Welcome to The Gathering... A World Wide Network Group

Bless Be...

This is your invitation...

The Gathering has been going since our way of life started many long years ago. There are so many people today following the different paths of witchcraft that the need to form together in one World Wide Network still one Group, (tho their own path) The Gathering started. A gathering of all Pagans interested in witchcraft. To bring unity and to share interests with one another.

This is not limited to groups (or circles) but to everyone, including solitaires, families and children are welcome. By registering with The Gathering...we will be able to unite those in similar areas together to form chapters in their Counties with a State Representative. In this way each person in The Gathering will know what events are going on:

1) in their County

2) within their State

3) with the National Gathering (held in different parts of America yearly)

4) with Gatherings in other Counties

Bi-Esbate are held at different locations so that all can be involved in The Gathering. At present we are looking for grounds, or any place to call home, where we can offer more classes and opportunities at one central location, to be the main location for The Gathering.

Joining The Gathering is joining friends and others to share witchcraft with and much more. Our expressions, and even the way we dress or invoke the powers, are all shared by all of us in The Gathering. Tell others about our Onelist at:

Events such as Outings to go to National Forest Services and have The Gatherings where hundreds and thousands of people can come and enjoy a range of events and activities in the pagan-friendly settings offered by The Gathering. Parties and Holidays are just a few ways we can do things with others as we share the warmth around the seasons and so much more. Potluck when we all bring something to share at a communal meal and enjoy friendship...

For self is a sea boundless and measureless. Say not,
"I have found the truth," but rather,
"I have found a truth." Say not,
"I have found the path of the soul." Say rather,
"I have met the soul walking upon my path,"
for the soul walks upon all paths.
~Kahlil Gibran...
