Group Overview: The Fellowship of the Spiral Path (also known as "Spiral") is a non-profit religious corporation registered under the laws of the State of California. We are an association of neo-pagan groups in Northern California that acknowledge that we share traditions, beliefs, and/or lines of descent in the Old Religion (including but not limited to reconstructed European traditions, Earth religion, and Goddess religion) . We have joined together for purposes of inspiration, mutual solidarity, support, and protection. Our purpose is to provide religious and spiritual services to the community, sponsor special interest groups and projects, and encourage diversity of religious expression. We are supported by donations from those who participate in our activities and benefit from our services.
The Fellowship has no official creed. The only requirement for participation in our services is an open mind. However those of us who participate in Fellowship activities regularly do tend to share certain assumptions. These include the ideas that there is a Divine Power, that this power manifests through both female and male deities, and that it can be contacted both through individual inspiration and formal ritual. We also believe that the physical and spiritual worlds are connected, and that both are holy.
In the twentieth century the environmental and feminist movements started people looking for theologies that value the earth for its own sake, and honor the Goddess as well as God. Working together, they sought to recover the interrupted Native European traditions and to explore new ways of worship. Many of these groups follow the old earth religion of Wicca and call themselves witches, while others use the techniques of ceremonial magic, shamanism or work to reconstruct the practice of a specific cultural tradition such as Greek or Germanic.
In l981 the Center for Non-Traditional Religion was founded in Berkeley to host a variety of alternative religious groups and activities. In l986 the CNTR was reorganized as the Fellowship of the Spiral Path, a new tradition of the Old Religion, sponsoring worship and other activities for both women and men.
The Fellowship of the Spiral Path offers three public events every month in Berkeley, California. The last Sunday of every month is usually a Liturgy to the Lady, honoring the Goddess as Maiden, Mother, or Crone depending on the season of the year. The first Tuesday of the month is usually Gateway Circle, a demonstration circle led by one of Spiral's member groups. The second Tuesday varies and is sometimes an oracular seidh.
