2016 JaxPPD Festivities
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.
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.

In this workshop, the Woods Wytch will teach you a practical approach to completely transform the way you live one step at a time.
