The Farmington/Park Hills Meetup Group

Spiritual Path: Eclectic
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Open Circles... Legal Clergy... Teaching Available
Group Overview: We are a discussion group in the Farmington and Park Hills, MO area. We hold discussions every other Saturday evening. We are NOT a coven, and we value our neutrality - our sole goal is to provide a sense of community for all pagans in the area - solitary or otherwise - without attempting to force anyone to change the way they practice their faith.
Early on, we, the organizers, recognized that this discussion group had to remain just that, because to become anything else threatened the goal of being a resource to any pagan in the area. Many pagans here feel as if they are alone - there is a strong need for a sense of community and a place where they can meet other pagans and discuss what it's like to be pagan in this area - a support network. A place where everyone can go and say, "Hey, everyone, I tried this spell, and it worked, " or "Hey, my dad's sick, can everyone help?"
When we meet pagans coming to our discussions for the first time, their thirst for a safe place to come home to is so strong; their need for someone to talk to about everything, because they can't talk to their neighbors, their bosses, the people they work with, and sometimes even their families, is overwhelming. When this meet-up group first started, it was begun with the idea of filling that gap. Because of that, we CANNOT and WILL NOT ever become a coven.
There seems to be a lot of bad feelings about covens in this area. There's a lot of concern, for various reasons, and we would be failing in our mission if we ignored that. Of course, there's one other concern we've noticed in this area. There's a need for community, but also a fear of other pagans. Several people have come to our discussions, and told us that they had told people they knew, "If you don't hear from us by (this time) , then call the police" before they came.
While we do understand the uncertainty surrounding meeting other people - are they flaky, are they nuts, are they dangerous, are they just like me or how different are they - we hope that by talking with other people who are participating in the meets, you will come to see that we, like you, are harmless... and we strive to maintain our middle ground, in the hopes of being for the good of everyone in our community. We hope that you will try a meet, and that we can be a source of friends, and a support to you, as we are for others.
If you're still unsure - please, join our FB group, or our Yahoo Group. Get to know us... and then decide if we're what you need, or what you want.
Blessed be -
Selqet the Kat, & Kristi-pixie.
