can be discussed and your experience will be taken into consideration.
It normally takes a Witch about 10years+ to obtain all three degrees. It will be recommended that you "Turn the Wheel of the Year" for at least one year before starting a new degree. That way you will actually learn what it means to be immersed fully into that degree while turning the wheel before spiral dancing into another. It will help you be more prepared to possibly teach others Witchcraft. We take pride in MoonFire initiates.
Also to note it is a wonderful journey to find out who you are on this path however if you are going through a rough road such as divorce, emotional stresses, such as extreme loneliness, perhaps jobless etc. we are happy that you can find peace with the Gods in the Craft, but please seek proper counsel from a proper therapist. Spiritual leaders in no way replace real proper counselling. We also suggest not to take on classes during stressful periods of your life because you need to focus on you and know that the Goddess always walks with you.
