Pagan Covens and Groups

Sanctuary: Realms of Spiritual Growth: We are an open group for those seeking to share spiritual knowledge and growth along their path. Our gatherings include spiritual discussions, classes, workshops, Reiki Shares, guided meditations, hikes, rituals, and spiritual practice. Dustin, our ordained Pagan minister, is available for handfastings, death rites, house cleansings, counseling, and more. We have a Pagan Community Library, where books on several different paths and spiritual topics can be loaned out for reading at home. As part of our community and charity efforts, we developed Jacksonville’s Pagan Pride Alliance, Inc. and host the annual Jacksonville’s Pagan Pride Day.

 

Chosen Path Church: Founded to provide spiritual, social and educational opportunities for Jacksonville area Correllians and other Pagans.  All Paths are welcomed at Chosen Path Church.  You do not need to be a Correllian to participate with us. We offer rituals in honor of the Goddess and God for all Sabbats and Esbats, a monthly study group, individual rites of passage and other Pagan services. The Correllian-Nativist Tradition teaches that humans interpret Deity in a way that speaks to them.  Each interpretation is as equally valid as the other. We work heavily with the Ancestors and psychic training is a core curriculum for our Clergy. 

 

Heart of Manannan, Fellowship of Anamastia Coven: A unique Druidic-Wiccan fellowship serving northeastern Florida that encourages the reverence and preservation of the old ways with the inspired inclusion of contemporary Earth-based ideals. We offer fellowship, guidance, and mentorship to those interested in a serious study of Celtic-inspired Witchcraft and Druidism, a harmony we have come to know as “Druidcraft”.  We are open to new members. 

 

Jacksonville Covenant Unitarian Universalist Pagans: JaxCUUPs is an affinity group that meets at Buckman Bridge Unitarian Universalist Church (http://bbuuc.org) and is open to ALL people in the Duval, Clay, Nassau, etc Counties. You do not have to be a member of the church or identify with any particular tradition or religion to attend our meetings. We do celebrate all solar holidays; perform some full or new moon rituals; hold book studies or have open topic discussions. We meet every other Wednesday night.

 

Celestial Order & Temple of Olympus (E.O.C.T.O.): An LGBT-integrated Religious Organization serving the Occult Pagan & Alternative Spiritual community of Northern Florida. Our mission is currently manifest in 3 localized bodies: Olympic House of Venus-Hathor [OHVH] (Hellenic Alexandrian Witchcraft Tradition), North FL LGBT Witches & Pagans (a center of LGBT Social Resource & Spirituality), and Pillars of Prophecy [POP] (a System of Psychic Mediumship & Spiritualism). We are a family of love, fellowship and worship of the Old Gods celebrating each Full and Dark Moon as well as 10 Religious Sabbat Festivals per year. We believe that all Nature is sacred and that divinity is present in all things. The Old Gods speak to us today through oracles, revealing Their divine wisdom. We offer sacramental rites to all who ask without regard to sex, sexual orientation, race, family status or any other prejudice that separates one from the Union of Nature, Cosmos, & the Divine. EOCTO is 501c3 incorporated in the States of Florida, Minnesota, Tennessee, & New York (coming soon).

 

Compassion League Temple: A fully chartered Correllian Nativist Tradition Temple established in 2013. CLT offers in-person or online mentoring for First, Second, and Third Degree Wiccan studies.  The Correllian Nativist Tradition offers many study opportunities, including Shaman Training. Compassion Crafts, a division of the Temple, provides chemo caps free of charge to any Pagan undergoing treatment regardless of location.  CLT is proud to announce First Coast Crone Connection, a Pagan Circle by women for women in Jacksonville. For more information on monthly gatherings and upcoming Croning ceremonies, emails may be addressed to CompassionLeague@Yahoo.com.

1 pm Correllian Soul Retrieval by Witch School International

This workshop deals with Correllian Soul Retrieval, which is a somewhat different technique than the more familiar Shamanic Soul Retrieval, although both techniques have the same goal. Soul Retrieval is a powerful technique of healing and spiritual integration. As we go through life, parts of our energy become trapped and cut off from us through traumatic experiences. For some people a great deal of their spiritual energy may have become blocked and unavailable to them. Soul Retrieval releases these blockages and allows us to reintegrate the energy back into our present lives. Soul Retrieval can be used to address issues from the present life or from past lives and is an important technique for Karmic Disentanglement. From his book “Witch School Lessons for Second Degree”.

2pm Children’s Workshop by JaxPPA’s Volunteer Jamie – Leaf Craft

2pm Tools of the Craft: Practicum of The Magick Wand by John K. Young

Materials will include wands for display, branches and limbs to illustrate spotting a wand in the wild, simple woodworking tools for display, and handouts. Participants will be offered the option of performing a simple spell, under instruction, to strengthen their wand hand. (Materials will be provided.)

3pm International Peace Warriors Intro and Ceremony by Chosen Path Church

This presentation will discuss the need for prayers for peace in today’s world of wars, violence and hate speech. International Peace Warriors is a non-denominational social network which uses social media to enlist people to routinely pray for peace around the world. Through the use of social media peace prayers are shared, schedule events are held, such as global rolling peace prayers, and strategies and tools developed for widening the ripple effect of prayers for peace. Participants will learn about the International Peace Prayer movement, how to assist it, what tools are available to them to participate and where to go to get more information. They will be attuned to a Peace Prayer Sigil and receive a Peace Prayer Sigil to use upon leaving the workshop. The session will conclude with a communal Prayer for Peace ceremony.

3pm Rupert’s Tales and Tunes by Kyrja

Join Rupert the rabbit in this interactive story-time workshop as he learns that intentions and imagination are two of the most-important ingredients in all things magickal. Two children have come to Rupert’s favorite tree in “Rupert’s Magickal Imagination.” Kim wants Rob to help her make a bubble of magick, but Rob isn’t so sure he wants to. He is well-versed in all the tools, herbs, colors, and elements used in creating magick, but wants to know why intention and imagination are so important, and what happens if someone doesn’t believe in magick. Become a Friend of Rupert by singing along with Kyrja about bubbles, birds, and wriggly things! Many surprises are in store for everyone who joins us.

3 pm  Transformative Anger by Draig Spellsinger

Using anger to be active and empowered, rather than passive aggressive, in mundane situations.

4pm Sigil Magick by Red Pill Productions

A great way to harness your naturally abundant psychic energy to help manifest any desire. In a nut-shell, sigil magick is a form of creative visualization that uses the psychic energy evoked by artistic expression to activate and focus the Law of Attraction. It translates your conscious wishes into the highly symbolic and metaphorical language spoken by your unconscious mind, where your true psychic power resides. Learn why comic book superstar author Grant Morrison lives by this simple yet effective mind technique. Feel free to bring your own drawing materials as this will be a hands-on, step-by-step, “how-to” workshop. (But not to worry, Dr. Belky will provide pens and paper for those who need them.) Also bring an open mind, a sense of humor, and a big fat juicy wish that needs fulfilling. Artistic talent NOT required.

4 pm Sacred Chanting by Jax CUUPS

We will be introducing seven easy chants that are commonly used in the Pagan community. We hope these chants will help both newcomers, solitaries, and any others who may not be familiar with chanting in both their magical workings and their journey along their Pagan path.
