Group Overview: The Grove of Converging Paths (GOCP) was born of a need and desire. Allow me to explain.

A close friend once described organized religious groups as “walking someone else’s path.” His remark was timely as I had been pondering my own spiritual development, progress, and feelings of disconnection. I’d been walking someone else’s path without realizing I could (and probably should) find or forge my own. Several friends, of differing faiths, shared their similar feelings of stagnation or disconnection. It became clear to me that faith without expression plus fellowship offered little in the way of spiritual growth. The only way to find help was to offer it while graciously accepting help from others. We formed a kind of informal circle. Plenty of discussion, very basic ritual observances, and much study planted the seed for what would eventually become The Grove of Converging Paths. We observed our first formal Sabbat as the Grove of Converging Paths on Samhain, 2012.

The GOCP is a Wiccan group founded on the idea that everyone with an open mind and loving heart can share in the beauty that is life regardless of their spiritual practices. The key is having an open mind. We all seek the same Divinity; although individuals of different faiths may use different symbols and names. When we gather in circle we set aside our differences for the good of all. We hope to create a mindfulness that we are all together for a short period of time in which our paths converge. During that time we walk without expectation but with expectancy. As we part, our paths once again diverge. Perhaps the divergence will be temporary and you will find yourself with us again. Perhaps you will have gained what you needed to continue on your path without returning to ours. Such is the very nature of growth and journey. In either case, we express gratitude for our time together and extend blessings to those who depart.

Our rituals are created as Wiccan practices. (Although people of other faiths are invited to join us, they should understand they are attending a Wiccan service.) Open Sabbats can be attended by people of any faith as long as they can be welcoming and accepting of the beliefs of others. Our closed rites are intended only for those who have become members of our inner circle which is done through a series of classes. If you desire to study with us and work towards becoming a member of our inner circle then please email us. We will be in contact with you within 48 hours.

We welcome you to look us up on Facebook also.
