Commencing on 2 April 2020, Gathering Around the Cauldron is specifically designed group that meets on the first Thursday of each month. These Gatherings are suitable for both novices who may have read a few books and who would like to gain experience by putting this knowledge into practical application, as well as solitaries wishing to enhance their knowledge base and gain experience working with likeminded people.
Each Gathering will include a discussion on various practices and philosophies found within magick, ritual, folklore, myth and contemporary witchcraft, followed by a ritual. Some gatherings may include a craft making session.
Themes for the 2020 Gatherings will be:
