Group Overview: Is Hecate's Cauldron a Coven or Witches' Circle?

Hecate's Cauldron is a Witches' Circle and now nearly five years old! We are not a coven so people of all traditions are welcome ... it is our goal to bring witch's and interested pagans together for Wheel of the Year celebrations so that we may build strength in our numbers and community presence. While it is NOT our goal to subvert small groups/covens, we realize that if pagans always remain segmented, we will never have an impact on our larger geographical communities. Better than most, pagans know that the more people holding the same intention, the stronger the resonance in the Universe!

What is your Tradition?

Hecate's Cauldron does firmly ground its educational and ritual foundation in the Temple of Witchcraft tradition, founded by Christopher Penczak ( or . Though we hold a high level of well-earned respect for Mr. Penczak, we train in, and teach, the Temple Traditon because its philosophy and practices are ecclectic and inclusive, and because it provides a credible vehicle for learning and delving more deeply into the Mysteries. Furthermore, it is important to create a common language amongst ourselves as a community, and because the Temple Tradition is so inclusive, its teachings provide the perfect "common language" for a multi-tradition circle. All who are interested in studying with us may apply, and information on our classes is listed under the Witchvox "Events" page.

Is Hecate's Cauldron a real and active in-person community, and what is the focus of its activity?

The Hecate's Cauldron community celebrates Sabbats, we offer year and a day classes in Witchcraft 1, 2, and 3, we host regular, in-person social opportunities, we have a formal healing circle of dedicated witches, we have an active Women's group, we have a family support group called the Pagan Family Alliance, we have a growing library available to our members, we provide Rites of Passage, AND as an organization, we collect donations for two very important charitable programs in Jackson - we donate as a witch organization not only to support needy and deserving charitable organizations, but also in hopes of creating a more pagan-friendly environment through education and exposure to what it is we really believe and practice as a spiritual culture. Ignorance of witchcraft is both unfortunate and often still quite prevalent in our state, and ignorance breeds fear. Especially through our educational efforts, we hope to increase growth, resources, and support for MS pagans, and enlighten its greater, non-pagan community.

If I become a member of Hecate's Cauldron, can I lead Sabbats and classes?

We find ego and commercialism in spiritual pursuits offensive and endeavor to avoid this type behavior as a community. However, we are a "meritocrasy." This means that those who have the objective education, skills and experience level, and who are willing to roll up their sleeves, make a commitment to their own education and the work of HC are the ones who drive the function of HC! This does not mean everyone must have the same level of commitment, but that our High Priestesses, High Priests, and project leaders MUST.

I want to be sure that my privacy will be respected. Is that a reasonable expectation?

While we all hope for the day when Pagans and Witches can be as open with their spiritual path as our Christian friends, we are realists, and we aggressively work to protect those who prefer to, or who must, remain in the proverbial broom closet. We hold meet and greets for the very purpose of making sure everyone is a good fit and comfortable. If our meeting seems agreeable, you will be invited to participate in Sabbat meetings. If that goes well, and it becomes clear that you desire an active role in HC, we will add you, officially, as a member. Please be patient with us while we get to know you ... and take the opportunity to do likewise! We realize no one group is for everyone, and are not offended by those who choose not to join in our community!

Hecate's Cauldron of Mississippi has only a few threshold requirements for its members:

1) All participants are expected to come to us in a posture of "harm none." Harm is defined as intentions of harm or discord manifested and evidenced by words, actions and/or deeds.
2) all members must be at least 18 years of age or accompanied by a parent or guardian.
3) No participant who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs may enter the Circle or participate in classes.

These rules are in place for the best interest of, and to protect, all members of our community!
