and by the fire of your bright spirit, share a spark of courage
By the waters of your womb, cleanse me in healing wisdom
and by the earth that is your body, empower my spirit in transformation."
Our Pagan Recovery Support Group meets weekly in NorthWest Austin.

* Our focus is on developing our personal program of recovery by attending meetings, finding a sponsor and working the steps.
* More importantly, we encourage those from diverse pagan paths and traditions to share their struggles and successes, through the prism of Paganism.

An Open Letter to Dictionary.com: Religious Bia Against Pagans?
“atheist” “infidel” “profane” “filthy” “foul” “obscene” “faithless” “godless”
We’ve all sat down to write a blog article or school assignment, right? What is one thing that you reach for - a dictionary or thesaurus. Using an online reference source is quick, easy, and painless - unless you happen to be Pagan or Wiccan, that is!
Dictionary.com has seven (7) negative stereotypes and over 114 thesaurus synonyms for Pagans. By contrast, the Christian definitions and synonyms are positively glowing. Of course, there are no working synonyms for Wiccan nor Wicca. (And don’t get us started on the synonyms for Heathen!)
As a result, the Wiccan Interfaith Council International has sent a letter of complaint to Dictionary.com, and their parent company IAC. We have also posted the letter and the entire contents of the Pagan and Christian references on our website for all to see. Visit our website to read about this visit to the Dark Ages, and then post your thoughts on our Facebook page.
* The Weaving Traditions Journal is now available:
The WICI is happy to announce the publication of our new journal, entitled, "Weaving Traditions: A Pagan Pathway to Worship".
It's now available to order for $12.50 (price includes shipping/handling) * through our website at:
Created by our WICI membership, this educational journal is an introduction to the world of Wicca, suitable for newcomers into the Craft, as well as their family and friends.
It is also an excellent resource for prison ministry and community outreach.
