Temple of the Spiral Path

Welcome to the home of the Temple of the Spiral Path. Founded in 1995, our family of covens - Stranger's Gate and North Wyldewood - practices the Shadowfolk Tradition of Witchcraft.  We are dedicated to serving our community through ritual, education, and celebration.

Our tradition honors the artistic soul of the Old Religion through ritual music, transformative storytelling, poetry and the visual arts. Devotion to the Gods is expressed by drawing upon the magical creative abilities inherent in all people.

We facilitate open Sabbat rituals throughout the year, and run courses exploring Wicca and the Western Mystery Traditions.  For more on our class and ritual schedule, please see our EVENTS page.
