Calling all LGBTQIA* (and Allies) Pagans, Witches and Seekers!
The existing words and images of the pagan paths do not always reflect our relationships, our bodies, or our connection to the divine. Bring your truth, your passion, your questions and your answers. Let us come together, both LGBTQ* people and allies, and speak about our experiences within our traditions and how that fits in the wider framework of Witchcraft, Paganism and Earth-Centered Spirituality.
All are welcome to attend, regardless of how you identify, and no one is expected or required to disclose their sexual or gender identification. Only an open mind and respectful attitude are required. We welcome all ages from youth to silver haired. Multi-generational discussion encouraged.
Regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey, there is a place for you in our circle. Whether you cracked open your first book today or you are an experienced practitioner of The Old Ways and Earth-Centered Spiritual Traditions.
It is time for us to find our place at the table, stand in our power together and blaze our unique trail on the path.
What is a Queer Pagan Spirit Cafe?
A Spirit Cafe is intentional space for folk to gather and discuss topics important to them. Spirit Cafes can focus on healing, death, or really any focus that the group chooses. The Queer Pagan Spirit Cafe at AwenTree was inspired by the Queer Spirit Cafes hosted by Temple of Witchcraft and will focus on topics relevant to Queer Pagans, Witches and Earth-Centered Spiritual Seekers. Food and drink is not typically served, but we will have complimentary hot tea to offer at ours. You are welcome to bring a snack.
Who are the facilitators?
We will have three core facilitators.
