Open Sabbats
We put on Open Sabbats all year long for the public.  These events are every six weeks on the Saturday evening closest to the actual date of the Sabbat.  They are child friendly and open to newbies and friends and family of the students.  The Rituals are always outside in our stone Circle with feasting afterwards, typically.  They are generally potluck type events with singing and drumming around the fire later.
We ask for a $5 donation for each adult at the Open Sabbats; this helps to defray costs at the Coven House. Our group typically provides the main dish for events, in addition to paper plates, napkins, plastic ware, cups, drinks and toilet paper, so contributions are immediately recycled for this sort of public use. This donation is especially important at Sabbats because some events can get 30+ attendees.
Pagan Pride Day

We are honored to sponsor Pagan Pride Day in Kalispell every year. The Pagan Pride Project is an international event held annually in the Fall in cities around the world to celebrate the second harvest festival (the Autumnal Equinox: Mabon), and to educate the public about alternative spiritual belief systems. We typically put on a small festival-type event with educational workshops, vendors, divinatory readers (Tarot, runes, palmistry, etc.) with several different rituals occurring throughout the day. The event is also a Charity Food Drive for the local Food Bank, so please bring nonperishable food items to donate; every contribution is greatly appreciated!

Gwen is the Local Coordinator for the Pagan Pride Project in Montana, and is the Regional Coordinator for Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and Nebraska. Please contact her for more information or for details about vending or teaching at the event.
Summerfest
We will also be taking over Summerfest, an event that we have traveled to in the Billings area for the past 6 years.  Lady Nytewind has graciously accepted our offer to continue her work after her retirement and so we will be organizing that for the year 2014 and on.  Summerfest is an alchemical Fire Circle Event.  The Ritual Circle typically starts at 11pm each night of this 3 night festival and goes till dawn with drumming and dancing and chanting and singing in the Circle all night in order to induce a trance state where transformational work can be accomplished.  There are also typically Workshops in the afternoon, Portals to experience and Installations to learn from as well as a Talent Show and a Lughnasadh Ritual as part of the weekend, since it is held close to that Sabbat, around August 1. This event has been placed on hiatus as we have not found a venue in our area that will accommodate all night drumming.  
Classes by the Garden of the Crescent Moon

We teach First, Second and Third Degree classes in Witchcraft, and we follow the Correllian Tradition in addition to incorporating material from our own training in the Fellowship of the Elder Path. Some material is drawn from the Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary where Gwen is studying for her Master's Degree in Interfaith Ministry. 

Study Group for Ceremonial Magick

We sponsor a study group in ceremonial magick for those who are interested in learning where many of the ideas, concepts and structures of modern Wiccan circles originate from. Ceremonial magick in its variety of forms is the basis for much of what we practice in our own Wiccan circles. This knowledge can be valuable for students who wish to learn about additional magickal concepts and rituals as they progress further in their studies.  This group has been put on hiatus due to lack of interest at this time. 

Other Classes

We occasionally offer other classes and workshops, such as those exploring the mythology of the Norse, Hindu, Egyptian, Celtic, Greek and Roman pantheons. We sometimes offer guided meditations as well as introductory classes to Herbalism, Tarot and the Runes. These are offered as interest dictates by various students as part of their training.

Costs

Currently we ask $240 for a year of classes, with half due up-front and $20 a monthly fee for the next 6 months, totaling $240. One may also choose to pay in full at any time.

For “elective” classes and workshops, we generally ask a $10-20 contribution depending on the subject matter and the length of the class.

For the Degree classes we can arrange work-exchange if someone genuinely can’t afford the cost of courses. Because there are a number of “hidden costs” associated with teaching classes, which can sometimes be as large as 10 people at a time, our fees are in place to cover these standard incidentals. We believe it is important for the student to “exchange” something for the knowledge they are receiving; this keeps the flow of energy balanced between instructor and student. 

No one is refused for lack of funds; please inquire about work-trade exchanges if you are in need.
