Fertile Ground Gathering is an annual Beltane festival celebrating since 2008, and takes place at Prince William Forest Park in Triangle, VA. Our volunteer team puts together a rich, powerful, rejuvenating gathering that has become a much-anticipated retreat for many in the region and beyond. Each year, we create an integral experience around a central theme, and all our workshops, rituals, activities, and even performances are designed to come together to bring that theme to life. We are excited to return in 2022 for our first in-person gathering since COVID-19, and we look forward to celebrating with you!
The Hearth of Hestia is a new moon coven focused on empowerment, education, and edification of all members. Like our patron goddess Hestia, we welcome witches and inquiring minds from all walks of life regardless of age, race, gender identity, religion, or sexual orientation. For ease of our members we meet regularly in two locations, Hestia’s Hearth East in Alexandria VA and Hestia’s Hearth West in Leesburg VA. Especially open towards those new to witchery, we’re aiming to uplift each other and grow in the craft together.
The Fellowship Beyond the Star (Fellowship) is a nondenominational Pagan group located in the DMV area. Founded in September 2013, our goal is to provide a space for Pagans of different paths to discuss and share their religious experiences and beliefs. We are an inclusive organization that meets three times a month for themed discussions, a book club, and informal coffee talks. Inclusivity is a cornerstone of our organization, and we do not tolerate bigoted language or behavior, including but not limited to racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and transphobia.
The NoVA Pagan Moot is an open, “non-denominational” or “pan-pagan” Meetup group for both pagans and the pagan-curious. Our aim is to help seekers find a path that’s right for them, and to serve the greater NoVA pagan community as a gathering point for individuals and groups to share information. We meet the last Sunday evening of each month to hear guest speakers on a variety of pagan-related themes; including spirituality, social issues, tools & crafts, local & regional events, and other unique topics of interest.
