Group Overview: The Greenhaven Tradition came into existence in central Illinois for a variety of reasons and purposes. The most important among these include:
* to practice a Pagan lifestyle and activities;
* to provide an environment for the teaching and learning of Pagan principles and magickal practices;
* to foster and encourage research into magickal theory;
* and simply for the opportunity to socialize and have fun with other people of similar mindsets.
We are also committed to the celebration of life and its mysteries by observing the sabbats and esbats; in developing means of ethically utilizing magic for personal growth and everyday needs; and in expanding our own knowledge and activities regarding ecological and sociological issues.
We are, individually and collectively, Eclectic within reason. Our personal experiences and group ritual structure draw from a vast and divergent array of systems, cultures, and contexts. However, we take care to avoid invoking any directly conflicting concepts during a specific event and, to a lesser extent, in the overall membership of the group.
In our ongoing practice, we are dedicated to applying the principles of the scientific method to our exploration of magickal theory - our response to the classic "Ask 3 witches, get 5 answers" is to test several answers and ascertain through experience which works best for us, within the context of our current membership.
Thanks to the presence of several colleges within easy driving distance of our rural Coles County location, our membership has been fluid, with ages ranging from 18 to late 50s, and with a significant diversity in experience and background. We are open to networking with other groups or individuals in central Illinois and elsewhere; please visit our website for more details.
