It is the time of crisp morning air and rainy days; a time to gather with friends and family around a cozy bonfire with a mug of hot cider and reflect on our blessings received over the last year.
We remember those who have gone on before us and honor them in our ceremonies.
We celebrate life and give thanks.
The Spiral Grove wishes everyone a safe and blessed autumn season!
Cellina Rhiannon Whiteflame, Board President

Spiral Grove Diversity Statement
Diversity is the one thing we all have in common...
Let's celebrate it!
At each of these Open Celebrations we make a commitment to honor the diversity of All Our Relations whereby any person who does no harm to others in the circle is welcome. At each of the open celebrations there is an intention to create an atmosphere of acceptance of diversity by the circle facilitator. There is no discrimination based on race, age, sex, sexual orientation (e.g. whether gay, straight, or transgender), physical appearance, religion, class, or physical or mental disabilities.
Tolerance is a lifelong study for many of us and our community is always striving to learn new ways to grow in this positive and balanced direction.
Statement from Spiral Grove Founder Maya White Sparks addressing the August 12th events in Charlottesville, VA.:
The Spiral Grove is an interpath community of pagan spirituality and we honor all traditions that follow the Wiccan Rede of "Harm None". However, not all pagan traditions follow the law. We want to make it clear that the Spiral Grove does not endorse "alt-right" and nazi movements. Rather we strive to co-create a community of inclusiveness guided by respect for human rights of ALL peoples. Since our inception in 1990, we have had the following Diversity Policy in our bylaws (see below). We pray now for awareness of the LOVE that the Goddess and the God have for all their children. May it be a healing balm among all our friends who were traumatized, who lost their friend Heather, and who were physically injured. May healing, mutual respect and peace prevail.
