Wiccan Moot is a meeting place of Wiccans and Pagans and friends of
the earth–based religious movement. It is a place to socialize and a place to
meet friendly and like–minded folk.
But it is much more than that:
Lisa has been practicing Wicca since 1981. She was born in Kingston, and became a permanent resident in 1987. And began working with a local group right away.
During the last 29 years, she has given workshops and taught courses on Wicca. She has designed and led ritual, contributed to Pagan events and has been a visible face of Wicca in the Kingston community.
Greg has been practicing Wicca since 1997. He first moved to Kingston in 2000 and became a permenant resident in 2001.
He was integrally involved in the Kingston Pagan community
for over a decade. During which time he has given workshops and lectures,
designed and led public ritual and been a spokesperson for Paganism in
the Kingston community.
Our mission is to foster a positive, healthy and fruitful Wiccan community in our home city, Kingston, Ontario. Wiccan Moot is one step in helping to see our vision come true.

This month's Wiccan Moot is less than two weeks before Hallowe'en. October 31st is a sacred day for Wiccans, which we celebrate as Samhain (sa-wen), one of the four greater sabbats. It is considered by many Wiccans to be the most important and most personal sabbat. This month we will be discussing the religious and symbolic significance of Samhain and give you some practical tips on how you can celebrate.
Please bring questions. Also bring Samhain related poetry, folklore and stories to share.
This month we will explore the sun sign Libra.
This month we will learn about Henbane.
