Message us privately here, on our page, or email us anytime at: email@example.com
We believe in holding a higher standard for leadership and integrity within the Pagan community to create a safe space for Pagans. We promote building community over gathering followers and we teach self-empowerment in all things. In operation since 2011, we are the oldest still-active, and largest organized public Pagan group in the Magic Valley. We strive to be a great source for networking and connecting with other covens and smaller private groups in the area. (If you have questions about any particular group, send us a private message and we can discuss any experiences we've had.)
We extend friendship and support, along with community benefits that include clergy services, spiritual counseling, psychic and intuitive coaching, advocacy, wisdom, and workshops.
We offer a teaching and practice group through our sister group 'Gem State Black Hat Society' and we welcome new, solitaire and veteran Witches looking to deepen their knowledge, skills and practice. This group meets for in-person weekly classes in Twin Falls. The online workgroup (link below) is an extension of our classes and open to anyone who attends our weekly meetings. Message us through here or our online group to learn more. https://www.facebook.com/groups/673347492816504/
Magic Valley Pagans values diversity, compassion, curiosity, authenticity, self-motivation, truth, personal responsibility, healthy skepticism, and critical thinking. We aspire to ‘Know Thyself’.
We feel that the Dark and the Light are necessary, and we embrace all parts of ourselves. We do not adhere to any dogmatic belief systems, and while we believe we are better Pagans and magickal practitioners when we acknowledge our whole self, we respect each person's innate right to choose their own beliefs and follow their chosen path in whatever way meets the needs of their spiritual journey.
Our members hold diverse views and beliefs, identifying with paths including Atheopagan, Witch, Druid, Theist, Gnostic, Shaman, Wiccan, and Animist to name a few. No matter what Gods you do or do not believe in, our core values center around equality, personal choice and self-empowerment.
We strongly promote self-empowerment and self-reliance. We know from personal experience that true power can only come from within ourselves.
We welcome those who take ownership of their energy, and their own lives, and we respect and honor those who do not live their lives as victims and with learned helplessness.
We are Healers, Witches, Pagans, Casters, Heathens, and other Magickal Kin. We welcome all open-minded & respectful Pagans, regardless of your path or calling.
Magic Valley Pagans does not tolerate views that are racists, homophobic, sexist, or otherwise bigoted, or which promote any kind of exploitation of others.
We hold public circles and events, like socials, potlucks, Pagans Night Out and coffees. Check our Main Page under 'Events' to see what's coming up!https://www.facebook.com/MagicValleyPagansPage/events
We welcome anyone who is a sincere seeker on their path and wants to participate and help build a strong, healthy Pagan community. We do not tolerate predators, vampires, con-artists, pretenders, 'gurus', liars, drama, posers or anyone who would seek to take advantage of our members, use our group for a power grab, food/energy source or for other unethical and ill-related purposes. Sadly these elements are a part of the Pagan community the world over. We do everything we can to prevent it, and if need be, eliminate it. We are not "Light & Love" Pagans, we believe in a take-no-sh*t philosophy and practice this path with full competence. We will always confront you directly if we feel there is a problem, and we will listen to all sides. We will respond swiftly to any substantiated threat to our community.
Especially Notable: Any person who has been convicted of any a sex crime, regardless of the nature, a crime against a child, is a Registered Sex Offender, or who is deemed or otherwise known within the community to be a risk to others is prohibited from attending any MVP or Black Hat event.
If we discover you are a threat to our community via any of the above descriptions, we will not hesitate to warn other groups in the surrounding counties and those who come to this community seeking a safe place.
We know sometimes misunderstandings occur and we are not immune to making mistakes. We believe in peaceful resolutions when they can be had, and we believe in dealing with conflict directly and concisely. We welcome feedback, constructive criticism and respectful debate. This community is ours, too, and we want it to thrive and be a place we feel inspired to be the best versions of ourselves. We accept that we can not please everyone, and people pleasing is not our aim. We understand this group may not be the right fit for everyone, and if there has been no wrongdoing or abusing of members, we wish you well with no hard feelings as you move on to find your tribe and will gladly part as friends.
We promote a positive, collaborative and empowered experience at all of our gatherings. It is OK to share concerns, gripe a bit or vent on occasion. Those who create dysfunction, disharmony or bring a destructive element to our group will be removed. Everyone is expected to take responsibility for the energy they bring into our space.
Witches, Heathens, Pagans and Kindred Spirits are welcome to join our group and attend events. We support and encourage Pagan families! Children are welcome at many of our gatherings.
Some of our shared beliefs include:
1) Know yourself
2) Practice your craft
3) Never stop learning
4) Apply knowledge with wisdom
5) Practice balance
6) Keep your words in good order
7) Celebrate life
8) Attune with Nature and the cycles of the Earth
9) Nourish the mind, body and spirit
10) Practice mindfulness
11) Honor your path
We hope you will stay active on our FB page and like & share our posts! Be a part of our online discussions and comment frequently. Always be mindful with your words and keep it respectful. We love to hear from you and your opinions and thoughts are valued here. Thank you for your support and for being a part of our community! :)
