Hearth Musings

Changes around the hearth

Since our first circle, Hearth and Kin has been changing and growing to meet the needs of our the community we serve. To continue to meet those changing needs we have decided to combine our full moon and sabbat circles with those of the Circle of the Sacred Muse in Courtenay and Campbell River as well as start a local non tradition specific working circle under the guidance of priestess Tanya Duncan.


For each full moon and sabbat, we will run a bus service up island that anyone is welcome to ride on for small donation to cover fuel costs (Typically $10 per person). This will allow anyone who wishes to practice the ATC tradition to do so as well as provide access to open public ritual.

For those interested in participating in the local working circle, please know that this will be a closed group and those who are interested in participating should contact Tanya directly by e-mail at: kittenlynne@yahoo.com

A schedule will be posted on our website http://www.hearthandkin.org as well as posted on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/hearthandkin

Hard and Soft Boiled Polytheism

As covered previously I’m a devotee of Artemis, but I wasnt’ always this way. My belief in the gods has morphed over the years I’ve been a pagan from hard polytheist to atheist to soft polytheist, which is where I sit now. How can I be both a devotee of Artemis, a singluar Goddess of [...]

Witchy Wednesday~Priestess Problems

Nearly a year ago I stepped into the shoes of official Priestess of the Circle of Hearth and Kin. They were big shoes to fill, as our former Lady was well known, well liked, and really had her self together. Me? There were a number of differences, but by now I’ve worked through most of [...]

Tools of the Trade: The Athame

Altar tools are one thing I think every Pagan has in common. Every tradition has their own tools for honouring Deity, directing energy, consecration, etc. In Wicca the most common tools are the chalice, pentacle, wand, and athame. When I first became Pagan I was excited by all the new stuff (shallow, I know!) and [...]

A Long and Winding Road

Welcome to the new weekly Circle of Hearth and Kin postings!
