Planning on visiting soon? Great! We look forward to meeting you!

Here are a few tips that will make your visit with us an enlightening one…

  • Ask tons of questions. We welcome them!
  • It is acceptable to arrive an hour prior to the start of a ritual.
    This gives you time to settle down, get a tour, and chat with people.
  • Anyone who comes needs permission from the High Priestess and High Priest.
    Please do not extend invitations to others without getting permission first.
  • Please use discretion regarding its location and the identities of those who attend.
    The covenstead is a private residence.
  • We feast together after Sabbat rituals, but not Esbats.
    Not sure what to bring? You can’t go wrong with a bottle of wine, your favorite dish, or dessert.
    Please bring enough for 12.
  • Wear comfortable, causal clothing and shoes. If your feet aren’t happy, you won’t be either.
  • Please do not wear the colors red or purple.
  • Please do not touch the altar without permission, but feel free to ask questions about the items on it.
  • Please do not touch anyone’s jewelry without getting permission first.
  • Please refrain from the use of mind-altering drugs prior to or during ritual.
    Anyone bringing illegal drugs to the covenstead will be asked to leave immediately.
  • Please do not use any alcohol prior to the ritual.
  • Financial donations defray the shared costs of the Grove.
    Donations are not expected of guests, but are always appreciated.
