The Stag & Moon Coven

A Gardnerian Wiccan Coven straddling Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire & Buckinghamshire

About Us

Wicca is a nature based, spiritual, magical path with its roots in European paganism, folk magic and the western occult movement.

Wicca and Witchcraft go hand in hand. Our Witchcraft practice is within the Wiccan setting of our devotional activities.

Initiatory Wicca is a relatively modern mystery tradition with its lineage going back to its founder Gerald Brosseau Gardner in the early to mid 20th Century. It is an esoteric tradition which allows for personal development, spiritual growth and the sharing of talents and skills. Initiates are Witches as well as Priests/Priestess of The Craft.
