Seekers who are local to the Raleigh area are advised to first interact with members of Foxfire through public events. The Triangle Area Pagan Alliance hosts a variety of social events throughout the year, including a monthly meet and greet at Arcana in Durham. This can be a fun, low-pressure way to meet, socialize, and determine fit over time. It is typical to meet in a public place and interact socially prior to being invited to attend coven functions of any kind. Participation in the public Pagan community--if you have not done so already--also allows for exposure to other groups and traditions that may be better suited to your particular needs and goals.
If contacting us through email, please be as thorough as you feel comfortable. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be to determine possible fit, and the more likely you are to receive a reply. Your Craft history, interests, and goals are all relevant, and we are happy to answer questions about the coven within reason.
We are most interested in mature seekers who are already versed in some form of witchcraft, but are explicitly interested in Gardnerian Wicca, and can also articulate why. Beginners are advised to spend time pursuing a solitary practice, studying independently, and experimenting. We do not make witches; we merely train people who are already witches to practice within this specific tradition.
