Wicca, a Neopagan religion
How to contact a local Wiccan
practitioner or Wiccan coven
Since Wiccans total less than 1% of the population of North America, it is sometimes
difficult for a solitary Wiccan to find other members of their faith in her/his locality.
Consult the index of individuals, covens and groups maintained by the Witches' Voice at:
They have a separate menu for each U.S. state, Canadian province, UK
political area, Australian state and many foreign countries. They also
have a section for teens called "Young Pagan Contacts" at:
http://www.witchvox.com You need to approach these contacts with
care. There is always the possibility that a person or group may
misrepresent themselves in the listing. A person describing themselves
as a 13 year old might actually be a 40 year old predator! We recommend
that you proceed cautiously and make the first meeting in a public
location, like a mall.|
Go to the Witches Meetup web site at:
enter your country and location. As of 2003-Samhain, this group
organizes meetings in public places at 7 PM local time, on the 4th
Tuesday of each month in 523 locales (cities, towns regions) in 25
countries around the world. |
||If you cannot find a contact in your area, there are other routes that you might
||Take out a personal listing in the Witchvox site in the hope that someone in
area searches for a contact.
||Attempt to find a listing for a group or individual in the next large city. They might
know of a person or coven in your area.
||Go to your local New Age book store, Occult shop, Pagan shop or Metaphysical shop. You
might be able to find a contact by viewing their bulletin board or talking to an employee.
Make contact with a local congregation or fellowship which is affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association. Some Wiccans seek
spiritual fellowship by joining UU groups.
Attend a local Wiccan/Neopagan gathering or festival. A calendar of
such events is maintained by the Witches' Voice at: http://www.witchvox.com/network/events/
We urge caution when contacting an unknown Wiccan individual or group in person for the first
time. There are a lot of nut-cases in North America and Neopaganism has its share. We recommend
arranging the first meeting in a public place, and proceeding cautiously.
