The People of the Woods
A WitchVox Sponsor

Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Cheney, Washington
Key Contact: Greybeard

Spiritual Path: Traditional Wiccan
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Open Circles... Legal Clergy... Teaching Available

Group Overview: The People of the Woods is a congregation and coven of the Old Religion, sometimes called "Wicca" or "Witchcraft, " one of the spiritual paths of pre-christian Native Europeans. We are legally incorporated as The First Congregational Church of the Old Religion, and formally recognized for tax purposes by the IRS.

Our coven is located south of Spokane, WA, near Cheney, WA, USA. We welcome contact from those of similar faith from the Spokane area. Pagans of compatible beliefs are sometimes invited to attend our religious observances of Moons and Sabbats. Our coven follows an initiatory mystery tradition.

The People of the Woods is currently accepting a limited number of suitable new members in the Spokane and Cheney area. The Church provides training, initiation and ordination into the Wiccan clergy in the traditional Wiccan manner. Apprentices may be accepted for the priesthood of the Old Religion. We do not recruit new members, but we will welcome any who sincerely desires to participate in our religion with us. Read our "About the Church" web page for more information on the coven. We are a smoke free congregation.

Members of the church get together to celebrate the ancient festivals that mark the natural cycles of the year. Some of our religion has been transmitted through oral tradition that is thousands of years old. It is the mission of our church to rediscover the lore and practice that were lost in the persecutions of the middle ages. Some of the rediscovery or recreation was done in the 20th century and some continues to this day. We are creating a new culture that echoes the pagan villages of the past. Members of the church meet for the ancient festivals days of Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnassad, and Samhain, and also the solar events, solstices and equinoxes. We observe these festival times with feasting, fun, pleasure, and sometimes by going on a weekend retreat together. We practice the Old Ways in our lives, based on love and acceptance of the earth and ourselves as fundamentally good.

Please read and understand our coven web pages before asking to become members. Thank you.
