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. We learn about essential Wiccan practices.
  2. And we do so in a civil, respectful and honourable fashion that befits the kind of people we are. 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. 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 Theme

Spring is in the air. The flowers are blooming, the seeds of the season are being sown, the wild creatures of Nature are frolicking in the return of the good weather. The Sun God is a young man, full of passion and energy. The Lord and Lady are conjoined at this time of year as partners and young lovers.

This month, we will be focusing on the Wiccan sabbat Beltaine. We'll discuss its history, as well as it's religious and symbolic significance to us today.

The Kingston Community House affords us a private, comfortable location where we can explore some practical components of Wiccan ritual and celebration. We will continue this month with more circle casting techniques and practice, as well as a Beltaine focused hands-on activity. Please feel welcome to bring Beltaine folklore, poetry and or stories to share. If you have a favourite circle casting tool, bring that along to practice circle casting.
