What is Wiccan Moot?

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:

  1. At Wiccan Moot we recite poetry, whether original or classical. We read stories and teach Wiccan and Pagan folklore. We discuss and debate Wiccan spiritual and religious issues.
  2. And we do so in a civil, respectful and honourable fashion that befits the kind of people we are. When we are at Moot we are in a public location where people from outside our community will see us interacting. Therefore we are the representatives of our tradition and our values. We do not tolerate behaviour which will reflect poorly on our community.
  3. Moot is a place for community, a place for networking, a place for socializing and a place for camaraderie. But more importantly it is also a place for spiritual learning.
  4. We are respectful, liberal, and non–paternalistic. Look it up. We are different than other people, but we are not better than other people. Our community invites new faces, and we welcome anyone who is curious to sit and join us and to learn about the spiritual heritage that belongs to us all.

This Month's Main Theme

Wicca is a duo-theistic religion. Wiccans honour both a God and a Goddess. The yearly cycle of sabbats and esbats observe the life, death and rebirth phases of the God and the maiden, mother and crone phases of the Goddess. This month we will be discussing the Goddess, what she means and represents, and how she is symbolized and honoured in Wiccan tradition.

Please bring questions. Also bring Goddess poetry, folklore and stories to share.

Astrology

This month we will explore the sun sign Leo.

Herbalism

This month we will learn about Elderflower.
